Watch CNN’s Mini-Doc On The Rise & Fall Of Clipse

Earlier this year, we passed along the rumor that the great brotherly Virginia Beach duo Clipse were back together and working on a new album. Those reports, sadly, proved to be false. Pusha T has gone on to solo stardom, and his older brother Malice has rechristened himself No Malice, become a born again Christian,… More »

Clipse Working On New Album

Clipse, the duo of Virginia Beach brother Pusha T and Malice, were responsible for some of the best rap music of the last decade. But after releasing 2009’s Till The Casket Drops, Pusha T went solo and signed up with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music, finally releasing the great solo album My Name Is My NameMore »

Pusha T – “Pain” (Feat. Future) Video

Pusha T released his truly excellent solo album My Name Is My Name earlier this week, and he’s already made stark and minimal music videos for many of its tracks: “Numbers On The Boards,” “King Push,” “Nosetalgia,” “Sweet Serenade.” Now he’s got one for the buzzing, clinical Future collab “Pain.” Future isn’t in this one… More »

Pusha T – “Sweet Serenade” (Feat. Chris Brown) Video

Tomorrow, Clipse rapper Pusha T releases his absolutely nasty new solo album My Name Is My Name. And last week, he became the first artist to land in the two two spots on the Five Best Videos Of The Week list since I’ve been doing it, thanks to his hard and minimal videos for “Nosetalgia“… More »

Stream Pusha T My Name Is My Name

Clipse rapper Pusha T has been slowly releasing songs from his new solo album My Name Is My Name for months now — “Numbers On The Boards,” “Who I Am,” “Sweet Serenade,” “Nosetalgia,” “King Push” — and they’ve all been ferocious.

Pusha T – “King Push” Video

The cold-blooded Clipse rapper Pusha T releases his new solo album My Name Is My Name next month, and from all available evidence (“Numbers On The Boards,” “Who I Am,” “Sweet Serenade, “Nosetalgia“) it is going to rule. Further evidence: “King Push,” a new track that Kanye West co-produced with, of all possible people, Joaqui… More »

Pusha T – “Sweet Serenade” (Feat. Chris Brown)

Chris Brown: He still gets to appear on rap songs! Sometimes, they’re songs from rappers that we like. And sometimes, they’re even good songs. That’s the case here. Clipse rapper Pusha T has been working on his solo album My Name Is My Name for a while now, and its release date has been pushed… More »

No Malice – “Shame The Devil” (Feat. Pusha T)

It’s been nearly four years since the great Virginia rap duo Clipse released Till The Casket Drops, their last album. Since that time, Pusha T has gone onto something resembling solo stardom, signing to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint and delivering some very cold verses on some very big songs. Meanwhile, his brother and rapping… More »

Pusha T – “Who I Am” (Feat. Big Sean & 2 Chainz) (Prod. Kanye West)

Clipse rapper Pusha T, reinvigorated by his recent Kanye West association, sounded absolutely monstrous on his recent single “Numbers On The Boards” earlier this year. And the latest single from My Name Is My Name, the album he’ll release this summer, reunites the cast of characters from Kanye West’s “Mercy,” one of last year’s best… More »

Pusha T – “Millions” Video (Feat. Rick Ross)

Clipse rapper Pusha T recruited Rick Ross for “Millions,” the lead single from his Wrath Of Caine mixtape, and now both guys are here to rap animatedly in the song’s video. You’ll never believe this, but the clip is full of drug-dealer iconography: Guns, expensive cars, beautiful but duplicitous girls, police raids. You can tell… More »

Pusha T – “Millions” (Feat. Rick Ross)

Clipse rapper and resident G.O.O.D. Music hardass Pusha T is getting ready to release his new Wrath Of Caine mixtape, and the first song we’ve heard from it is “Millions,” a dark and heavy banger with a hard-trudging beat from Southside and Rico Beats. Pusha remains solid and durable as ever, but big-name guest Rick… More »

Pusha T – “Pain” (Feat. Future)

Clipse rapper and, more recently, G.O.O.D. Music consigliere Pusha T has a new album coming sometime next year, and its first single made its way onto the internet last night. It’s called “Pain,” and it’s an excellently sparse and sinister track. Sad R&B robot Future gives what might be his saddest-robot hook, sounding like a… More »

Lord Willin’ Turns 10

Clipse’s “Grindin,” the first single from Lord Willin’, sounded like it came from the future. It arrived, for some reason, on a VHS tape at my college radio station. We watched that video over and over again because everyone loves grimy crew’d up rap videos, but also because YouTube didn’t exist yet and it wa… More »

Pusha T – “Exodus 23:1″ Video

Last week, Clipse rapper Pusha T released “Exodus 23:1,” a dis track that sure seemed to be aimed at Drake. The song didn’t name names, but Lil Wayne noticed and promptly released the return shot “Ghoulish.” And now Pusha’s got a video for “Exodus 23:1,” so this thing is definitely ongoing. The new video doesn’t… More »

Pusha T – “Exodus 23:1″

Clipse rapper and current Kanye West beneficiary Pusha T is mad as fuck about something, and he’s letting us know about it. Pusha’s new solo track “Exodus 23:1″ heavily references Biggie Smalls’ “What’s Beef” and aims a whole bunch of missiles at an unnamed foe, who sure as hell seems to be Drake. Listen below. More »

Pusha T – “Oooh” (Feat. Hodgy Beats, Liva Don & Tyler, The Creator)

A few years ago, Clipse launched a clothing line called Play Cloths, and I’m not sure I’ve ever seen any non-Clipse human beings wearing their clothes. Nonetheless, Clipse rapper and recent Kanye beneficiary Pusha T recently cranked out a mixtape to go along with the Play Cloths holiday collection. It’s creatively titled Play Cloths HolidayMore »

Stream Pusha T’s Fear Of God II: Let Us Pray

Pusha T’s sequel to last year’s Fear Of God mixtape is a full-blown LP called Fear Of God II out on Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint/Decon, and it’s packed with some of rap’s contemporary heavy-hitters like Mr. West, Young Jeezy, Tyler The Creator and Juicy J. While Fear Of God overreached a little, in terms of… More »

Pusha T – “What Dreams Are Made Of”

Clipse rapper Pusha T has been a bit inconsistent since he went solo recently. But the new track “What Dreams Are Made Of,” which you can grab below, is just nasty. It’s a hard strings-and-organ pound with Pusha sneering crime-kingpin boasts with the deadpan fury that won him a place in our hearts in the… More »

Ten Hip-Hop Albums That Would Make Great Performances

Somehow, billing an artist to play their most famous release, exclusively, got super vogue all of the sudden. Nas did Illmatic. Erykah Badu did Baduizm. A Tribe Called Quest did Midnight Marauders. So, yeah, some good stuff got covered, but what else is there? In appreciation of the ever-strong Rock The Bells festival series, and… More »

Pusha T – “Body Work” (Feat. Juicy J, Meek Mill & French Montana)

Clipse MC Pusha T has assembled a pretty strong gutter-rap all-star team for his new single “Body Work.” The track co-stars Philly livewire Meek Mill, Bronx slow-flow stylist French Montana, and veteran Three 6 Mafia knucklehead Juicy J, the latter of whom absolutely steals the track with a powerful display of unadulterated goonism. Listen to… More »
