Clipse’s great sophomore album Hell Hath No Fury turned 10 yesterday, and at the end of his look back at the album, my colleague Collin Robinson expressed high hopes that the brotherly duo might join forces again someday. In a new GQ interview, both Pusha T and No Malice seem open to and even excited about the prospect of a fourth LP together.
First of all, there’s this bit where Pusha expresses regret about not recording with his brother anymore:
This is not where I envisioned myself not where I wanted it to go. I came into this game with my brother and my best friend and that’s it, and now, I’m making music with good friends, but not the people I came in with. I’m not with my brother. Every aspect of what I love about this has been yanked away in some way shape or form…. I don’t have the fun of like really making music with like my best friends who live up the street from me.
That passage led the interview to ask whether a reunion album could happen, which led No Malice to respond, “Beyond a shadow of a doubt, I know we can do it.” Pusha later added that he’s in as soon as his brother — who has previously been against reuniting due to the Christian faith he embraced after Clipse’s heyday — gives the go-ahead: “It would be an amazing album. We could totally conquer the world.” So, that sounds extremely promising.
