Just be the best you that you can be because ‘let the dead bury the dead.’ This rat race is always going to go on.”

With raw lyricism and infectious, layered beats courtesy of The Neptunes, the Virginia Beach rap duo put their state on the map with new millennium hits like “Grindin,” “When The Last Time” and “Mr. Me Too.” For brothers Gene “Malice” Thornton and Terrence “Pusha T,” the climb up hip-hop’s hierarchy was rapid and well deserved. In the midst of success, Malice lost track of his soul. But unlike many other rap stars, he was man enough to admit it.
Fourteen years after their debut album, Lord Willin’, six years after announcing Clipse’s separation and four years after officially changing his rap moniker to No Malice, the 43-year-old MC is ready to tell his story of finding God in the new documentary, The End Of Malice. No Malice details losing himself in the business and finding himself again in God in the doc, which premieres on Revolt TV Easter Sunday (March 27). Co-produced by Second Films and Ditoremayo, The End Of Malice features interviews with Pharrell Williams and Pusha T, among others.
In the years since Virginia Rap duo the Clipse broke up, brothers No Malice and Pusha T have not made many appearances in the booth together, but as Push shared in a recent documentary, there has been no love lost between them. No Malice (fka Malice) embarked onto a life journey centered on his faith, which he documented in his 2011 book Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind and Naked as well as his 2013 solo debut Hear Ye Him.
Since then, he has maintained a low profile musically, even admitting to Billboard that he’s “definitely out of the loop” when it comes to today’s Hip-Hop. However, he is not short on things to say and projects to promote, including a new documentary and another solo LP (and a hint to a possible Clipse reunion). In an interview with Billboard‘s Eric Diep, No Malice (born Gene Thornton) goes in-depth about his creative mindset, his artistic goals, and how his spiritual development led him to where he is now.
His film – The End of Malice – is a visual adaptation of those aspects of his life and, as Diep writes, will go ” deeper into crucial life moments and his discovery of God with additional commentary from Pharrell and his brother Pusha T.” Airing March 27 on Revolt TV, it will stand on its own as a body of work but is “all a warm-up” to his new album, titled Let The Dead Bury The Dead.
