During an interview with Vulture, Pusha T states that he wasn’t so sure initially that the collaboration would happen, but after the process was over it showed them how much they truly missed rapping by each other’s side. “I’m the younger brother, man. I mean, I’m happier than — I can’t even express it,” “I can’t speak for him, but I do think a lot of it had to do with feeling like he should be more present in everything that I had going on musically in the past couple of years. There’s nothing like having a true warrior by your side.” “The whole theme of the Jesus Is King album totally speaks to where my brother is, Him and Kanye definitely bonded, probably way more than me and Ye bonded in the creation of this.”
“Everybody’s saying that’s the only one [album] that No Malice would rap on. It was just beautiful. They were out here [in Wyoming] working on the album just five months ago,” Kanye said during his interview with Zane Lowe, But Pusha T said that when he was told the subject matter, he almost backed out until No Malice decided to help. “I remember sayin’ I wasn’t even gonna rap. I didn’t know how to rap for God, So I remember No Malice being like, “I’ma write you a rap for this. You gon’ rap on this. This is such a win for the kingdom.”
Pusha T is more than willing to participate in a Clipse reunion. During an interview with Beats 1 Radio’s Zane Lowe, the veteran MC made it clear that he’s down to work with his brother No Malice again. “Keep hope alive, Clipse fans. I’m forever with it,” Pusha T said. “Everybody knows I’m with it, it’s just about getting him on the same page… the chemistry’s still there, the key players are still there.” Pusha T’s words are good news for Clipse fans following previous hints at possible reunion. Back in November, Pusha T and No Malice participated in an interview for the 10th anniversary of their album Hell Hath No Fury.
During the conversation, both men sounded open to creating a new album. While a new Clipse album is still a dream at this point, Pusha T is hard at work on his next solo LP. The President of G.O.O.D. Music also spoke to Lowe about his upcoming project King Push, which is expected to drop later this year. “The King Push album is something that’s forever evolving,” he said. “That’s what I do. Definitely this year. I’m in Atlanta right now working on it. I’m on my way to LA tomorrow. I’m hopscotching around the world getting this together.”
The brothers from Virginia sit down for a chat about the dark period that was their sophomore album. Pusha T, real name Terrence Thornton, knows exactly where Hell Hath No Fury ranks in his mind. “We had the album of the year,” Pusha says. “It was a landslide. It was too vivid. The realest hip-hop album ever made.” Coming off the success of their debut studio album Lord Willin’ in 2002, Pusha and his brother Malice (real name Gene Thornton Jr., who changed his name to No Malice in 2012) got tangled up in the politics of the music industry.
Arista Records, which released their debut album, dissolved into Jive, and the label prioritized other music acts over them, eventually forcing the duo to request a release from their contract. A lawsuit was filed by the brothers that was eventually settled in 2006. In November of that year, after several mixtape projects in between, Hell Hath No Fury was finally released through the group’s own label Re-Up Records, along with Jive.
