The Clipse have delivered numerous gritty tracks about the drug trade for well over a decade. For many, it was tough to see Pusha T without Malice, as he started his solo career. During a late 2011 interview, Malice revealed he urged Pusha T to launch his solo career, which led to him being signed by Kanye West to G.O.O.D. Music.
Pusha T has excelled as a solo artist, as his Fear of God mixtape was met with critical acclaim. During his interview, Malice said 2012 would see him return with a new name. Months later, No Malice has entered the game with a new focus on God. The Clipse always had a respect for religion, but the duo were far from what many consider “saved.”
Immediately, Pusha T established himself as one of the bad boys of hip hop. While Pusha T filled the thuggish lane, many were criticizing Drake for being “soft.” Pusha T released a freestyle many felt was aimed at Drake. Both rappers stated they do not have problems with each other, but Drake openly battled with another G.O.O.D. Music alum, Common.
Regardless of what is going on, Pusha T’s older brother, No Malice, has gotten into the frenzy. No Malice stated, during his BET interview, he wants Pusha T to stop picking on Drake because he likes Drake.
