Pusha T is shutting down rumors about a possible Clipse album being released this year.
An Instagram account under the name @reupgangrecords, posted a throwback picture of Gene “No Malice” Thornton and Terrence “Pusha T” Thornton and captioned the photo, “NEW YEAR. NEW CLIPSE ALBUM. 2020 PYREX VISION #reupgang #theclipse #2020.” In the comment section, Pusha replied, “Wishful thinking … but see y’all at Something In The Water for sure.”
During a 2014 interview with CNN, Pusha explained how he found out his brother decided to leave the group and dedicate his life to Jesus.
“I came to him and I was like, ‘Man, I got these ideas,’” he said. “‘I got these beats I want you to check out.’ He was like, ‘I’m not doing another Clipse album right now.’ Wow. Now that was hard. That was hard.”
No Malice quit the secular music and decided to give his life to Christ. In 2016, he told Billboard that he hasn’t completely counted out a potential Clipse reunion.
“I’ma tell you that I learned to never say never, and I don’t shut the door on anything. I really don’t. In fact, I would like to see Clipse do it,” he said. “But I just do things differently. When the people want Clipse, they want Clipse. They want what they know about the Clipse. I’m not trying to tamper with that brand or try to change it into something different. But what I actually know in my heart are parts. I’ve said it before, my brother and I would definitely make clown soup out of all these MCs. Now that much I know.”
The duo has not released an album since 2009’s Til The Casket Drops. They recently reunited at one of Kanye West’s sunday Service events to perform “Use This Gospel.” They have also been listed as an act for this year’s Something In The Water festival in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
