The O.D.: A Mixtape Daily Exclusive
It’s time to complete our trilogy. We started with the story of how the Clipse and/or Pusha T solo project might be on Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label . On Wednesday, the Clipse’s main producer, Pharrell Williams, told us he fully stands behind his onetime Star Trak signees aligning with ’Ye.
Now, the older member of the duo, Malice, said he can’t really speak on any deals with Kanye, but he did say that another group album is on hold until baby bro gets his solo project off.
“The next Clipse [album], we’re gonna let Push do his thing right now,” Malice said. “I’mma be there to support him. Of course, you’re gonna get verses from me. I can’t say right now, but it’s coming.”
Malice is concentrating on being an author and filmmaker. He has a book and movie coming called “Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind and Naked” and a reality show as well.
“It’s my journey on getting this book out and the blogs we be shooting, which you can check out on MaliceOfTheClipse.com,” he said of the show.
“The book is entitled ’Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind and Naked,’ ” Mal continued. “What I’m doing is, I’m showing you the things that the Clipse have been through in the record industry, things that have been going on with my family, things between me, Pharrell, my brother. Giving y’all a real in-depth look behind the scenes. I’m sure it’s something everybody wanna know about, and it’s good for anybody who’s aspiring to be in this profession. It’s crazy.”
Malice said he’s encouraged by his peers, such as 50 Cent, Styles P and the RZA, who have all been able to come out with literary projects.
“It’s definitely inspirational to see them guys put out a book,” Malice said. “I’m trying to follow in those footsteps. The music industry, you have to do some of everything and get into other channels. It’s a lot of different avenues to get into. We’re just trying to explore them all, as well as Play Cloths , the solo projects and Re-Up Gang records, Re-Up Gang films. We’re just trying to put a cap on everything.”
