Pusha T is a little over a month away from dropping his debut solo album, My Name is My Name, but Pharrell is confident that fans will be gifted with a Clipse reunion album in the near future, and he will certainly be on board to produce it when the time comes around.
“Oh they will,” Pharrell told MTV News matter-of-factly, when asked if he thought a Clipse album is on the horizon, going on to explain what his role in the project might be. “I’m gonna have to find an untapped zone and just present something different that people haven’t felt before.”
“I don’t know what the sounds would sound like, or what the vibes would be, but at that moment the arrow will present itself to me and I’ll just listen and follow it,” he added.
Pharrell initially helped Clipse rise to fame, with The Neptunes handling production on their full length project Exclusive Audio Footage and later signing them to his Star Trak Entertainment to release Lord Willin’, their first big commercial album. The duo also released Hell Hath No Fury and Til the Casket Drops before deciding to take a break to make solo albums. Pusha signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label in 2010, and on July 16, My Name is My Name is finally scheduled to hit stores.
Pharrell expressed his enthusiasm for both Pusha and No Malice’s current work. “[Pusha’s] ready for that and his brother No Malice — as he goes by these days — is definitely on a different page, but an enlightened page and I encourage people to check that project out and check out his book,” Pharrell said. “They’re just really talented guys and I’ve just been really fortunate to be able to work with them over all of these years and just watch them grow into not only the path that we set together but their own individual paths as well.”
