Til The Casket Drops - Interview with Malice of the Clipse

It’s been quite a decade for Clipse.

After “Grindin’” onto the Hip Hop landscape in 2001 with debut album, Lord Willin, withstanding a vicious label dispute with Jive Records to drop the seminal LP, Hell Hath No Fury, and solidifying their lyrical reputation with 2009’s Til The Casket Drops — the brothers Thornton (Malice and Pusha T) have compiled one of rap’s most respected resumes. Clipse’s largely cocaine laced content embodies the spirit of Scarface and Raekwon, impressing with imagery and lyrical dexterity, always providing consequence to the context. As Malice states in this interview, their “credentials are good.”

BrooklynBodega.com caught up with Malice following Clipse’s chest thumping performance at NYC’s Highline Ballroom. Read on as we discuss the duo’s southern roots, their rumored association with Roc Nation, passport holders, and upcoming solo albums for Malice and Pusha T.
