The Clipse Talk About Splitting Up On CNN Documentary [VIDEO]

Ever since word spread that the Clipse would no longer be making music together, due to a spiritual conversion from older brother Malice, hip-hop fans were shocked, especially since the split was so abrupt.

And as younger sibling Pusha T‘s solo career took off — thanks to Kanye West and G.O.O.D. Music — Malice started talking to the press about not wanting to spit coke raps anymore, and it seemed like the Clipse would never get back together.

On Thursday (May 15), CNN’s Bill Weir aired a mini-documentary on the Virginia Beach, Va. duo titled ‘My Brother’s Keeper,’ where the two brothers spoke in detail about their past drug dealing history, and Malice’s eventual decision to call it quits.

“I was Porsche, no shirt, big chain, pulling up at the light, you know, you didn’t want your girl looking over at me at the light, you didn’t want that,” detailed the ‘Hear Ye Him’ creator. “And that’s what people saw. But at the end of the day, I personally felt misery.”

And how did Pusha feel about his older brother walking away from the group? He said he wasn’t sure if it was permanent or not, until Malice turned down a string of shows that was offered to them once the 10th anniversary of their classic album ‘Lord Willin’ hit.

“I want to say somewhere from 25 to 30 shows that people who wanted us to do it, to come to a city to perform the whole album in its entirety” explained the ‘Numbers On The Boards’ spitter. And that’s when Pusha said he knew his brother’s conversion was real.

The documentary also shows what the Thornton brothers did after the split.

Pusha T of course just released a successful solo album in ‘My Name Is My Name,’ and he’s currently involved in a slew of businesses. And Malice continues to make gospel-inspired music, although he admits the crowds and the money are much smaller these days.
