Pusha T on New Clipse Music: 'We Definitely Have Been Messing Around With a Few Ideas'

Pusha T recently talked about the impact of his solo albums and the long rumored whispers that a new Clipse album may be in the works.

In an interview with GQ, he spoke about living up to the expectations set as the Clipse (alongside his brother No Malice) and how his solo albums have been received in comparison.

“Just to be all the way honest, ever since I went solo, I heard the cries from the fans of what they were missing from the Clipse in my solo albums,” he said. “And I’ve tried to mimic and infuse, and tried to cater at some points, but it’s never enough. And I had to come to terms with that. He actually brings a level of introspection that’s like, man, I can’t dial into it and do it the way the people and the fans want to hear it. And I’ve taken that L.”

He acknowledged that it's been a challenge to match the same exact vibe that he delivered as part of the Clipse.

“I’m just saying it’s an L because I’ve tried, because I know the issue and know that I couldn’t honestly check that box off. The people have already sipped the Kool-Aid, right? They already know how it’s made," he said. “They already understand the amount of sugar that’s in it. It doesn’t taste the same when I make it, and they know that. So I couldn’t necessarily always check that box off and I was trying to, no lie.”

He also talked about the possibility of new Clipse music, saying they've been back in the studio, just not consistently.

“I wouldn’t say consistently, but we definitely have been messing around with a few ideas," he said. “I’ve been working on a couple different projects at one time, in between touring, and he’s definitely been around and been there to be a part of it. So I think he has been finding the fun in it as well. I don’t be pressing it, but it is always fun to watch him have that fun again. It has been a problem with me finishing my verse and then him finishing after me and me feeling like, ‘Hey man, this is not fair. Something has to give.’ I guess I haven’t heard that level of intellect and common sense in rap in a minute. So it’s a breath of fresh air.”
