Pusha T says that he hates listening to Clipse’s final album, “Til the Casket Drops.”
“I hate it. I hate it. And when a song comes on, like ‘I’m Good,’ man, this was a little bit of a bop. Hate it,” he said.

He continued: “Soon as I find myself bopping a little bit too much — ah, damn. And there’s another thing. Bro, Malice is telling you the whole time, he’s leaving. You hear it the whole way through the album. … The transition is happening, the album’s out, I’m touring and he comes and brings me a book and says, ‘Man, you probably should go read my book. But I think you should just go solo because I don’t want to do this.'”
Later in the interview, Pusha T also discussed the making of Lord Willin’, Clipse’s 2002 breakthrough album.
“Man, I created most of Lord Willin’ at Babyface’s house,” he explained. “We were creating Lord Willin’ and Babyface wanted to work with the Neptunes. And they told him, no, they couldn’t work because they were finishing our album. And he was like, ‘No, no, no, no, no. I’m going to pay [recording costs] for the [Clipse] album. So I’ll pay for the Clipse to come. I’m going to fly you guys out here.’ … And it was Babyface. He got whatever type of compound he got. But Babyface walked around barefoot the whole time. I’m doing my street raps, he’s somewhere barefoot, beads and a vest with a guitar.”
Push’s newest comments on his work with Clipse come as fans have gained hope for a reunion between Push and No Malice. The two collaborated together on Nigo’s I Know Nigo! as well as Pusha T’s new album, It’s Almost Dry.
