The Clipse


In 2002, the rap duo Clipse dropped like a bomb on the music scene, reverberating out of Virginia Beach with an undeniable swagger as they cleverly spit rhymes about the dope game over hard-hitting beats from super producers Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo (The Neptunes). A hip-hop subgenre was born — coke-rap — and brothers Malice and Pusha T were the centerpieces in a storm of sudden stardom. But despite the tremendous success Malice achieved, he was left questioning the significance and value of his pursuits in the music industry.

I was always frustrated, always angry and I didn’t know why. If I’d never had money I would have thought my anger stemmed from being broke. But now I had money and tons of it and still was not fulfilled. I had a deep void in my life.

The Breaking Point


Throughout the next decade the Thornton brothers made music that would forever influence a generation of hip-hop fans. But Gene descended deeper into guilt and personal turmoil. Finally, there was a breaking point: A multi-million dollar drug bust took down his manager and several members of his inner circle. That’s when he chose to turn away from the rap game and start a journey of spiritual renewal.

I’m not talking about what I’ve been talking about anymore. I’m not doing it anymore!

Even the most saved and sanctified person lives in a secular world. It’s what you have on the inside that’s supposed to ground you, and that’s being connected and spiritually connected to the father
