Watch "End of Malice," the new documentary that sheds light upon No Malice's sudden departure from Clipse.
Last Sunday, Revolt premiered "End of Malice," the new documentary focusing on the transformation of No Malice since the end of Clipse, when he rapped as Malice next to his brother Pusha T. The whole thing is now available to stream, and it provides an inside look at a fascinating story that hasn't received its due coverage until now.
"If all I talk about is coke / Let that tell you something." Those words appear on screen, and thus begins the opening credits, backed by Malice's incredibly poetic spoken word outro on the track "I'm Not You," off Clipse's debut album, Lord Willin', released in 2002. One immediately remembers how haunting this music was in its heyday, spelling out all of the evils inherent in the art of drug dealing in ruthless detail.
The film goes on to explore the 360° turn Gene Thorton has made since the duo's last album, 2009's Til the Casket Drops, embracing the word of God and adding the word "No" in front of his rapping alias. He's remained active in the rap game, though he's let go of much of his mainstream success, unlike his brother, who has since taken over for Kanye West as the president of GOOD Music.
"End of Malice" ventures deep within No Malice's psyche to explain the reasons behind his unexpected path toward spiritual healing, a journey that has seen its fair share of struggle.
