When’s the last time you got tested, for anything? With the audio book of Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind & Naked set to drop in October, Malice releases “Pray,” the first of a new series of vignettes. Gotta respect a brother with a message. Waiting on that Long Live the Cane (Re-Up Gang), which he speak on briefly in the Fuse TV vid below. [H/T Mikey Fresh via MissInfo.tv]
Pusha T’s Fear Of God mixtape that everyone, with taste, has been waiting on, is finally here. [Spotted 1st at Karen Civil]
Below, his older brother Malice’s latest vignette. I do miss the Re-Up Gang, though.
Above, Malice gets his Tony Hawk on in Vignette #4 of his ongoing series. Below, in Vignette #3 aka “Am I My Brother’s Keeper,” he emphatically kicks, “Just remember we Batman, we ain’t nobody’s Robin,” towardes who we can safely assume is Pusha T. Before you conspiracy theorists start crying foul, Big Bro also raps, “All I do is applaud him, all I have for him is love/I’d be the mascot if ever push came to shove.”

Finally a video for “Life Change” from the Clipse’s Til The Casket Drops album. About
Malice’s vlogs are profound. Jay-Z’s Decoded is getting a lot of duly deserved accolades, but Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind, and Naked, whenever it drops, looks to be a worthy read, too. Excerpt #2, detailing a run in with a repo man, depreciating car values and bad credit, above. Excerpt #3, a primer on the “furnace of affliction,” below.
Malice of the Clipse—the Thornton brother not signed with G.O.O.D. Music, but just as nice—is releasing a memoir called Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind and Naked (see Revelation 3:17). Malice’s vlogs always entertain and in the powerful entry above he reads an excerpt from his tell all, due in stores…soon. [Hat tip to Karen Civil]
“Napa Valley vintage my flow is fermented.”—Malice
“Freedom,” produced by Sean C & LV, off that Til the Casket Drops album that needs to be in your collection. Malice definitely stepped up his rap lyricist rank this go ’round. [Nod: The Rap Up]
“BAPE definitely helped put us in a lane and in a light and I think we did a lot for that company too…We going to the show and we got on the exclusive s**t we just got in the mail and the fans be like, “Oh s**t!” This is before I’m really Hypebeasting and shit. I’m just like, “Nah, Nigo just threw this s*** over here.” –Pusha T
So today is the day Asher Roth drops and the Bawse hits stores tomorrow. All good but at noon I will be checking for this new record (“Kinda Like A Big Deal”) by the Brothers Thornton. It’s supposed to be released 4/20 at noon via their Play Cloths blog. They got artist KAWS on the cover art and sneaker hawker Kanye West in the mix. New music from Malice and Pusha T soothes the soul I say. Suddenly I got the urge for a Coke… [Spotted at Hypebeast]
