It’s been over three years since the Clipse released their last album, Til The Casket Drops. The older of the Virginia rhyming brothers, No Malice, has revealed that a new projects is definitely in the works, but some details needs to be solidified first. The rapper formerly known as Malice spoke with Billboard about his brother Pusha T and their music plans for the near future, including a Clipse album thought to be titled As God As My Witness. ”It’s definitely [in] beginning stages, but Pusha and I have some serious things that we’re talking about and coming to agreement on,” said No Malice. “It’s a fitting title because pretty much everything that seems to be coming out has a religious theme… What I want the people to know is that, for me, this is not ‘cool’ — this is not a trend. This is the working power of Jesus in my life.” In June, No Malice plans to release his solo album, titled Hear Ye Him, via Re-Up Gangs. Though he has been more vocal about his God-fearing way of life recently, it has always been a part of his music, thus naturally creeping into Clipse’s, too. ”Here Ye Him is basically my take, my new direction,” explained No Malice. “A lot of people wonder if it was going to be gospel or Christian rap. I don’t really know what you would call this, but if you think anything’s soft about it, you’re going to have to wake up because I really believe there’s nothing touching this. It’s very real.” As for G.O.O.D. Music‘s Pusha T, his new album, My Name Is My Name, is also due out later this year. Let us know whether or not you’re looking forward to hearing No Malice’s new album in the comments.
Pitchfork TV returns with another installment of their very popular FRAMES series. This time, the publication catches up with Gary, IN’s own, Freddie Gibbs. Speaking of Gary, Gibbs tells the story of meeting the most famous person to ever come out of the small midwest city, Michael Jackson. “You would’ve thought Jesus came back. That was a real symbol of hope, just for that ni**a to come back because he hasn’t been back for a while. Gary ain’t got enough money to sing a note on the mic,” Gangsta Gibbs explained in the latest episode of FRAMES. “Mike came through the motherf**king KFC, dog. Bought all the honey barbecue wings. All the God damn original,” Gibbs says laughing. “He went through the drive through, ni**a, all you saw was him in the limo and you saw the God damn shiny glove stick his hand out the window and was waving at ni**as and s**t.” The story gets funnier as Gibbs, seemingly high as a kite, tells the website what the “King Of Pop” did once he received the chicken. Check out the latest episode of FRAMES below.
Chief Keef is going to be re-born a new person–as soon as he gets out of jail. The young rapper will get baptized upon the completion of his stint in custody for parole violation. Keef allegedly met with Chicago reverend Corey Brooks to discuss plans for a baptism. Brooks leads the New Beginnings Church in the city’s Woodlawn neighborhood, and came to the 17-year-old’s defense saying that he’s not “a bad kid,” but misunderstood. “I think people forget he is 17 years old,” Rev. Brooks said. “He is an entertainer, that is how he sees himself. But at the same time, he has a God-consciousness. He is not some terror who is wreaking havoc.” Since dropping his Internet hit “I Don’t Like,” Keef has found himself at the center of legal controversy. He’s been blasted for glorifying violence, his gang affiliation, and has had a fair share of issues with other rappers, including one aspiring rhymer, Joseph “Lil JoJo” Coleman, who was murdered after arguing with Keef and his crew. With an opportunity to put the bad press behind him, being in custody has given the young father time to think. “I got a message from him that he’s had a wake-up call,” said his manager, Rovan “Dro” Manuel. “I think he’s gonna come out a different person. I think he’s gonna come out with some new music, a new attitude…he’s gonna get out and do some shows, and hopefully go up the charts.” Keef is set for release March 14.
Singer, songwriter, and sex promoter Kandi Burruss (pictured), who also co-stars on the hit Bravo reality TV show “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” is under fire for releasing her new gospel song, “Stay Prayed Up,” with famed pastor and gospel singer Marvin Sapp, reports the Christian Post.
Apparently, Burruss, who also has a sex toy line and hosts a late-night, web-based, sexually explicit talk show, “Kandi Koated Nights,” is being harshly criticized by those who feel that she is not righteous enough to sing gospel. Critics took to Burruss’ Webstagram account to tell her exactly what they think of her sashaying in to the gospel circuit when she appears to be living a life that is seemingly not righteous enough for them:
msaeli @kandiburruss great song, but I’m just curious, why do you make a song about staying prayed up while you wallow in sin? You’re living unmarried with your boyfriend (man)? You sell naughty Bedroom Kandi. Maybe that’s why you need to stay prayed up? Before everyone beats me up with their words, I want you to know I love you and your music, but this song is contradictory to your current lifestyle. Not sure if you’re Christian, but if so, be an example to your daughter Only! Make sure she knows her worth and understand her value, so easy she’ll receive what God has for her. If you don’t mind, some reading for you (Bible: Romans 6, 1Corinthians 7, Thessalonians 4:25 to end) God bless

Over the weekend the estranged brother of boxing legend Muhammed Ali told a London periodical that the champ was “near death.” His brother Rahman Ali was quoted saying, “My brother can’t speak. He doesn’t recognize me. He’s in a bad way. He’s very sick. It could be months, it could be days. I don’t know if he’ll last the summer. He’s in God’s hands. We hope he gently passes away.” However, those closest to Ali say that his brother is wrong and that Ali was home watching football when reports surfaced of his imminent death. The 71-year-old Ali suffers from Parkinson’s disease but is thankfully not critically ill. This photo released by his spokesman Bob Gunnell shows Ali dressed in Raven’s gear rooting for the now Super Bowl champions.
