Clipse Member Gene ‘No Malice’ Thornton has come a long way from the days of grindin' and will chronicle his evolution in a new documentary “The End of Malice.” The documentary features Pharrell Williams and Pusha T.
To promote the doc, No Malice will traverse the nation in a 16-City preview tour. Touring cities include Evansville, Indiana; Louisville, Kentucky; St. Louis, Missouri; Chicago, Illinois; New Orleans, Louisiana; Memphis, Tennessee; Birmingham, Alabama; Atlanta, Georgia; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Newark, New Jersey; New York, New York; Virginia Beach, Virginia; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Dallas, Texas; Houston, Texas; and Los Angeles, California.
“The End of Malice” is a 40-minute first-person narrative of an individual wrought with conflicts ranging from fame, family,the drug game and mainstream music acceptance.
No Malice said he was always conflicted about the dualities of his life, but didn't quite realize how deep it was.
“I was always frustrated, always angry and I didn’t know why,” said No Malice. “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.”
Pusha and No Malice, together known as The Clipse, remain a popular staple in rap music
Pharrell, longtime collaborator and friend, offered words of wisdom in the documentary.
“There’s no college course for dealing with fame and success,” said Pharrell, “But when you’re given a cocktail like that … you’re supposed to sip slow.”
“The End of Malice” explores No Malice's departure from the game in 2010.
“I don’t regret the music or the catalog of my group, but that’s only because it has given me a place to not only tell part of the truth but to tell the entire story,” said No Malice.
“The End of Malice” is a collaboration of Second Films and Ditoremayo Entertainment and will receive its worldwide television premiere on REVOLT TV on Sunday, March 27, 2016.
