CLIPSE ARE BACK, KIND OF
Hip-hop fans are rejoicing at the news of The Clipse reuniting for a show at Hyde Park Summerfest in Chicago on June 17 and 18. The announcement comes as a surprise, as the rap duo had previously taken a hiatus from their music careers to pursue other endeavors.
The Clipse, comprised of brothers Malice and Pusha T, rose to fame in the early 2000s with their unique blend of street-savvy rhymes and smooth, soulful beats. Their debut album, “Lord Willin’,” was a critical and commercial success, spawning hit singles like “Grindin'” and “When the Last Time.”
After several more successful albums, the group took a hiatus in 2010 to focus on individual projects. Pusha T went on to achieve great success as a solo artist, collaborating with the likes of Kanye West and releasing critically acclaimed albums like “My Name is My Name” and “Daytona.” Malice, on the other hand, turned his attention to his Christian faith and released a memoir, “Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind and Naked,” in 2011.
Despite their diverging paths, the two brothers never ruled out the possibility of reuniting in the future. In fact, they briefly came together at the 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards for a medley of their classic hits.
Now, fans will have the opportunity to see The Clipse perform together once again at Hyde Park Summerfest in Chicago. This is sure to be a memorable event, with the duo bringing their signature style and energy to the stage.
Tickets for Hyde Park Summerfest are available now, so don’t miss your chance to see The Clipse reunite for this special occasion. This is a momentous occasion for hip-hop fans, and it’s sure to be a show that won’t soon be forgotten.
