UPDATE: Pusha-T recently spoke with Vulture about reuniting with his older brother No Malice.

In the interview, Pusha says he believes his brother and Kanye bonded during the album’s creation.

“I can’t speak for him,” he said of No Malice’s decision to work with Kanye, “but I do think a lot of it had to do with feeling like he should be more present in everything that I had going on musically in the past couple of years,” he said. “There’s nothing like having a true warrior by your side.”

The Virginia MCs hadn’t been featured on an official track together since 2013.

Kanye West’s long-awaited Jesus is King is finally here.

With it, comes the rap world’s most anticipated track: “Use This Gospel,” which features both members of the Clipse, Pusha-T and No Malice. The Thornton brothers hadn’t recorded an official release as The Clipse since 2009’s Till the Casket Drops. Their last appearance together came on No Malice’s first solo album, 2013’s Hear Ye Him.
