Default Clipse Speak Out Against Hip Hop

Clipse Says Music Industry Worse Than Drug Dealing: "No Morals"

Rap duo Clipse would rather make a return to drug-dealing than make another record because the industry "has no morals".

Brothers Pusha T and Malice, real names Terrence and Gene Thornton, used to sell crack cocaine on the streets of Virginia and use their experiences as inspiration on previous tracks.

But the duo claim they would prefer to return to their drug-dealing days than work in an industry "with no principles".

Younger brother Pusha T says, "I don't like hip-hop no more and I don't like the music business. No ethics, no code, no morals. It's worse than drug dealing. No one works on principles.

"At least in the crack trade, there's a code of honour. The music business is the worst. You turn into a number as soon as you sign the papers."

They make a good point but people will be outraged to hear this due to the fact they compared it to the crack game. I've sold plenty of **** and they're on point about the honour part mostly for the fact if you **** someone over you ain't gonna like the consequences.

That's weird. I alway thought that when you stop producing revenue in the drug game it's off with your head.

Thanks Terrence and Gene for your input against the record industry.

So selling drugs is a more morally correct employment than making records. GTFOH!!!! These guys are part of what's wrong with hip hop in the first place.
