Rappers often refer to themselves as “writers” (as do taggers), but some also have written books. I can think of Chuck D, DMC, Buckshot of BlackMoon, Jay-Z, to name a few. Well, add Malice of The Clipse to that list. This is not an advice book, or a philosophy, it’s an auto-biographical excerpt of the MC’s life. Malice, born Gene Elliot Thornton Jr., gives you a look into his personal life, his beliefs, his struggles with drugs and depression and how faith in God helped him see his way through personal crisis.
I haven’t read the book yet, only listened to some excerpts, but when I do I will write an exclusive review for MCMIreport.com. I will say that this is the illest series of vignettes marketing the book. Check ’em out. You don’t have to watch in order. Each one has nothing to do with the other and you’re not really going to get any info, but you will be left with images ingrained into your memory, questions that need answering and a visual texture of what Malice may have in store for you in the book. If that doesn’t make you buy it, I don’t know what will, but I’ll be happy to let you know if its a good read and
lend rent you my copy when I’m done. (Sold, not told, snitches, haha).
More videos after the jump.
