No Malice & Ab-Liva - Smoke & Mirrors

Posted 3 years ago
Producer:
!llmind
Album:
Hear Ye Him

Though the brothers Thornton have been concentrating on their respective solo hustles of late, they still seem to be on a similar creative wavelength. As Pusha T prepares to drop a mixtape with the Old Testament-referencing title Wrath of Caine, Clipse partner-in-rhyme No Malice steps into the Booth with a Biblically-inspired single off his own forthcoming set. Smoke & Mirrors begins with the emcee reading from 1 Corinthians over a backdrop of haunting choral harmonies. Then !llmind‘s beat drops and the record begins in earnest, with Malice trading fire and brimstone-soaked verses with Re-Up Gang colleague Ab-Liva. In addition to appearing on the headliner’s Hear Ye Him LP, this cut is slated to be included on Liva’s The Truth Shall Set You Free LP. Keep it locked for details on both of these currently-unscheduled projects.
