Gene Elliott Thornton Jr., better known by his stage name No Malice has recently set down with XXL magazine for an interview where he details losing himself in the business and finding himself again in God in the doc, which premieres on Revolt TV Easter Sunday (March 27). Co-produced by Second Films and Ditoremayo, The End of Malice features interviews with Pharrell Williams and Pusha T, among others. He also talked about his favorite lyricists:
Who do you appreciate as a lyricist?
“Oh man, I appreciate Pusha lyrically. And when I say lyrically I mean the art form of hip-hop. I appreciate Drake. I like real MCs. I like Jadakiss. I like Eminem. Everybody talk about “top five,” when they going to realize it ain’t not top five without Eminem. You know what I’m saying? It’s only Eminem. Just guys that still have a love for it. Lyrically I like Kanye, I like Jay Z. I just like the art form, never mind content. I just like lyric driven hip-hop. The cadence of it, the way it makes you feel, the thought process, the analogies.”
