The Clipse, Hell Hath No Fury (2006)
Label: Re-Up/Star Trak/Jive
Pusha T: “Hell Hath No Fury is the realest album ever. It’s the darkest, best record, hands down. The whole space and time, I always tell people that album will never be recreated.
“I don’t think I’ll ever even be in that state of my life again to ever even write records like that. If I am, you will be visiting me in jail. [Laughs] If not that, you’ll be hearing about label drama number 99,000 from me.
I personally would not have made ‘Young Boy’ or ‘Ma, I Don’t Love Her.’ I hate playing ‘When The Last Time.’ I’ll never perform it ever in my life. I hate it, and I don’t feel that way with any of the Hell Hath No Fury records.
“It just spoke the truest of the truest shit. It was a dark time but it made for the best music. There’s no record better than ‘Keys Open Doors.’ There isn’t a better record than ‘Mama I’m So Sorry,’ or ‘Ride Around Shining.’
“The soundtrack to that album are just the greatest beats. Nothing is fucking with those beats. That was the best rendition of mixing Goodfellas, The Godfather, King Of New York, all of the gangsterest of movies and putting them into an album.
“Cohesively, it’s a better album than Lord Willin’. I didn’t compromise anything. Not on one record do I feel I compromised. I personally would not have made ‘Young Boy’ or ‘Ma, I Don’t Love Her.’ I hate playing ‘When The Last Time.’ I’ll never perform it ever in my life. I hate it, and I don’t feel that way with any of the Hell Hath No Fury records.
“I still want to do a tour just performing all of the Hell Hath No Fury records. Right before me and Malice put out another album we’re going to do a Hell Hath No Fury show.
“Hell Hath No Fury was better than [Jay-Z’s] Kingdom Come. Yes it was. By far. It came out same time, we won.”
