VIBE To Host 'The End of Malice' Movie Screening In NYC

VIBE's Mikey Fresh will also host a live Q&A with No Malice. 

NEW YORK, N.Y. – VIBE and Second Films are partnering to host a special preview screening of “The End of Malice,” a new film that shares the untold story of hip-hop star and former Clipse member Gene Thornton’s journey from “Malice” to “No Malice,” at AMC Loews 19th St. East 6 on March 2, 2016.

“The End of Malice” addresses the infatuation and obsession with rap and drug culture that is systemic in inner cities and urban communities. The screening will help facilitate conversations around these matters in order to shed light on the mentality of those who are convinced that drugs and hip-hop are the only viable paths to success in life.

Following the event, attendees will have the opportunity to take part in a Q&A and meet-and-greet session with No Malice and VIBE's senior music editor, Mikey Fresh.

“I've followed the Clipse career since day,” said VIBE's Mikey Fresh. “There just isn't a group that has more of a true-to-life story than No Malice and Pusha T.”

Featuring insightful commentary from Malice’s brother and fellow Clipse member, Pusha T, as well as his close friend, Pharrell Williams, “The End of Malice” is a 40-minute intoxicating, first-person narrative of an extraordinary artist confronting the dualities of fame and family, success in the dope game, and the demanding world of mainstream music.

In 2002, the brother duo Clipse dropped like a bomb on the music scene, reverberating out of Virginia Beach with an undeniable swagger as they cleverly spit rhymes about the dope game over hard-hitting beats from The Neptunes’ super producers Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo. The Thorntons quickly rose to prominent fame as a hip-hop subgenre was born — coke-rap — and brothers Malice and Pusha T were the centerpieces in a storm of sudden stardom.

“There’s no college course for dealing with fame and success,” said Pharrell in “The End of Malice.” “But when you’re given a cocktail like that … you’re supposed to sip slow.”

But despite the tremendous success Malice achieved, he was left questioning the significance and value of his pursuits in the music industry. Just as the group reached the pinnacle of success in 2010, a breaking point occurred and Malice chose to leave it all, professionally separating from his brother to begin a new chapter in his music and forever be known as “No Malice.”

“I don’t regret the music or the catalog of my group, but that’s only because it has given me a place to not only tell part of the truth but to tell the entire story,” said No Malice.

Charlamagne Tha God Makes Kevin Hunter "Donkey Of The Day"

Charlamagne Tha God let the choppa fly Wednesday morning (April 16) when he crowned Kevin Hunter, Wendy Williams' soon to be ex-husband and manager "Donkey of The Day."

The Power 105.1 host and Hunter were once comrades, but their friendship ended when Hunter allegedly grew irate Charlamagne played matchmaker with his longtime friend Wax and his then-mistress now the mother of his newborn daughter, Sharina Hudson.

"Think about that. Big grown-ass married negro from Brownsville, Brooklyn, supposed to be some thorough-ass hood dude upset because he thinks I'm trying to hook his side chick up with my homeboy. Does that not make him a Grade A sucker?" Charlamagne questioned.

The two-time bestselling author was once Williams' protege and in his nearly 13 minute-rant against Hunter, he expressed empathy for the talk-show host. "The reason why I've never had smoke for Wendy is that number one: I feel sorry for her. She was an abused woman on various levels," Charlamagne said.

Charlemagne spoke about the several attempts Hunter allegedly made to destroy his career, including promoting last year's narrative he supposedly raped a woman in South Carolin. The 2001 criminal sexual conduct charge was later dismissed after the radio host provided a DNA sample.

"There are only two people on this planet that I don't give a damn about, and Kevin Hunter is one of them."

Charlamagne was in rare petty form while delivering his stinging rant, and said his divorce after 21 years of marriage is the universe's response to his behavior.

"Kevin you so busy trying to curse others you end up cursing yourself. Did you really think you could go around treating people the way you treat them and not suffer any consequence from the universe all these years? The sad part is you treat everybody like doo-doo, but the one person you treat like doo-doo that you should never treat like doo-doo is your soon-to-be ex-wife.

"Bro, you are nothing without her."

After also crowning Hunter Doo-Doo Brown, Charlamagne predicted all that he dished out to Wendy would come back via Sharina Hudson.

"It's only a matter of time before Sharina leaves you. Don't think she's staying around. Whatever you get from Wendy, Sharina is going to get a bunch of that from child support. Oh, wait for it. It's coming. The same thing you did to Wendy, Sharina's going to do to you with another man. Guaranteed."

On March 31st, the Grammy-nominated rapper was gunned down outside of his Marathon Clothing store in South Los Angeles. Reportedly, the 33-year-old left his home sans security to greet a friend just released from prison who served 20 years. The Victory Lap artist was planning to gift him with clothes.

Hussle's untimely death has sent shockwaves throughout the hip-hop and sports community, prompting fellow artists and athletes to vocally express their sadness and condolences, chief among them being Barack Obama who wrote a letter to Hussle's family that was read during the service.

Following the memorial service, a procession will pass by his Marathon Clothing store and end at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills where Hussle, real name Ermias Joseph Asghedom, will be laid to rest.
