Summer 2022 was many festivals' first return since the pandemic's outbreak, and rap duo Clipse had to go big. Pusha T and his brother No Malice performed at Pharrell's Something In The Water festival in June, marking Clipse's first time on stage together in almost a decade. A year later, they’re set to reunite once again for another special moment in summer of 2023.
The Mr. Me Too MCs have been named the headlining act for the 2023 Hyde Park Summer Fest, which will take place in Chicago's Midway Plaza Park. The event will take place on June 17th and 18th and will feature notable artistes such as 2 Chainz, Robert Glasper, Tobe Nwinge, and Uncle Waffles. It will also commemorate the 50th anniversary of Hip hop with a medley performance by Chicago locals Vic Mensa, Twista, Shawnna, Do Or Die, Crucial Conflict and more to be revealed.
Pusha T and No Malice collaborated on two occasions in 2022 to perform some of Clipse's best tunes. They followed up Something In the Water with a surprise appearance at the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards in September, performing Grindin', their smash hit. Their Summer Fest appearance in 2023 will be their first complete set since 2010.
While the real-life siblings have reunited for one-off reunion gigs, no plans for a full-scale resuscitation of Clipse have been announced. At a ComplexCon 2022 panel marking the 20th anniversary of their debut record Lord Willin', the two rappers reflected on their careers. Pusha T told the outlet in January 2023 that he wants his brother, No Malice, to be a part of a Clipse reunion. “I’m not sure, but I’m pressing it. I’m pressing it,” he said. “A lot of people think that I don’t be pressing the issue. But I really do.”
