Original Music Inspired By New Documentary on the Life of Former Clipse Member No Malice to Release 3/25
‘Movin’ Weight’ Available on iTunes Friday Prior to ‘The End of Malice’ REVOLT TV Premiere on March 27
DALLAS, March 24, 2016 – “Movin’ Weight,” the much-anticipated 10-track album inspired by the new film, “The End of Malice,” will release Friday, March 25 across all digital music platforms prior to the film’s worldwide premiere on REVOLT TV on March 27.
“Movin’ Weight” takes listeners on a journey through the lives of those who have first-hand experience with street life.
The album includes original tracks from Former Clipse member and hip-hop artist No Malice; Grammy award-winning songwriter and vocalist Crystal Nicole; Toronto-based hip-hop soul artist and songwriter Promise; singer/songwriter and producer Tony Ray; and new up-and-coming emcees Rod T, RasRok and MD Uno.
“Movin’ Weight” features sounds and rhythms faithful to the origins of the hip-hop genre, while also infusing soulful harmonies and melodies that embody the struggles of the inner city. Using touches of jazz and R&B, each song tells part of a larger story — a story that begins with the idea of movin’ weight, but ends with deeper spiritual truths about the condition of the soul.
“This is not just an album, it’s an experience in storytelling,” said Executive Producer Brandon C. Ricks. “’Movin weight’ is a central theme in the context of rap music and inner-city street culture. It is our goal that this album will move listeners through a progression from understanding the basic meaning of ‘movin’ weight’ to recognizing a greater truth about the moving of the weights that bind the hearts and minds of those trapped in destructive lifestyles.”
Ricks serves as executive producer on “Movin’ Weight” alongside composers and producers Christopher “O.Z.” Billik, Lord Quest, Tony Ray and Jamaal Pompey.
“Movin Weight” is available through iTunes, Google Play and select streaming services. The album is inspired by “The End of Malice,” a 40-minute intoxicating, first-person narrative of the life of No Malice. The film masterfully tells the story of an extraordinary artist confronting the dualities of fame and family, success in the dope game, and the demanding world of mainstream music.
Featuring commentary from No Malice’s brother and fellow Clipse member, Pusha T, as well as his close friend, Pharrell Williams, “The End of Malice” gives never-before-seen insight into Clipse’s successful rise as pioneers of the hip-hop subgenre, coke-rap, and No Malice’s abrupt departure from it all that still has fans begging for more.
“The End of Malice” premieres on REVOLT TV on Sunday, March 27 at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT.
