Lecrae recently finished shooting a music video with No Malice of the Clipse for a new song on his upcoming album titled Gravity that also features Reach Records artist Tedashii.

The rapper also collaborated with the "Grindin'" creator on his mixtape Church Clothes for the song "Darkest Hour."

That song was the first time No Malice appeared on a record since the Clipse 2009 album Til The Casket Drops. His brother and partner-in-rhyme Pusha T is currently signed as a solo artist to Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music.

No Malice, formerly known as Malice, burst on the mainstream music scene with the Clipse back in 2002, and since that time has collaborated with artists such as Justin Timberlake, The Neptunes, and Birdman.

After the release of their third album in 2009, the group decided to pursue solo ventures. Following the decision, Malice released Wretched Pitiful, Poor, Blind & Naked, a book that speaks about his life struggles and his conversion to Christianity. He eventually changed his name to No Malice in order to remove the negative meaning from his original moniker.

The Clipse plan to release a new album sometime in the near future, but there has not been any official dates set.

Lecrae on the other hand has been quite busy promoting Church Clothes, a project he hopes will introduce him to an entirely new audience.

The rapper also will embark on the 30-city Unashamed Tour 2012: Come Alive in the fall of this year with his labelmates Andy Mineo, Tedashii, KB, and PRO.

The tour begins on Oct. 4 in Pittsburgh, Penn. It will hit other major cities such as Dallas, Los Angeles, Memphis, and New York City.

Lecrae's Gravity album is also expected to be released in the fall.
