Film

A new documentary film about the life and Christian faith of rapper No Malice has just hit Netflix. Formerly known as “Malice,” Gene Elliott Thornton Jr. is the brother of rapper and hip-hop mogul Pusha T. Together, they made up the influential duo Clipse, and were protégés of hip-hop producer Pharrell.

However, as the film The End of Malice explains, Malice ended up splitting from the group—who was known for lyrics that often referenced their drug dealing pasts and are credited as influential artists in the “coke rap” genre—after converting to Christianity. The movie features interviews with both Pharrell and Pusha T, as well as the rapper who now goes by No Malice. You can see a trailer for the film—which was co-produced by the organization I Am Second—below.

Rachel Taylor of Rock Group 'He Is We' Found Not Guilty of Sexual Assault

Rachel Taylor, lead vocalist of indie pop act He Is We, has officially received a verdict of not guilty, exonerating her of the Sexual Assault allegation from 2017. The verdict followed a one-day jury trial held on June 4, 2019 in Jamestown, North Dakota. The verdict, which certified Taylor’s innocence of the criminal charge of Sexual assault, was met with a feeling of gratefulness and vindication by Taylor who had maintained her innocence since the charge was levied against her in September of 2017.

The other two occupants of the motel room reported not seeing any criminal activity and the trial testimony by the accuser was contradicted numerous times by one of the touring band members who testified under oath during the tri…
