cloud., Pimp Steak Out Now
It is euphoria when you listen to a hip-hop classic (ie. Digable Planets Blowout Comb, A Tribe Called Quest Midnight Marauders, The Pharcyde Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde or of course Wu-Tang's Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers). Well during my first listen to cloud.'s most recent, Pimp Steak, I experienced that same euphoria - this album isn't going to leave my iPod, my playlists or my car for years. Yeah, that's a bold statement, but I haven't heard beat conducting this impressive since Dilla's Donuts - and as on par and comparable to [in terms of quality, not aesthetic, output or the like] Madlib's Beat Konducta volumes. A great vibe from Pimp Steak is that cloud. is offering the album FOR FREE via a MySpace blog and only asking for donation. Get it here. If you're in NY, cloud. is conveniently playing a show Monday at Glasslands, an art gallery opening on Friday and you can rest assured knowing that he'll be playing at a FMLY event asap.
"Yo Cloud man, the more I listen to Pimp Steak, the more it souinds like an underground classic!
On the real, one of the illest instrumental beat compilations i've heard ever!"
"j dilla changed my life"
"nothing like waking up in the clouds"
Alright, so I'm not great at picking out quotes, but you get it, now go get it. While you're at it, pick up his beat tape Ice Cream Cola right hurr. Both are must haves and both are free, but suggested donation.
