Lil B – “I’m God“

I got a chance to link up with the Based God himself this weekend. He showed me a cgi picture of an uprooted castle floating amongst clouds and said “that’s the kind of music I want to make.” Then he played this song. The beat, courtesy of someone named Clams Casino, is total weightless and aerial madness. B is sort of on cruise control, but that’s really the best way he rides. (via)

Make no mistake: “cloud rap” is not the newest sub-sub-sub-genre of rap music we’re tying to forcefully bring to life. Instead, “cloud rap” is more of a thematic movement: not all rappers make cloud rap, and not all rappers that make cloud rap make it exclusively. However, in 2010, we’ve seen a lot of new artists singularly focused on stepping outside of rap’s comfort zone and doing what they want with beats and lyrics. (via)
