mp3: Freddie Gibbs – Kush Cloud (ft. Krayzie Bone & Spaceghostpurrp)

Blog-buzz subgenre cloud-rap isn’t a style that I would expect to hear from Freddie Gibbs, who has managed to stay relevant without riding any trends, but his experiment with ambient beats on ‘Kush Cloud’ makes me hope this isn’t the last we hear of Freddie in the clouds.  As expected from a track called ‘Kush Cloud’, the instrumental is an airy piece of ambient synths and piano chords that is only held down by the sharp 808 drum track.  The instrumental also provides a surprisingly good platform for Freddie Gibbs and Krayzie Bone to go in with plenty of flow switches and great wordplay.  Spaceghostpurrp is clearly right at home with the beat and steals the track with his verse at the end that works with plenty of internal rhymes and a hypnotic cadence.
