Cloudy Clouds has released his new video titled ‘Wrote You A Love Letter’ as well as his debut debut album, ‘Imprisoned in a Daydream’, fourteen tracks during which he stakes a serious claim to the title of one of the UK hip-hop scene’s most cutting-edge, satirical, and socially aware lyricists and performers.
Heavy doses of self-deprecating humor; serious social commentary; love; dreamworlds and nights on the town all appear in equal measure, in what can comfortably be called one of the most entertaining, thought-provoking hip-hop albums of the year.
Cloudy Clouds is Mensa-member Claudio Elliston, who, whilst based in the Crouch End area of London, takes his influence from some of hip-hop’s biggest, mould breaking talents, from Eminem to Lupe Fiasco to Sha Stimuli.
Never conforming to rap stereotypes, Cloudy Clouds tracks have a brutal honesty without the baggage of fake glamour or soulless commentary – they hit home because they’ve come from a very real place, even when sprinkled with his uniquely quirky worldviews and British humor. A highlight on the album; Wrote You a Love Song, showcases not only Cloudy’s lyrical sharpness but also his visual skill with a stunning video!
Never a man for half-measures, Cloudy Cloud’s album, Imprisoned in a Daydream, dropped the same day as the single, closely followed by Wrote You a Love Song, which has just been released! Majestic storytelling stopping off at trap, grime, drill, and commercial petrol stations, Imprisoned in a Daydream sees Cloudy Clouds at the peak of his powers.
