[Audio] N.E.R.D. – “Inside of Clouds Remix” by Tyler the Creator

According to their tumblr, Tyler, The Creator of OFWGKTA is one of “The Biggest N*E*R*D Fans (since august 2002);” so its only right he “Swag This Song Out With A Verse.” From N.E.R.D’s 2010 album Nothing, the original “Inside Of Clouds” is a collection of innocent child-like internal thoughts about rainy days, like “I smell it when I go outside, then it just pours,” or my favorite which Tyler’s version retains: “rain gives life cuz it is amaizng.” The most mischievous thing N.E.R.D’s rain loving youngster gets up to, if you can even call it mischievous, is playing in rain-filled potholes. Enter the pitch-shifted and adolescent Tyler’s perspective on the same day and amongst the same puddles, and suddenly everything seems dourly tainted and human, “drip drop the angels made a pit stop, pissin’ on the demons of the earth,” and demented, “on my way home I punched a bitch for an umbrella/cuz I really didn’t wanna get my shit wet/run through the puddles, playin’ in the mud … (fun).” He mentions a sippy cup at one point too, around the same time he talks about warming his frontal regions up at a fire.

Check out the original and remix back-2-back below. On an unrelated note, Tyler and the OFWGKTA crew are on a plane making their way to London for a show right now. Surprisingly, tickets are only 5 bucks. Not for long. Definitely not for long.
