Cloud 8.9 is the first Self-Produced, Mixed, & Recorded Studio Album from Andre Mariette with guest features from Dem Atlas & Megan Hamilton due out for digital download on 4/20/15 independently. The album has been 5 years in the making with over 90 songs made but only 14 picked for the final version of the album. Covering a multitude of styles that range from Soul to Boom Bap but all holding a certain “Southern Bounce” that seems to be common in most of the Instrumentals and melodic verses it’s sure to be an album that can reach everyone from the casual to the most avid Hip Hop listeners.
