"Cloud 9: Theory of Destiny"

It’s almost 4AM and I don’t think any other sites on the net stays on grind mode as tough as I do. The answer to the question of why I do is simple, YNotMyDream. Now I bestow upon you new and approved YNMD talent which goes by the name Cloud 9. These kids come staright out of the DMV and are ready to be heard. Now give them your time, this song deserves it and is well worth it. Stay on watch for Cloud 9 being that “Theory of Destiny” is their first single from their upcoming Mini-LP, “Shades of Sound“, which will be available here @ YNMD the minute that it drops. Now get familiar.

"Cloud 9 – “Theory of Destiny”"

Cloud 9 are a genre bending group from the DMV who have already established a unique sound for themselves. Blending rap and rock they are a complete band with six members now (despite only 4 pictured above) and have a harder edge on this song then the few other hip-hop artists who do the same thing. I am interested to hear the other tracks from their upcoming LP, Shades of Sound, and how the group mixes up the styles between their tracks. No word yet when the LP is dropping but let us know if you’re feeling their music since this is Cloud 9's first post on B&B. - Beats And Bombs


Still working on that hot first release.



Not often does a generation spawn a class of musicians who at the cusp of adulthood have already mastered their respective disciplines and instruments. Drawing energy from their youth, dedication from their fans and inspiration from their unique backgrounds, Cloud 9 is already shaking up the DMV with their trendsetting style and genre bending sound.

Listen in as the Gospel/Go Go background of drummer Jonathan “Footz” Livas, the classically trained piano of Jason “Sensei” Zamora, the space rock licks of guitarist Adam Dunbar, and Jazz band bass of Denzel Hassell, are blended seamlessly to create a musical palette rich and diverse enough for multi-talented recording artist Michael “TK” Akinlosotu to paint a masterpiece of sound, blurring traditional genre lines with his warm soulful harmonies and hard hitting raps. Urban Rock, Alternative Hip Hop, there is only one way to classify Cloud 9’s music, Epic. Described as out of this world, find out for yourself and join the Cloud 9 Universe. "
