Speaking of the Neptunes...

Anyone else notice that Fam'Lay's 5/5 internet classic Skrung Owt bizarrely received the video treatment a couple of weeks back at least 5 years after it first leaked, presumably because Tyler gave the song a new lease of life with Splatter in 2010 and, after kinda killing shit on the low last year with Money Makin' Trick and Beach Cruiser, Fam-Lay's long-delayed debut album looks like it's finally going to see the light of day :

Fam-Lay - Skrung Owt
(From the internet; 2004 or 2005/Trained To Go album; 2034?)


The video was made on Pharrell's dime for KarmaloopTV and, frankly, it shows because it looks like a tacky streetwear advert by A$AP Rocky & Smoke DZA. Ho-hum - at least it features some attractive women cavorting with Fam-Lay as he wears a pretty fly white Gucci mink and it still sounds like the greatest Mobb Deep song of the noughties. Less importantly, I can now add it to my 2012 singles list and fantasise that it'll even get a 12" release on Record Store Day next year.

Under normal circumstances this last paragraph would exist solely to remind you that Fam-Lay now makes vastly superior music to the utter joke that is Pusha-T in 2012 and then make sarky comments about the fucking cretinous saltines who pop up in the Skrung Owt comment sections on Youtube to proclaim Tyler a better Rapper than Fam-Lay, but I'm more interested in finding out how the hell Tyler got his hands on the instrumental and where I can find it myself today.

I'm almost positive the instrumental was just looped.

Thanks, Lucas.

How do you download/rip audio from Soundcloud, though?

Here's the instrumental for 'Splatter' which is probably the same, I don't know

offliberty.com works well. Just paste the url of the soundcloud page into the search box.
