Chicago, IL; Sandusky, OH - “For the upright will inhabit the land, and those with integrity will remain in it.” [Proverbs 2:21]
Above the Clouds is one of Christian rap’s hidden gems. The duo of iNTELLECT and Tae Lamar represent an element of hip-hop that has become a rare commodity, the pairing of the beat-maker and the emcee. Classic groups once set the trends for the genre and Above the Clouds is helping the culture remember what is truly special about individuals working together with a common goal in mind.
With their first release since 2020, the group enlisted the services of CHH artist Procyse along with DJ Grubbernaut for the new single Real Ones Pt. 2. iNTELLECT explains the timing of the release by saying, “while we have both been pushing our own personal endeavors (Lamar with Afresh Culture and iNTELLECT with Polished Arrow), we felt it was time to join forces to begin the next Above the Clouds chapter.”
The follow-up to the record “Real Ones”, from the album ‘The Righteous’, Real Ones Pt. 2 is a sequel that raises the bar. Locked-in wordplay from iNTELLECT and Procyse elevate the already potent production of Tae Lamar. DJ Grubbernaut brings the finishing flavor by adding perfectly placed cuts.
Real Ones Pt. 2 hits streaming platforms on February 27, 2023.

About Above the Clouds
Rapper iNTELLECT and beat maker Tae Lamar formed the group Above The Clouds, in early 2019, due to their common love for Jesus and 90’s hip hop. Drawing comparisons to classic hip hop groups like Pete Rock & CL Smooth and Gang Starr (who the name of the group is inspired by), this producer/emcee collaboration delivers a nostalgic brand of hip hop that shows that you can deliver the gospel over classic boom bap.
