Watch 'Sake Bombs'—Timbaland-Produced Single by LightningCloud


When Native hip hop act LightningCloud, which consists of MC Redcloud, Crystle Lightning, and DJ Hydroe, won the East vs. West: Battle for the Best contest back in March, the true prize was the chance to record a track with hip hop mastermind Timbaland. As a producer, Timbaland has been responsible for chart-topping hits by Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado, and Aaliyah, and left his mark on instant hip hop classics like "Dirt Off Your Shoulder" by Jay-Z and "Get Ur Freak On" and "Work It" by Missy Elliott.

The fruit of the LightningCloud-Timbaland sessions is "Sake Bombs" (available as a free download at LightningCloud's SoundCloud page) -- here's the official video:

The clip was filmed at The Gas Lamp restaurant in Long Beach. To stay up-to-date on LightningCloud's further adventures, visit

As a music listener, native american, human being and a young male who knows that woman should be respected, I have to say this is terrible. Some might say I'm being too serious when I rate this as worthless and below despicable, but any use other than a musical racist joke is beyond me. What really bothers me is that the lead female designating herself as nothing more than a sex object, a mentality native and other minority groups have been fighting against for centuries. This mentality is a product of internalized racism engrained in oppressed communities that hacks away at our major source of power, strong secure woman.
