Hear Thundercat’s ‘Drunk’ as a Chopped & Screwed Suite

Another chopped (never slopped) masterpiece

Six months after its initial release, Thundercat‘s 2017 outing, DRUNK is finally shining a very purple hue.

WATCH: Black Thought, Thundercat + More Talk Summer Tunes, Romphims on The Questions

Over the weekend, DJ Candlestick (of OG Ron C‘s The Chopstars) delivered a freshly-slurred rework of the album, stretching each and every cut out to the point of no return, lacing the tracks with his hallmark drops and half-speed pacing; a perfect subject for the perennial recalibrations of the Houston collective.

WATCH: Thundercat’s “Tokyo” Video is All Games, Neon and Feline Things
