Pink Floyd nearly released a hip-hop album in 1987 | Consequence of Sound

Progressive psych-rock pioneers Pink Floyd nearly pulled an Aerosmith and went hip-hop in 1987.


Can you imagine if this really happened? Think about how damaged their legacy would be, even though Aerosmith pulled it off somewhat successfully. Or do you think it would be a hit? I love Pink Floyd, but 1987 era Floyd is definitely at the bottom of their time. Add white guy hip hop to overproduced 80’s synth sounds and it could be the corniest thig ever; or the best.
