I had been a min since I heard any Blu music. After that legendary Below The Heavens LP w/ co conspirator Exile. Ever since, we've known of this deal w/ Warner for a full length, we've been patiently waiting, and he impatiently. But all good. Those are label politics, surprisingly, alive and kicking.
But in the interim, we've been offered something to hold us down until that day when his full LP does drop. A few weeks back, posted up was the multiple cover No York LP/mixtape.
Featured on the mix are any of the LA names that Blu has known for years, many of which he's worked with before, names we've grown to know and other discover. Names like Dibiase, Flying Lotus, Knxwledge, Samiyam, Exile, Madlib, Shafiq, Bilal, J*DaVeY and Sa-Ra.
