That Good Good Music: Blu

It is getting harder and harder to find decent music in the world, especially when it comes to hip-hop. That’s why I have so much love and respect for all the artists who are able to make truly high quality music in this age of over commercialized music. As Q-Tip says in the song "You Can't Hold the Torch", the game isn't the same. The heart and soul truly are divided when it comes to music. Some artists focus so much on the "fame game" to the point that their are selling a bit of their soul along with their records. However, Blu is definitely an artist whose mind is on his music and it shows in the quality of music he makes. I feel he provides the best of both worlds. His lyrics are excellent and they give that certain level of consciousness that I look for in my music yet the overall sound definitely has the potential to cross over to mainstream when the music world is ready. I love the beats in his music, they are on a whole other level than what I've been hearing in other music lately. His partner, Exile, is definitely holding him down in that area. 


(Click on the songs and they will play in the music player located at the bottom left corner of your screen. If the songs do not play, just refresh the page and try again.)

Blu most definitely has that good good and if you're still sleeping on him, it’s time to wake up!
