Let me tell you a story about this MC named Blu. He dropped this incredible album back in 2007 with a producer by the name of Exile called Below The Heavens. It received fabulous reviews and instantly launched Blu’s career above and beyond anything we had seen in the indie hip-hop scene for a long time. Four years later, Blu has released a slew of notable, yet far from top-notch works, and even signed a deal with Sire Records. Let’s face it, you all already know the story, and you are all sick of these abstract lo-fi tracks that Blu has been putting out. Just give us NoYork! already! Well, folks, it looks like it is finally coming around. Yup, because “My Sunshine”, which features Nia Andrews on vocals and Shafiq Husayn on production, will serve as the first single off of Blu’s major label (we still hope) debut. To accompany the single we have stunning visuals directed by Aaronisnotcool, a self-depreciating filmmaker that is now all over my radar. No word on when exactly Warner will unleash NoYork!, but things are certainly looking up.
