Blu has been dubbed one of L.A.’s brightest talents after the release of his project with Exile, Below The Heavens. Following up after that modern day classic, Blu gave us projects with insane raw raps with dusty loops in Johnson&Jonson, a funky beat driven record in CRAC Knuckles, lo-fi atmospheric records like the jazzy HerFavoriteColo(u)r, Jesus, and even a tribute to the L.A. instrumental scene spear headed by Flying Lotus and the Low End Theory camp.
I recently sat down the MC best described as enigma to discuss a wide range of topics pertaining to his career. Talking for a little over 45 minutes, our conversation included Blu breaking down his lyrics, talking about his upcoming record produced by Bombay, the Breakfast Club, the evolution of his relationship with Mainframe and even a special project with Danny Brown.
