OK, let’s see if you can keep up with me here. Back in August 2011, Blu’s super-anticipated NoYork! album found its way online after he allegedly tossed copies of it into the audience at a concert. Months passed, remix EPs hit the web (and then disappeared), and, of course, the Los Angeles rapper dropped several projects in the meantime. Then, earlier this year, he announced plans to properly release NoYork! on CD and vinyl through Nature Sounds. B
ut wait! Now that the album is officially out, the title has changed to York … while everything else pretty much remains the same. That means those bouncy, futuristic beats from Flying Lotus, Shafiq Husayn, Exile, and more are still in place. Hmm.
You have probably already heard this if you’re a huge Blu fan but if not, you can stream York at DJ Booth.
