I know a lot of people, people whose taste in hip-hop are almost identical to mine, who love Blu, who insist he's created classic albums, who think he's one of the best rappers alive.See more...

Thanks to Blu, R.A. The Rugged Man and Tristate for not only allowing me a chance to atone for my hip-hop sins with a post, but more importantly, for dropping some straight up dope, underground hip-hop.See more...

West coast hip-hop hasn't looked this good since the glory days of NWA and Snoop Dogg. Not only are Kendrick and crew ushering in a new era in L.A. rap, groups like Pac Div are picking up that torch and running with it. See more...

Following his appearance at New York University a few months back it seemed like Berkeley, California rapper Lil B fell off the map for a bit, but fear not because the based god of swagville or whatever the hell he's calling himself these days has made his triumphant return.See more...
When Blu drops some new dopeness you grab it immediately and appreciate it. "The Great" is some new dopeness. Not only does Blu once again comes through on the mic, his partner in rhyme Exile throws down a hell of a beat.See more...
We've heard a lot of hip-hop tackles religion tracks over the years, Talib Kweli's "Hostile Gospel" always comes to mind for me, but there haven't been many that are as musically precise and lyrically complex as "The Man". This is Blu at his best, and when he's at his best, he's as good as anyone. Listen...See more...

For "Kiss The Sky" to have such a whimsical title and such pleasant singing courtesy of Mela Machinko, Blu sure is snapping. Blu's never come across as an extremely aggressive rapper to me, but that has now changed. It's great though. I'm sure every rapper needs that one track where they just go in on the haters and naysayers and "Kiss The Sky" is surely that song for Blu. Listen...See more...
A couple weeks ago I first heard ANTHM and was impressed; impressed enough to listen to the next joint of his I saw pop up. That was dope too, so when new offering "Polaris" dropped I was already stoked to press play. And now "Polaris" is already one of my favorite tracks of the week. Listen and download...See more...

But depending on Blu to release music in a fashion that makes any logical sense is like depending on The Fat Guy Who Yells to not yell, or be fat. It's just how Blu rolls, and if music like 'The Clean Hand" is the result, I'm all for it. Or to put it more bluntly, holy balls this is dope. Pete Rock is definitely sounding Dilla influenced here, and Blu sounds as strong as I've heard him in months. See more...See more...
According to that always reliable source the interwebs, Blu was a little surprised to hear Black Star use Madlib's "The Fix" beat for their comeback track, you know, considering he had recorded to the same beat a year earlier, although he never released it. Until now. Ladies and gentlemen, "Ex". Listen and download...See more...
