|L.A. rapper Blu burst onto the scene with the widely acclaimed Exile collaboration Below The Heavens, igniting a West Coast hip hop renaissance in the process. In the years since, Blu has released a steady stream of critically-acclaimed projects, from the love-themed concept album Her Favorite Colo(u)r to the eclectic masterpiece York. In the process, he's worked with a host of hip-hop's top talents, including The Roots, Alchemist, Lupe Fiasco, B.o.B., Madlib, Aloe Blacc, Asher Roth, 9th Wonder, Evidence, Nottz, and many more.|
Now, Blu is back with Good To Be Home, his first ever double album. Featuring a host of West Coast hip-hop luminaries, Good To Be Home is an unapologetic celebration of Los Angeles music and culture. ''This is my most defining record ever,'' says Blu. A cohesive collection with two discs and no filler, Good To Be Home is an important addition to Blu's already impressive catalog.
Blu is back and I like the sick lines on the string sample track ''The Return''. He has some lines that put gang banging into perspective for how ridiculous it really is. ''Rap Dope'' is the sick shit that we like to hear from Blu. The flow is just as wavey as the breaks produced by Bombay. ''Summer Time'' is a dope jam with the classic Kool And The Gang ''Summer Madness'' sample. Blu still shows that he is no joke and one of the greatest.
