There has been much discussion pitting BluandExile v. BluandTaraach v. BluandMainframe, as if they’re inextricable hybrids of MC and beat maker. But part of what makes Blu such a powerful MC is his ability to seamlessly traverse the distance between the raw beats of an Exile, the otherworldly concepts of a Ta’Raach and the vintage rhythm of a Mainframe.
I was at Boombox for this preview and allow me to be your witness in saying Blu’s energy surges on every musical front. You can hear and see his unwillingness to be boxed in by a singular sound.
Keep an open mind when it comes to J&J. It may not be your cup of tea, but that doesn’t mean it’s any better or worse than Blu’s other projects. Just different.
Either way, expect to hear more from Blu and Mainframe on TSS in the very near future.
