It’s easy to fly under the radar in the rap game these days. Tons of fans constantly have their eyes and ears on rappers’ day to day matters expecting routine leaks and news like clockwork. Meanwhile, rappers who stay quiet “too long” in internet time make people start wondering if they’ll end up on a milk carton.
Blu, despite claiming otherwise, has been one of those dudes shying from the limelight since he wowed the e-masses with 2007’s Below The Heavens alongside Exile. Perhaps there’s a method to the madness since heads are used to new music being released and readily available at a rapid pace. Yet it’s evident Blu’s fans really wanted to know if he planned on releasing another effort meeting or exceeding Heavens‘s magnitude.
Now Mr. Barnes is here for the faithful waiting to hear from the elusive MC. He chatted with Hard Knock TV on his latest endeavors as well as his experience thus far as a signee to Warner Bros. Records. Blu also revealed info on NOYORK!, his second solo long player, featuring production from Exile, Madlib, Flying Lotus and Double O to name a few. Dude mentioned he has more albums on the way but I’m focusing my attention towards NOYORK! and its yet announced release date. It’s finished and currently getting mixed according to the Cali lyricist. Here’s to a launch sometime this year as 2011 is still young.
