Blu’s In A “NOYORK!” State Of Mind

By | 15 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=172796"> 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 <a href="http://www.hardknock.tv/News/Blu-talks-No-York-and-New-album-with-Exile-/04BF6FFFF0099DD1100160134A1D4">Hard Knock TV</a> on his latest endeavors as well as his experience thus far as a signee to Warner Bros.

Kidz In The Hall Drop Junk Food For Thought

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=163642"> The road to a song's creation is one of my favorite things to witness in music production. So it's no surprise that Kidz In The Hall's first Brain Candy flick caught my attention. In it, Double-0 wipes some dust off this Little Anthony and The Imperials' <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExTi7p0nQEw">"Hold On To Someone"</a> sample for "So Amzin'" and throws in some panache via the MIDI controller and the Yamaha keyboard.
