The ever-prolific Blu returned with a new solo album last week, which saw him stepping away from the single producer projects he’s blessed us with over the last few years. In spite of the increase in contributors, The Color Blu(e) maintains the jazzy sound that has arguably been Blu’s most successful material, thanks to beats from the likes of J57, Sirplus and Exile. You can dip into the album below, while downloads and physicals are available via Bandcamp.Continue reading “Blu: The Color Blu(e)”
Booda French is smashing it at the moment, what with his new EP and now this second video release from the project. Cut Off Point features Carnell Cook, with J57 on the beat. Awesome is Everyday is out now on Soulspazm Records. If you didn’t catch it, I interviewed Booda a couple of days ago, which you can read here.
Booda French is a name that should be familiar to anyone who has followed the UK hip hop scene over the past few years.

So much good music coming out at the moment, I don’t know if I can keep up. This new EP is a prime example of the standard of hip hop the UK is putting out right now and Jefferson Price is the man responsible. “Just Assume I’m Everywhere” sees the Don’t Flop emcee hooking up with American crew Brown Bag Allstars (BBAS), amongst others, to deliver us five solid unique tracks, including the awesome opener “What You Saying Though” and the dope posse cut “Insight”.
