DESCRIPTION
In recent years, Los Angeles rapper Blu has become one of hip-hop’s
most prolific artists, releasing more than a dozen acclaimed projects and
building a worldwide fanbase. The gifted lyricist often joins forces with a
single producer for an entire collection, leading to classic collaborative
releases with Exile, Nottz, Madlib, and more. Now, Blu is back with The
Blueprint, a new mixtape produced by Shafiq Husayn. Known as one
third of visionary production team Sa-Ra Creative Partners, Shafiq
has produced for the likes of Erykah Badu, Kanye West, Andre 3000,
John Legend, Anderson Paak, Thundercat, Bilal, Ty Dolla $ign, Ice T,
and many more. Dedicated to the gang culture that permeates the city
they both call home, The Blueprint reflects Blu’s eternal L.A. state of
mind, with Shafiq’s eclectic soundscapes providing the perfect backdrop.
After mysteriously appearing online and then abruptly disappearing, the
project is now receiving an official release on CD and vinyl.
