Blu(e) balls.

But actually, this reminds me of untitled unmastered. Shorter project following a year after longer, grander bombshell of a record, providing a more summarized version of sound that the previous bombshell did.
After last year's incredible "Miles" with Exile, Blu delivers a short but sweet project of some quality jazz rap. Great instrumentals (obviously), and after over a decade of recording music, Blu is as sharp of a lyricist as ever.

Blu returns for a shorter, simpler project and i’m really digging it. The instrumentals are the standout part of the album though.

Light Eight /8
