  • Coolstorybro

    What is this a re release? Cuz i def got it already…expect for the bonus track

  • Jonesy Stark

    Is that Andy Allo on the cover?

  • lenoirphotog
  • rez

    my favourite blu ^

  • perpetualsound

    “Initially available as a low-quality download from Blu’s myspace, HFC is finally mixed and mastered”

  • ChRiS.

    Yes!

  • ko

    he needs to rap on all of these

  • LyricEater

    Now we need a mixed and mastered version of TheGodleeBarnes LP too and I’ll be happy. Never got to enjoy the album because of the low quality.

  • DG

    TheGodleeBarnes LP is the only release i would look forward to getting mixed and mastered. I’ve heard Her Favorite Color enough

  • Lateness

    I already got all of this except the bonus track on my iPod

  • LordMort

    TheGodleeBarnes LP sets a new standard for low quality, idk why he would release that, no one can enjoy something that sounds like a tin can

  • So now Blu trying to make money off of this a year or so later? Just give us some NEW music Blu. We know you got it! Stop holdin out

  • red

    my version of TheGodleeBarnes LP is 320 kbps

  • Espo

    Huh? I got this

  • LOL WUT?

    Dear,
    Meka

    All you need to know is, this tape already dropped on February 14th 2009.

  • bucknasty

    it’s about damn time is right. glad he finally dropped this officially. imma buy it because i support dude.

  • Hardy

    If he raps on all the tracks than I’m buying it! But if it’s about to just be the same Mixtape than what’s the point? I’ll get the bonus track though

  • jtherapy

    [email protected] Red if you have a 320 version of thegodleebarnes lp then give it up already..

    BTW this release doesnt do anything special for me, but Im gonna cop cause I support dude.

  • BULLCITTTYYY

    Not gonna cop a tape that has been floating around for over two years. I’m as much of a Blu fan as the next dude and I WILL cop NoYork! and the Memoirs tape/album he did w/ Exile a few years back (if they don’t release it for free) but this? Nah… This tape was my shit in ’09 and I would have supported the man then if he put it up for sale but there is no excuse for this expect laziness and/or easy money. And only one bonus track? I will pass.

  • PRalines

    Just because it’s 320 kbps doesn’t mean its better quality. if somebody had the original and reencoded it to 320, its still going to sound exactly the same, if not worse. if it is better quality… link plz!

  • Rezo

    And it will be 128kbps sounding like it was recorded on a tape deck like the rest of the bullshit quality he releases…

  • NutsAreTheBiggerThanYours

    Didn’t Cudi and Drake try to do this with their tapes? I’ll probably buy it though….

  • lilkandy

    Yes! One of my favorite mixtapes ever MASTERED!!!!!

  • DG

    agree with @BULLCITTTYYY. I think dude is good artist but dropping a mastered version of this at this point is pointless there’s no way i would buy this and i’m all for supporting good artist but this is some bullshit like someone else said the tape has been around for a while now and the sound wasn’t that bad but honestly the tape wasn’t that great he’s released better

  • red

    I’m so disappointed.
    Honestly, I’ve listened to Her Favorite Colo(u)r all the way through almost 50 times or so and I never minded the quality. I don’t think I’ll be buying this.
    I’ll save my money for new material and shows.

  • Nerd Hassan

    I’ve been heard this….. Yeah it’s a good tape, but like everyone else said we’ve already been there and listen to it… If I’m listening to this imma listen to “Below the Heavens” first….
    Blu on some #Bullshit

  • BigWill

    Wasn’t this a free download over a year ago? Songs have been on itunes from this for a while too right? I’m not sure why he’s putting this out for sale at this point?

  • Red

    Yeah I do have the 320 but the quality is still shit Blu needs to mix and master it!

  • Ya’ll are a bunch of … haha. No reason to stoop to the level of the less intelligent I guess, lol. So glad Blu is going to release this and we’ll finally get it all mastered. If you listened to the Amnesia EP, the sound quality was SO much better. Also, Blu gives away an insane amount of quality music for free. Why shouldn’t he officially release a super dope project like this for people to buy? One love, Blu. Count me in. I sure hope it still comes with the GODleeBarnes LP mastered as originally stated, then its absolutely a no-brainer.

  • Dez

    When are we going to get some new shit from him. I’m tired of him releasing the same material just in a mastered version.

  • red

    We know Blu is amazing, but people like me have played his tapes to the point where we can recite all the lyrics and I can even name where he got some of the skits for.
    Good sound quality or not, this mixtape was near perfect and I don’t need the higher bitrate to appreciate it.
    I want new music from Blu.
    And I also want to see him tour on the East Coast.

  • LordMort

    Releasing this as an official album, mastered and all, is more than audio quality, it’s about what’s going on Blu’s discography as a solo artist, cuz honestly, mixtapes are mixtapes, they’re mostly irrelevant and quickly forgotten, and only hip hop bloggers will find them. Releasing this as an album will be a good look, imo

  • RealTalk

    you can tell who the FAKE FANS ARE.
    dude gives u tape after tape after tape after tape of freeness and when you people PRAISE him for how great he is. now dude wants to sell something all u can do is COMPLAIN, when have u put money in dudes hand? some ppl want a physical copy too, and on top its mixed n mastered, and sum ppl are just learning about blu. ur not fans ur leeches. if u dnt wanna cop fine. but to act like blu is tryna get one over on you.

  • Co-Sign RealTalk. Keep it 100.

  • straightkillah

    if this is in stores, im coping it. if it’s an online download…ehh…idk, hopefully amazon’ll have it for like 5 bucks. i’m def not spending 10 bucks on it if people say the free version and this isn’t too different cus i never saw a problem w/ the old one…

  • BULLCITY

    @RealTalk I have copped his & Ta’Raach’s The Piece Talks, his & Mainframe’s Powder and Oils and the album he did with his man Sene. And like I said, I have no problem buying an album and supporting the dude. I do that to all artists I want to see get their shine. I ain’t buying a mixtape (this is what this is) that he released on his myspace two years ago esp. where half the songs are under 2 minutes and don’t even feature him rapping on ’em. Like I said, I loved the tape and would have paid then, but it’s 2 years old and really it’s a piece of what he was going thru during the break up w/ his girl. That doesn’t make me a “fake fan”. I’m not gonna cop his Parie Art Nommee “EP” either if he tries to release that. Just cuz it’s got his name on it doesn’t mean it’s worth my $$$ – full stop

  • a.j.no-S

    man i dont care if i got it already. first its a collection of songs ive been blessed to have been able to listen to for the past two years and i still enjoy it, thus i have no problems purchasing it, and 2nd i would love to have the hard copy vinyl and/or CD. anyone who can keep my attention in this day and age of terrible music is worth my $$$ – full stop

  • allergic2wakness

    BLU’S THE WORST ARTIST IN HIP HOP WHEN IT COMES TO SHOWIN’ HIS FANS LOVE & APPRECIATION. HAD A FUKD UP AWKWARD SITUATION WHEN I APPROACHED THE DUDE AT SXSW IN AUSTIN & WAS COMPLETELY IGNORED & DISRESPECTED LIKE IF I WAS SOME FOOL HE HATED FROM HIS PAST OR SOME SHIT… IN ALL SERIOUSNESS HE LOST A FAN & I WILL NEVER SUPPORT ARROGANT CHUMPS THAT SHOW NO LOVE IN RETURN. THAT NIGHT I HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING DOPE ARTISTS LIKE BLACK MILK, FREDDIED GIBBS, TRUTHLIVE, WHO WERE ALL HUMBLE DUDES THAT WERE EVEN WILLIN TO CHAT AND TAKE A PIC.. NEVER FORGET FOR A SECOND ITS US WHO SUPPORT & BUY THE MUSIC BLU

  • Pete

    “So now Blu trying to make money off of this a year or so later? Just give us some NEW music Blu. We know you got it! Stop holdin out”

    He’s coming out with his solo album, an album with exile, and a mixtape/ep before the year is over. Chill.

  • Pete

    to bullcity: I understand not wanting to buy something when he doesnt rap on most of the beats, but then you say you wouldve bought it 2 years earlier.. why would you buy the same product with lesser sound quality just because it was newer?

  • BULLCITYYY

    @a.j.no-S — “day and age of terrible music”?? Pac Div, Dom Kennedy, U-N-I (Thurz new album too), Danny Brown, HOPE Wright, Pete Rock & Camp Lo, Curren$y, Big KRIT, Chip tha Ripper, J Cole, whole TDE crew, Dee-1, Stalley, Act Proof, Phonte’s new solo, Big Pooh’s… open your eyes and ears homie

  • “Now we need a mixed and mastered version of TheGodleeBarnes LP too and I’ll be happy. Never got to enjoy the album because of the low quality.”

    ^^^^^^ferreal ferreal yo!!! n atleast HerFavColor was listenable in the quality that was already available… that TGB LP shizz aint =[

  • yessir

    already have

  • a.j.no-S

    @BULLCITYYY, i know and have listened to most of them u mentioned, i guess what i said was kinda ignorant but at the same time when i gotta search for ages for decent music on a website such as 2dopeboys i guess i cant be blamed. phonte’s new solo dropped already?

  • l3lackstar

    If you had ANY support for the tape in your lifetime you’d cop this regardless if it was released then or now. I can’t grasp the concept of “I’d buy it then when it was released but now? Not so much” because that makes zero sense. If you liked the tape, enjoyed the tape, why would you care when the mastered copy comes out? Like I said, if you had support for it you’d cop it regardless. If you’re gonna reply to this don’t come at me with “That’s just how I feel” because if that’s how you feel then you’re a walking contradiction because if you supported it then you’d support it now and that’s real talk. If that’s how your brain works then I don’t know how you know your left from right son, because support is support regardless of release dates.

  • Blu

    @allergic2wakness

    Lol He fucked you over, I heard of this from several people, but who the fuck cares I wouldnt take like you did and be hurt over it. The man is busy and has shit he has to go through. I know I wouldnt like pussies prasing me all the time. So its cool

  • Doesn’t look like there is anything new here, what happened to that new Blu and Exile album supposed to be coming out? you know the one where they said they didn’t have a name for it and asked for names to be sent to their myspace, then he said does anyone still use myspace? haha

  • Pete

    ^^^ He said the new blu and ex album is coming out before the year is over, but after noyork. It might be called memoirs
