“I named the project ‘House of Blues’ for a couple reasons,” Boldy says. “My first show with Nas was in Chicago at The House Of Blues, so it was a monumental moment in my rap career, but it also refers to a particular period in my life in Detroit.

A nine-track effort, Rocaine and 50 Gwuap Jay C appear multiple times throughout. However,
Gunplay Don Logan pops up on the Blues highlight, “Hit It.”
