When it comes to albums, Blu prefers a lone producer.
After capturing the rap world’s attention in 2007 with Below the Heavens alongside Exile, the left coaster went on to release projects with Nottz (Gods in the Spirit, Titans in the Flesh), Madlib (Bad Neighbor, The Turn Up with MED), Bombay (Good to Be Home), and a few others.
Now, the left coaster’s effortless flow and streetwise storytelling is being matched up with the dynamic, soulful production of Madlib’s brother Oh No (we need another Gangrene album, btw) on their brand new concept album, A Long Ret Hot Los Angeles Summer Night.
“It’s a true honor to put it down with the legendary Jackson Brothers,” Blu says about working with both Oh No and Madlib. “Oh No never fails and this project has been provided with straight heat for the streets.”
Locked in at 17 tracks, including “The Lost Angels Anthem” and “Pop Shots,” the album title perfectly explains what you’re about to hear once you press play: a wild night in Los Angeles; equipped with house parties, shoot outs, run-ins with law enforcement, and everything in between.
Featuring appearances from Abstract Rude, Ca$hUs King, Donel Smokes, Jabee, and more, the album can be heard below. Press play and add A Long Red Hot Los Angeles Summer Night on your preferred streaming platform.
