Blu is the leader of West Coast hip hop. Since the days of The Pharcyde, Freestyle Fellowship, and Jurassic 5, there have been few wordsmiths that have grasped the attention of listeners worldwide. Introduced to NWA and Public Enemy by his father, Blu later was captivated by the likes of Black Star, The Roots, and Common, creating a unique balance that is displayed in Blu's personality and music.

Blu's first full length LP, "Below the Heavens" pairs him with producer Exile on the Sound in Color imprint. His first single "Narrow Path" has rocked stages across the world, as fans begin to feel the impact of Blu's music. His delivery flows flawlessly, while the content reflects the joy and pain of working class youth everywhere. Since the release of "Narrow Path", Blu has performed alongside Slum Village, X-Clan, Platinum Pied Pipers, Lyrics Born, DJ Houseshoes, and many others, while participating in 3 high-profile US-wide tours alongside musical family members: Ta'Raach, Aloe Blacc, and Exile.
The buzz has fans salivating for new music. Worldwide, people are looking to put hope into the 'next' emcee that will give them the same feeling when they first heard Black Thought, Common, or Slum Village. Blu fulfills this need, but maintains something that is entirely new, while not recycled.

"Like the first time you heard Tip or De La, Blu's a one of a kind - no question about it. He's taking hip hop to a new level with clear influences from the golden age and Dilla, but more than anything, himself. Priceless."
- Mark De Clive Lowe


"Blu is one of my favorite emcee's hands down, he's the voice of LA."
- Flying Lotus


"Blu is THAT one cat to be really looking out for, already making a name on the internet and overseas without an album out...LA has a list of new generation MCs that are bringing heat: Trek Life, Bishop Lamont, Glasses Malone, Roc C, and now you can add Blu to it. And with Exile on the beats?! Oooh man, forget about it....you got a deadly combination....don't sleep peoples!!!"
-Rhettmatic (Beat Junkies / Visionaries)


"I can see this album completely taking over this summer. Blu & Exile have some the best MC/producer chemistry I've heard in a long time - Blu said it himself: "The new version of Pete & CL is Exile and B-L." Can't argue with that!"
- Kenny Fresh, Bling47.com
