Blu on The Sound of Young America

Posted in Artists, Other Peoples' Interviews on July 8th, 2008 by Hyphen


Along with Crooked I, one of my favorite MC’s that transcends the “best on the West Coast” classification is Los Angeles’ Blu.  He’s one of the best period.  He’s been doing it for a minute, but he really burst on to the scene in the last 2 years and people all over are starting to take notice.  The album he dropped with Exile, Below The Heavens, was an instant classic to me and my favorite project from last year.  Go cop it if you haven’t already, I promise it’s ill.

Blu recently stopped by Jesse Thorn’s NPR radio show, The Sound of Young America, for a dope in depth interview about his background.  If you aren’t familiar with him, this provides a nice glimpse into where he’s coming from.  Enjoy:
