Incase you missed Blu & Exile play their debut UK show on Thursday, or don’t have a clue who Blu & Exile are, don’t worry, I’m not going to tell you. The main reason is that Blu & Exile – Give me my flowers while I can still smell them is a decent album, but the production sounds like the cutting room floor of Q-tip and Dilla. Blu & Exile are decent rappers and the album holds some stand out tracks like ‘Maybe One Day feat. Black Spade’, but the whole album lacks ambition.
Blu & Exile keep in their comfort zone through out, and what they do, they do well. I just wish they had pushed the envelope out a bit further. Overall its a decent 3 out of 5 album, and definitely worth checking out here.
