The beat was nails, and from that point on, I have openly searched for any beats that Exile has cooked up. That said, the nice, smooth beat production Exile cannot be ignored. When Exile brings it, he effing brings it. Be careful of what you download or face the consequences. This isn't bad, but I just don't have the patience to listen to a song this long.
Rapping about how broke you are might fly on one track, maybe even two, but doing it for the better part of an entire album just grows tiresome for the listener. Nowadays, most major labels are too shook to let a new rapper drop an album without proving him or herself with multiple singles and mixtapes. In 2018 alone, he released his Boonk Gang mixtape, a holiday-themed mixtape, and even a blues album. Blu - Show Me the Good Life. Still, while I really like this cut it's my favorite on the album , Blu, for the third straight song, talks about he has no money, and if I hear him rap about how he doesn't have a car again, I'm gonna lose it. Blu - Sun In My Face. Yeah right, w ould lust have you up at five writing a text? A great debut is no small task, especially in a genre as vibrant and progressive as rap.
The first beat is pretty bland; the second one is solid. Blu - Morgan Blu ft. Blu - Dancing in the Rain. Blu - Been Such a Longtime. In this case, the radio. Blu - The Day ft.
That said, Exile's beat is pretty subpar and, in my opinion, takes away from the feeling. Blu - Radio Daze ft. I'll probably just listen to a few cuts off of it from here on out. Hood recognize the progression of mic skills evident on his first solo venture. Meanwhile, there are still plenty of new albums getting adding to the slate this week.
Blu Colla Workers Here, Blu basically talks about how he's broke and how he can't even afford to take a girl out to dinner. Blu - Hold On John ft. Blu - Git It Now ft. So, naturally, I was pretty pumped going into listening to Below The Heavens, as an entire 15-track album produced exclusively by Exile is like stumbling upon a goldmine I was expecting a project similar to the incredible Boy Meets World album by Fashawn, also produced entirely by Exile. Operation: Doomsday showcased an abominable mic master, an indomitable emcee to tremble before. Cold Hearted On this cut, Blu pays homage to his mother who was abused by his father, and his friend who was shot and killed. I will definitely search for some more of Blu's material now that I finally listened to Below The Heavens so I can possibly formulate a stronger opinion of him, because right now, I am pretty torn as to how good he actually is.
It's clear that Blu possesses outstanding rapping ability, but he sometimes gets a bit too repetitive with his material I can't even count the number of times he talked about not having a car; I'm pretty sure I touched on that earlier, too , and his hooks are fairly cheesy, too. I'm looking down at my stomach and mine is grumbling too. He is certainly a very intelligent individual and uses that to his advantage in his rhymes. I definitely won't be bumping the full album on any kind of regular basis. Blu - The World Is Below the Heavens. He wanted everything to be unique and different, from the starting concept to the final message of Radio. His frenetic pace shows no signs of slowing this year, as he announced the impending Badazz 3.
Sampling vocals off the radio, Exile overcame the challenge and succeeded in creating a positive message on an instrumental album. Exile did not want to just put beats on a record. Juicen' Dranks Sorry, but what the hell is this crap? The Roots, Phonte, Patty Crash. You cannot download any of those files from here. I had heard a couple of songs by him here and there, but, admittedly, I never really sat down and gave him a good, long listen. I have to say that I was very disappointed with the production by Exile here. Blu - The Only Way.
As far as Exile goes, I am very familiar with his work. Blu - You Are Now in the Clouds. Because I already knew what Exile could do, my main concern while listening to this project was Blu's rapping skills. Whatever the case, Trap House was 10 years ahead of the curve as Gucci demonstrated his ear by helping Zaytoven and Shawty Redd get their start as architects of the sound while showing off deceptively uncomplicated lyrics that allowed his charismatic personality and surprising wit to shine through. Radio is not your average instrumental album. First Things First This track contains what is easily the best beat on the album, as Exile produces an upbeat number with banging kick drums for Blu to rap to a girl he digs over. Once again, though, Blu talks about how poor he is.
He just needs to open up his content a bit more and talk about different subjects. In making this list, we took a hard look at the canon, at the so-called unimpeachable records, and artists that so frequently make and even top these roundups. Still, the proper full-length studio rap album remains the standard by which all rappers are judged. With this record I express love in contrast to evil. The Narrow Path Exile lays down a solid head-nodder here, throwing on some great kicks and booming hats.
