Blu who has been releasing mixtapes and albums since 2006 has a fan base that expands much farther than his hometown, LA.
He gained recognition with his 2007 debut album, made with accomplished producer Exile, ‘Below the Heavens‘. Receiving high critical praise, it put him on the map as one of XXL Magazine’s Ten Freshmen of ’08. Since then, he has released A Day Late and A Dollar Short with rapper Sene.
He has also released mixtapes here and there, many internet singles, and made a fair amount of guest appearances. A friend of mine compiled all of his best free work into a zip file for you guys. DownloadCheck out one of his best songs, My World Is ft. Exile
