BLU & EXILE – ON THE RADIO

A whole decade has gone by since the release of Blu & Exile’s Below The Heavens and the duo have decided to release a new project that is a collection of songs that were recorded during those sessions but didn’t make the final cut. “On The Radio” is one of those joints liberated before In the Beginning: Before the Heavens drops.

“This song was our attempt to make a radio song exactly stating how we feel about the radio,” Blu explains. “Our way of keeping it true and not selling out even for the album. This is one of the songs that helped me get more open with writing the rest of the album. One of Exile’s oldest beats, he pulled that from deep out the vault. I was like… ‘oh, that’s me.’”

YG HOOTIE FEAT. KENDRICK LAMAR – MY CITY

YG Hootie and Kendrick Lamar connect for the anthemic “My City” off of Hootie’s Hubris project dropping in November.

“Compton gets a lot of bad press which shapes the perception of our city, but most never know George Bush and his family once resided here,” YG Hootie says of the cover art. “They even went as far to suppress the fact, but you gotta give it up for The City.”
