Blu & Exile will drop Miles: From An Interlude Called Life on July 17th. After dropping “Miles Davis” last month, the duo release the 9-minute “Roots of Blue” featuring Jacinto Rhines.

“The song is one of the strongest songs on the album,” Blue said of the song. “Its title says it all, ‘Roots Of Blue.’ On this song we took it back, all the way back.  Back to the very first people who have walked this earth that have influenced, or cultured or matured, my walk on this earth. Everyone except my immediate family. This song is my own personal family tree.”

With As God Intended on the way, Che Noir and Apollo Brown drop “’94” as Noir rhymes about the year that she fell in love with Hip Hop. Arguably one of the best years in the history of Hip Hop, the smooth production allows Che to pay homage to everyone who dropped albums in 1994.

Papoose pays homage to the many, many innocent black men and women who have been victims to police brutality and racism with his “Tribute.” The moving video serves as a reminder that the situation in this country is nothing new and hasn’t shown very much improvement.



In the midst of a community still reeling from the murder of George Floyd, Conway The Machine provides a rallying cry for those who are struggling with what is going on in the country. “Front Lines” finds Conway going in over Beat Butcha production to touch on the protests surrounding yet another incident where an unarmed black man has been killed by police.
