Although they recently dropped a goodie bag full of old joints from Below The Heavens, Blu & Exile get us into the Christmas spirit with a brand new joint titled “Christmas Missed Us.”
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.’”
With Bad Neighbor still going strong, Blu, MED and Madlib get some lyrical assistance from Oh No on “The Turn Up.”
