Music: Blu & Shafiq – The Blueprint (mixtape album)

Legendary West Coast rapper Blu has teamed up with Grammy-award winning producer Shafiq Husayn for a mixtape album titled The Blueprint. Produced almost entirely by Shafiq, with the exception of “RED HOT L.A” (produced by Taz Arnold) and “GANG ST A (REMIX)” (Produced by Nottz), the project is sonically experimental, featuring off-beat rhymes and rhythms. The lo-fi production quality gives it a raw aesthetic, which often sounds muddy but is complemented by excellent features from the likes of Jimetta Rose, Ca$hus King, M.E.D, Xiomara and Chris CLArke amongst others. 

Listen to Blu and Shafiq’s The Blueprint (mixtape album) via Bandcamp. Make sure to support!

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by. I run In Search Of Media with the aim of giving a platform to independent beatmakers, rappers and talented musicians. I also hope to make this a home for music discovery, interesting film analysis, exhibition reviews and other interesting content for all of you guys to dive in to. I hope to start a podcast and documentary-style project soon. If you're looking to be a part of this creative project, please go to the contact page and drop me an email, or connect via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. I also write for 'Music Is My Sanctuary.' Thanks 🙏
