Music: Blu & Exile – True & Livin’ EP

Legendary hip-hop duo Blu & Exile return with a brand new EP titled True & Livin. The 3-track EP features smooth and soulful production from Exile, with Blu rapping effortlessly, flowing like butter throughout the amazing beats. The two legends are well and truly back and I couldn’t be happier.

“True & Livin'” features a soulful sample looped throughout, with basslines and keys sprinkled throughout the angelic beat. “Spread Sunshine” features some incredible guitar licks and a subtle beat with a bassline that adds depth and groove to the beat. Blu brings an introspective verse that is lyrically dense and intricate in terms of wordplay and flow. “Power to the People” features Choosey, Johaz, Cashus King, Aloe Blacc, Fashawn and Blame One in a sort of cipher that brings different energies and flows over a hard-hitting boom bap beat. It’s an excellent track with incredibly talented artists, and the beat is so hard too. Overall, Blu and Exile exceed my expectations, but would have obviously loved a longer project.
