It's been about five years since California natives Blu & Exile teamed up and released the modern hip hop classic Below the Heavens. They'll be putting out another album later this year, and it's an LP I believe leaked onto Bandcamp for a short while last year, but the final version set to drop in September will have a more finished feel to it--you see, the leaked version was pretty lo-fi, and allegedly unmastered.
Blu & Exile are building up the buzz for their next collab with a new EP of tracks, which the track streaming above comes from. The EP's title: Maybe One Day. It's out now via Dirty Science / Fat Beats. Blu's lyrics on this thing are pretty sharp, targeting some potent emotions. Exile's production serves as a perfect bed for the sentiments behind the verses, too.
