The recording was released as a double album produced solely by Bombay, whose lo-fi sound is noticeably similar to another West Coast producer, Madlib. Over the course of the 60 minute recording, Blu explores everyday life in Los Angeles, California, with guests who mostly hail from Cali- save for Mobb Deep member Prodigy on "Red & Gold". He opens the recording with the aptly-titled "Home" with vocals from independent soul singer Jimetta Rose.Read more ›
I'm loving every verse on here, including the verses from the multiple guest features (Evidence, Alchemist, Planet Asia, Phil Da Agony, Fashawn, and many more). Everyone does their thing here.
My standout tracks are `He-Man`, `Red & Gold', `Can't Stop Won't Stop`, and ``The Return'. Solid effort from Blu and Bombay. Blu is one of the best to represent the West.
Picture yourself rolling through the west coast with all the windows down on Daytons in the summer time, Los Angeles to be specific. Blu really executed this vibe with both content and overall sound. The album is essentially an ode to his hometown/coast, and he did a stellar job doing so. In comparison to some of his earlier projects, Below the Heavens for example, he was really able to take a step back from a heavily east coast inspired sound. It opens with Home, as the Blu states, "88 carats on my gold face, shining like the golden state, riding on Daytons / Banging for my whole race, all black, no blank spaces on my ball cap..." Blu also did a cut titled Dre Day which is indirectly touching on Dr. Dre's The Chronic album being such an influence on the coast, presenting a mellow vibe yet thick lyrics.
It is also loaded with features from Fashawn, Pac Div, Imani (of Pharcyde), Casey Veggies, Planet Asia, to Alchemist and Prodigy. Covering both coasts, Can't Stop, Won't Stop displays straight lyrical mastery from over seven emcees, loosely categorized and insanely sharp. The album is predominantly west-inspired, but Blu makes it clear how important the east still is to his influence as an artist, based off his line up of featured artists, and some highlights in the production. He stated on a press release that this album is his "most defining record".Read more ›
The lyrics are always on point with Blu talking about all the shit the hood brings to you and allows you to transcend the circumstances. The beats and melodies are always on point. It is a good album to chill when you are on the train ride back to LA or when you're chillin' in your room. Don't miss out.
