Details

From weaving thought-provoking poetics to channeling the spirit of vintage West Coast gangsta rap,
acclaimed Los Angeles emcee Blu is a dynamic musical presence, forever evolving and defying
expectations. Supremely talented producer and musician Shafiq Husayn has a similarly diverse
skill set, with a storied history as a member of Sa-Ra Creative Partners and solo production credits
for top artists across the musical spectrum, from Erykah Badu to Ice-T to Anderson .Paak to
Jurassic 5 and many more.

After linking up for the mixtape The Blueprint back in 2018, Blu and Shafiq Husayn are reuniting for
the new album Out Of The Blue, elevating their collaboration to a new level. “The Blueprint was just
me rhyming over some of Shafiq's beats that I found online,” Blu explains. “This time we were
actually in the studio together. We’ve been working together since 2008, but this is our first official
album.”

Awash in Shafiq’s dense sonic architecture, Out Of The Blue showcases the intricacy of Blu’s
spiritual street talk while simultaneously delivering a series of bass-heavy L.A. anthems. Entirely
produced by Shafiq Husayn, the collection features guest appearances by MED, Exile, Chuuwee,
Thurz, Speed Walton, Jimetta Rose, and Freestyle Fellowship members Myka 9 and Self Jupiter.
“Out Of The Blue is my G-Funk album,” Blu explains. “Big brother Shafiq gave us a master class
in production. We just in here being funky and having fun.”
