I can't find the thread anymore and while we are on topic: Where do I search for threads now? The search bar only works for the main page, but not the forums.

Anyway: what happened with this album? I remember Blu putting a very lo-fi version of the Madlib laced UCLA album out and then deleting it and catching some shit. What happened to that?

If it was a serious album, I get it...but if Blu pulled the Mixtape excuse, why did Bubbles delete it?

PS: Sorry for making another thread, I just want to end this speculations.

I find stmb threads by googling them. Stones Throw says Madlib wasnt involved but then again they said DOOM wasnt sending imposters out. Idk

Nah, I'm good. Got the Mixtape, Album, Whatever when Blu released it.

I'm just curious if we can except something like Give Me Flower While I Can Still Smell Them...you know, being completely remastered and everything.

Gerbick - we took away the search field because google works as a better search for the STMB than the seach tab did. It actually works better for the main site too. Hope to improve our search soon, but probably will keep the board the way it is.

About the demo thing you refer to - Blu & MED are apparently working out something legit with a few of these tracks, maybe to see the light in 2013. The Madlib camp had it taken off Blu's bandcamp page a few hours after he originally posted it.

Another thing to keep in mind about UCLA is that Blu was SELLING it for like 10 bucks, apparently without The Madlib's permission.

Really? Wow haha. Bubbles needs the $$ for the next fix haha.
The whole deal seemed weird from the beginning. Suddenly Blu drops UCLA track by track, catching some s*** from fans and then it's deleted. For someone like Madlib who supposedly doesn't use ze internetz he was quick to react. I never really listened to this because of the piss poor quality. Sounds like Blu recorded this through a burnt potatoe in the middle of a storm.

Well, thanks for the information, Mr. ST Bot! Good to know the underrated beast MED is working on something new. That's always good news to me

Where, you ask? Because Blu looks like Bubbles from The Wire. Let me find picture proof real quick, bang bang.

Blu is talented, can't deny that. His guest verses on The Root's How I Got Over are fantastic. Below The Heavens is a crazy record, Give Me Flowers While I can Still Smell Them is cool and his recent NO YORK had its moments.
