"At least misspell the name or some shit."

 

Good idea.

Stop calling out samples on message boards and WhoSampled and the likelihood of The Madlib being sued dwindles. I'm pretty sure he said as much in that Benji B interview a few months back.

(This is just a general statement and not directed at anyone in particular.)

Dunno, Below the Heavens is better than anything FG has put out (including Pinata if you take away Madlib beats). Nowadays though FG does seem to be working harder and whatnot vs Blu who has been pretty stagnant.

 

Blu's a dope emcee, no question, but he puts out way too much music.  Internet or no internet, the distribution channel having been revolutionized or not, even die-hard fans of his have to be finding it difficult to keep up with his releases.  I haven't listened to any Blu project outside of Below the Heavens yet, but just looking at his catalog and the rate at which he releases projects certainly does not encourage me to do so - - there's no end!

HerFavoriteColour was good, but beyond that I didn't enjoy too much...

Actually went to a Blu show in Miami tonight.  He performed in a hole-in-a-wall venue (these usually make for better shows) and did his thing.  Granted the stage wasn't all that big, I thought his stage presence could have been better - - more left to right movement and so forth.  He took time to sign merch and took tons of pictures w/ fans -- gotta love a well-known artist who doesn't have the God complex pervading throughout the industry today.

 

Interesting note: MED, who'd been on tour with him, didn't show.  I've heard they had a conflict at some point, resulting in MED being left off the remaining stops of the tour.  

 

I'm sharing a couple of photos from the show on my Instagram, check 'em out if you'd like: http://instagram.com/glass_pinata.
