ok so after doing some research, i have come to realise that blu recorded over a lot of madlibs beats without madlibs consent adn tried to sell them....resulting in madlib pulling ALL links from the internet.


now when it comes to blu and madlib (my fave MC and one of my fav Beatsmiths) i always buy, but i cant even buy as all links to buy are now non functional....
if anyone has a hook up please PM me,
and to those that have heard it, whats it saying?

    You can't request links here but it is interesting to hear of this...

    UGHH.com usually has a lot of Blu's projects so check that site out.

    I know what you mean when it comes to finding projects, you'll buy as long as they're available… after reading more into this, UGHH will not be able to distribute it, however they're still a good source for a lot of music.

    However, this IS still available but only through torrents… it's up to you if you search in Google for it.

    Blu seems to be showing more and more that he really doesn't care about anything other than the music. He doesn't care about releasing projects early that annoy other collaborators and his lack of caring for how it sounds or his taste for lack-lustre clarity is a growing shame. Now he doesn't even let Madlib know about his most recent project where he jacks his beats and sells them at a profit? LOL.

    Exile needs to pull his man to one side and let it be known that there are more important things than his strange creative surges that only seem to displease fans. We want a complete product if we're putting our money towards it.

    Yeah, agreed on everything. Blu is a masterful artist but his bizarre choices let him down.

    Nobody would have predicted this for the dude who brought the polished masterpiece, BTH.

    But he's not the only artist who has disappointed as such following a great first release.

    What are your thoughts to UCLA?

    Damn i didnt know he jacked those beats, i thought they were working on an official project. I hate how BTH was the only mastered album (i know theres No York! but i dont like it too much)

    You can tell on the unmastered projects, if there were mastered versions i think he would have a lot more respected catalogue. Dunno if hes just giving a "fuck you" to the Execs or if hes going thru some sort of artistic issue. I know a fan stopped him mid show because he was giving a shit performance and the fan called him out on it and got cheers from the crowd. hope Blu aint pulling a charles hamilton lol.

    yeh man, i was reading some fans reviews of his stage performance saying he was always too drunk or high to put on a good show...its a shame man. its like he is hiphops pete doherty or amy winehouse.

    was "give me my flowers...." mixed and mastered? i remember it sounding significantly better than a lot of his other releases.

    maaaaaaaaan, UCLA....i know for a fact, had he mixed and mastered it i would have loved it....there are some dope tracks and beats on there...Call my nga(such a raw beat), burgundy whip, play w/love, giv m up....man the whole tape is sick, just i can barely listen to some songs cus of the quality, and on top of that i swear he makes a few mistakes and repeats a few lines in different songs (cant think off the top of my head which ones)

    i hope he sorts it out with madlib and gets this done properly.

    i swear dilla did the same thing with madlib beats and madlib and him ended up doing jaylib as a result (i think i read or saw an interview where madlib was saying so)

    Give me my flowers was not mastered. It does sound a lot better than previous unmastered albums tho. on the version i have atleast the first few songs sound pretty clear but then there will be a couple songs i have to turn my volume way up to barely hear.

    I heard that there is a Mastered Version of Jesus tho. i havent listened to all of that album because mine is the unmastered and i can barely make out what hes saying in a couple songs. that song What if, has one of the illest beats ever lol.

    Pulling a 'Charles Hamilton' is definitely a term nowadays lol.

    Blu needs to assert why it is, IMO. He hasn't really been challenged about it in interviews as far as I'm aware?

    Sucks that he isn't performing well at shows too. DMX is the only other artist I've seen live that's been booed on stage… simply for turning up late. He managed to get away with it and only performed for 45 minutes. One of the worst shows I've attended although you can't knock his on stage presence and catalog for a great show.

    Please don't mention him in the same breath as Pete Doherty LOL.

    I'll check UCLA out, I break up this Friday so I'm going to have a few hip hop days whilst working on something else. Currently reading some hip hop books as well, so I'm enjoying the music at the minute.

    I think Madlib must be 'mad' at this though, no? Has he released any statements or had an interview where he's said that they're cool afterwards? If not, it doesn't look well when a producer pulls YOUR project :/

    Yeah, that's true… or thereabouts, the interviews that I've seen on their collaborations were largely based around them being likeminded though and apparently the way they worked together was in a way that only they could in terms of understanding one another. Geniuses.

    Dilla's missed a lot in hip hop. I prefer him over Madlib. Shame.
