Give Me My Roses While I Can Smell Them, Blu and Exile 2012
First time success struck huge when Blu and Exile teamed up on Below The Heavens. If you don't have that album and you're in need of a classic, open another tab and get that now! Soulful samples combined with Blu's flow/stories made enough people notice that Blu ended up working with Madlib on Jesus. Exile has done well for himself working on features like Emanon (with Aloe Blacc prior to Below The Heavens) and produced tracks for Mobb Deep, Kardinal Offishall, Fashawn, Ghostface, Pharoahe Monch, MED, Snoop Dogg among others.
This is the duos sophomore album and its more evidence that there is still high quality hip hop out there. You just have to look harder (or come to the RA-NYC blog). Downloard here!
