Blu – “Titans in the Flesh” review

3 years after their first collaborative EP Gods in the Spirit, famed LA underground MC Blu & Soul Council producer Nottz get back together for a follow-up that is MUCH more consistent than it’s predecessor. You’re still getting the usual conscious lyrics but the production is a lot more soulful, the guest verses aren’t as scattered around on nearly every single track & the mixing is a lot more clearer on here compared to the half-assed mixing on that Bad Neighbor album Blu did with M.E.D. & Madlib last year. And as you may or may not know, Blu has been dealing with some mental issues since the very beginning of the year but I think he’s really taking care of those issues because he sounds really focused & confident throughout this EP. Other than the track To the East sounding like an outdated outtake from the Gods in the Spirit sessions, this is a very solid first step for Blu getting back on track

Score: 4/5
