Blu + Shafiq Husayn: New Album “Out Of The Blue”

Famed emcee Blu and Grammy-winning producer/musician Shafiq Husayn have a storied history of collaboration, ranging from several tracks on Blu’s experimental masterpiece York to the stellar joint mixtape The Blueprint. Now, the two Los Angeles artists are elevating their partnership to a new level with the new album Out Of The Blue. “The Blueprint was just me rhyming over some of Shafiq’s beats that I found online,” Blu explains. “This time we were actually in the studio together. We’ve been working together since 2008, but this is our first official album.” With a March 29th release date fast approaching, Out Of The Blue is now available for pre-order on CD, standard LP, and “Blue Surf Edition” colored vinyl.

Entirely produced by Shafiq Husayn, Out Of The Blue features appearances by MED, Exile, Chuuwee, Thurz, Speed Walton, and Freestyle Fellowship members Myka 9 and Self Jupiter. As excitement grows, Blu and Shafiq are debuting “Roll Up”, the album’s latest single. With a memorable hook by Jimetta Rose and guest verses from Donel Smokes and Tiron, the hypnotic track celebrates the high life, conjuring a smoke‑filled dreamscape over lush production. Check it out now on all digital outlets.
