Blu Talks 'No York!', Confirms U-God Guest Appearance

Blu talks his upcoming 'No York!' LP and confirms work with U-God.

Left coast indie heavyweight Blu recently caught up with KSJS to discuss his upcoming fourth studio release No York!, which is due out this summer on Warner Bros/Sire. DX's 2007 Rookie of the Year said that he feels his latest project and Warner Bros debut follows in the same thematic vein as his previous efforts.

"We have the No York! album dropping this summer," he said. "It's pretty heavy. We're at some stages of trying to figure out how exactly we want to release it, but it's a pretty heavy album. It's one of my favorite records. It reminds me of my first three records all in one, Below the Heavens, the Blu and Ta'rach C.R.A.C. record and the Blu and Mainframe Johnson&Johnson joint."

Blu also confirmed that he would be reuniting with one-time collaborator U-God of the Wu-Tang Clan for No York!. He said that he was so excited to worth with Baby U that he almost got inked up with the Wu's logo.

"I've got U-God on the new album," he explained. "I was about to get a Wu-Tang tattoo...I was so amped."

The full interview can be seen below.

    Musician yes guitar player yes. Just moved back to Hollywood California. Material is done for an album just about, but I am also offering my guitar servies for studio session work, gigs for people needing a guitar player, touring, or even joining or starting a band. Don't ou know how many artists are going with the live band sound these days? I'm still all about the dj's and producers making beats but lets put some live guitar over that stuff rather it be in the studio or live on stage. Here is the link to my youtube channel here you will see things like soul from a guitar player, and a tribute to people like 2 pac, jimi hendrix, and yes even Michael Jackson. Check it out let me know if your interested. My email is Thank you, Bryant C

    U-God can spit, plus his delivery has always been hard as a jackhammer. My Wu-Tang tattoo looks sick though!Everybody should have one.

      I also rock a Wu tat, but it's not my best tattoo. The other hip-hop related tatts I have are better; the Illmatic logo, Diamond D's Stunts, Blunts & Hip Hop LP logo and a couple of Doom tattoos, the Black Bastards hangin' coon effigy and Operation: Doomsday album cover. Next stop, Akinyele's Vagina Diner.
