Los Angeles-based MC Blu has forged yet another partnership with producer Fate. Well known for his work with Exile, Blu has been steadily putting out music since the early 2000s. Earlier this year, he teamed up with producer Nottz for the EP, Titans In The Flesh, and is now gearing up to release a full-length with Fate, Open Your Optics To Optimism. With help from vocalist Dolphin and fellow MC Versis, the duo has delivered the first single, “Otionography,” which attempts to understand humans’ purpose on Earth.

Out September 28 via EveryDejaVu, Open Your Optics To Optimism features Open Mike Eagle, Milo, Choker, Khary (on a bonus song), and more.
