When industry vet Pete Rock personally passes you a fresh beat, what is there to do but blaze it and share the finished product with the world? That’s exactly what Blu did—and the result, The Clean Hand, is nothing short of stellar. Released via the artist’s Twitter Tuesday evening, this record finds West Coast underground mainstay dropping characteristically smooth, self-confident bars over the Big Apple beatsmith’s dreamy harp samples. This one-off release isn’t attached to any larger project, but fans can keep it locked for anything and everything Blu in the weeks and months ahead.
