“What you do when you’re name’s Blu?” Great question. In this case, you release The Return, a second helping from your forthcoming full-length. Over Bombay‘s soulful foundation with minimally triumphant brass tabs, the West Coast emcee and producer asks a series of questions, all of which can be answered by the cold reality that no matter the location, for many, gang banging is the end all be all. Sadly, as an uncredited hook singer intimates, you just have to hope that your loved ones are present (and breathing) the next morning. Featuring previously-released single The West and much more, be sure to cop Blu’s new double album, Good To Be Home, due out May 20, via Nature Sounds.
