Blu Recording Session Truth Studios today for a half day. He brought the studio to the studio traveling with his full set up to export files. We recorded seven new songs, every session he blows my mind. Hard to understand how he does it every single time. He comes in with all of his songs written, usually does the whole song in less than 4 takes and does his doubles and adlibs on the first take almost ever time. We did a few different tracks from various producers then he told me he got a new batch of beats from Exile and my eyes went wide. Nothing like Blu and Exile together, Below the Heavens and Give Me My Flowers While I Can Still Smell Them are two amazing albums they created together.
We made 4 new songs over Exile production which made my day. Blu is one of my favorite rappers to work with, over the past 6 years mainly working with rappers it gets very old to have the same style of recording session almost every day. Blu is always a breath of fresh air, he’s got great energy and he’s very focused on his work. He comes alone, we zone in together and we get work done. I love those sessions, it’s very important to be productive and feel like we’re accomplishing work to create something together. Not interested in being paid to sit in a room while people write as the “engineer” when no work is really getting done.
Blu Recording Session Truth Studios is always special to me. Today was amazing.
