Review
Carlos Steurer, 13.02.2012

Years before Californian Teenagers started yelling »Swag« into every microphone they passed while wearing too tight jeans and thereby killing off the complete coast for further rap-purposes, there was an album released which the wider public didn’t even notice. The year was 2007, and Blu & Exile’s Below The Heavens was a long-lasting, path breaking Hip-Hop-album. In the tradition of Gang Starr, EPMD and Pete Rock & CL, Blu & Exile soon founded a team consisting of a producer with clear ideas about sounds and songs and an über-talented, hungry MC, complementing each other perfectly. When Blu raps on In Remembrance Of Me: »My Mum said, that I was too young to make this song«, it’s probably due to the fact that no one’s ever heard a 22-years-old rapping as light-footedly, yet with utmost technical skills, about topics like teenage pregnancy or life after death. Exile’s soul-bombast serves as the perfect carrier for Blu’s day-dreamy poetry. Joe Tex, The O’Jay’s and Roberta Flack are processed in a unique, creative and enjoyably concealed way, placed into a Hip-Hop surrounding and and further contextualized by Blu with his personal history of a hard-working, aspiring artist full of soul and wisdom. Hence, he helped paving the way for a certain kind of vulnerability and the right amount of understatement – ubiquitous in today’s Hip-Hop – with tracks like Dancing In The Rain, which should even make the hardest gangster shed a couple of joyful tears. Now, five years later, the re-release proves us right in saying that Blu & Exile have created a timeless genre-classic and, almost as if passing by, have breathed new life into the West-coast and the whole rap-scenery. As annoying as all the Nas-comparisons, concerning debut-records by young lyricists, might be: To me, Below The Heavens is the same kind of life-changing album that Illmatic was to many others.
