Fatlip & Blu
Live From The End Of The World (Deluxe Edition)
PUT THIS IN YOUR DEN for an under the radar banger of an album. Two modern legends - one from the 90s and the other from the 10s - team up to put out one of the best hip hop albums of 2022 and records of 2023. As if having Fatlip and Blu collaborate on an album wasn't exciting enough, they brought out their friends for this one, showcasing some of the greatest MCs and producers in hip hop. Beats, rhymes, and flow are all amazing on this album. Check out the album closer featuring the late Gift of Gab (as well as Self Jupiter and Chali 2na).
Available on deluxe edition on black wax with two bonus tracks
As a member of seminal hip-hop group The Pharcyde, Fatlip helped expand the boundaries of the 1990s L.A. rap scene, releasing classic albums steeped in eccentric creative excursions rather than hard-edged gangsta bravado. Following in those footsteps, acclaimed emcee Blu has been at the forefront of the independent hip-hop landscape since the late 2000s, narrating the full range of experience in the City of Angels with impressive lyrical ingenuity. These two famed artists recently joined forces for the collaborative album Live From The End Of The World, a dazzling rhyme whirlwind boasting an overwhelming collection of West Coast lyrical talent, including Del The Funky Homosapien, Gift Of Gab, MC Eiht, and Ras Kass, along with members of iconic groups Jurassic 5, Tha Alkaholiks, Souls Of Mischief, Freestyle Fellowship, and Digital Underground. With production by Madlib, Nottz, Sa-Ra, Knxwledge, and Exile, the album is now available in physical form for the first time ever. This deluxe release includes two new bonus tracks featuring Slimkid3 (of The Pharcyde) and Pigeon John.
