Blu, MED, Oh No and Madlib Thrive on New Song “The Turn Up”
Back in October 2015, MED, Blu and Madlib joined forces to drop Bad Neighbor via Bang Ya Head Entertainment. The 15-song LP was fantastic, combining Madlib's rich production with Blu and MED's lyrical prowess. Recently, an unreleased record from Bad Neighbor hit the web. The song, titled "The Turn Up" featuring Oh No, will make hip-hop fan's heart flutter as Blu and MED rap their asses off over a eerie loop that was probably sampled from a movie. Spin the track below.
"My kinfolk keep his window locked/My other kin is trying to kick his window in/Bad neighbors/The homies, they done misbehavior'd/So you know the flow won't got major unless they kick the paper/From out a corporate skyscraper/And that's where we kick the industry's doors in," raps the former XXL Freshman Blu. Both Oh No and MED provide excellent verses as well.
Bad Neighbor was the first full length project from MED, Blu and Madlib as a group. The project is available now on iTunes and features guest appearances by Anderson .Paak, MF DOOM, Aloe Blacc, Mayer Hawthorne and Oh No among others. The trio had previously worked together and released two 2013 projects The Burgundy Whip EP and The Buzz EP. Hopefully they will get together for Bad Neighbor 2 sometime soon. Blu, meanwhile, was recently captured in the studio with Exile again. Hopefully they've got new music on the way as well.
