Blu & Exile Release “In the Beginning: Before the Heavens”

In 2007, Blu and Exile came together to create the underground classic Below The Heavens. Now, ten years later, they share In the Beginning: Before the Heavens.


The project features 14 previously unreleased tracks from the sessions in 2007. They were chosen from over 40 songs that never saw the light of day. “Below the Heavens was about being underground, while comparing mainstream success to living in heaven,” Blu said in an interview with Billboard. “This is before that. The only thing that happened before God made the heavens and Earth [is God] says, ‘In The Beginning,’ so this is like the training wheels. I want Before the Heavens to be like a documentary, so to speak, to show the work we put into making the classic Below the Heavens.”


The project features appearances from Aloe Blacc, Donel Smokes, Trek Life, Cashus King (f.k.a. Co$$), Blame One, Dr. Oop, and Lyric Jones.

“Before They Were Famous” Playlist

Some of the best music in an artist’s discography occurs early in their journey to stardom. As a result, many classic tracks go unheard or under appreciated because they aren’t widely known.


Here’s a playlist dedicated to that idea. I’ll make additions to it as I continue to think of more artists.
