Another one from the Reebok Classics and Rock The Bells ‘Classic Album By Classic Artist’ series.

In 2005, Common released his sixth studio album, and second gold record, Be. In describing the album’s concept shortly after its release, he said, “I named it Be to be who you are, man, and be able to be in the moment and not try too hard. Be is another way of saying just do without trying hard, like I said, natural and be true to the core of who you are; and this album, I wanted to just be and not just go and exist as just an artist, not worried about the past.

Blu is putting his beats on full display, with the production album Open, to be released on September 27th, 2011 through New World Color / Nature Sounds. Originally posted online as a Blu-produced instrumental set, Open has been transformed into a full-fledged production album.
Featuring a slew of promising up-and-comers on the mic, Open is a perfect showcase for Blu’s hazy, lo-fi production. Along with two show-stopping appearances from Blu himself, the album features buzzed-about MCs like Fresh Daily, ScienZe, and Sene, as well as newer names like Just Lee and Tribe of Levi.
