and the one thing that makes me constantly shake my head is HOW BLU BLEW IT!!!!!!!! Aww man....Blu should be what everyone is viewing Kendrick Lamar as, especially to the West..It's as if dude just didn't want it
Yeah, seems to be a lack of motivation with Blu. Between supposedly putting on terrible live shows and releasing a bunch of half assed music that barely sounded finished, he kind've hurt himself.
And then there was this tweet from ?uestlove when the Roots Undun album came out......
"All you Blu RTs: every verse under went major scrutiny (@phontigallo wrote about 16 verses before we were happy) not only was he NOT in the parameters of the #UNDUN narrative but he pretty much gave up after 2 attempts. We are not in the business of hunting someone down. We are in the business of building the perfect machine. This is how we operate. Can't afford "yes men" this late in our career. Even as leaders of the group Riq & I aren't above critique (being told to go back & redo stuff countless times) perhaps next project we can have another go round w/ Blu. We're fans still."
