When you here in Atlanta, your mind might be tempted to go into the dark, psychedelic-designed trap hell house, but let me take you from that side and bring you to the light where a certain hip-hop agent who goes by the name Blu Black has been engineering another earworming style of hip hop music that has been cutting across musical generations. While pushing the boundaries of creative art and of self-expression, it is safe to say that the future of rap music is in safe hands—in Blu Black’s hands!
From his side of musicianship, a listener gets treated to some deft arrangements blended with melodious lyricism and supplemented with pristine production to fashion a near-conscious style of rap that somehow bridges the gap between the old school and the new school!
Blu Black’s new jam “Ainnuh” has been on heavy rotation everywhere; no cap, this track is 100% next level and one of the most melodious rap songs I have listened to this year. His fourth single and the first of 2023, it is just amazing how Blu Black just keeps getting better—”Ainnuh” is sound design and dexterous lyricism at their best.
Featuring a guest performance from one of the realest Atlanta lyricists, Skooly, these bros really ate this tune up and left no crumbs. I have been playing it on repeat, and it just gets better; you can’t make this stuff up!
The low-end booming basslines blended with the consistently rhythmic drums, the mid-range percussion, and synths, not forgetting the colorful 808s, give off that futuristic vibe, and the simplicity with which they have been designed, albeit with keen attention to detail, allow Blu Black’s melodious vocals to flourish.
No matter what type of genre you subscribe to, Blu Black’s way of delivery just has to appeal to you—when he sings, he raps, and when he raps, he sings—and you don’t get to experience this every Tuesday; this is a field that very few excel in, and that’s why Black deserves his flowers for seeming so effortless while at it!
The music video is a high standard of visual cinematography that perfectly supplements this masterpiece both in apologue and design, and it is thus no fluke that it already has over 42K YouTube views in such a short period of time since it was released.
“Ainnuh” is a bona fide standout, and if you somehow still doubt me; how about you give it a try by following the attached link. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to subscribe to Blu Black’s YouTube channel, give the stunning visual a thumbs up, and leave a comment below it. Let’s go!
