Blu (of Blu and Exile) Gets Proper "Jesus" Release

Recently, a mysterious album titled Jesus turned up on the popular music site Bandcamp, uploaded by an artist calling himself "B". Soon, the LP was discovered to be the latest work from enigmatic L.A. rapper Blu, and within hours, it was the talk of the blogosphere. The album was soon removed, but now it's back, this time in physical form. New World Color is proud to present the latest lo-fi masterpiece from one of hip-hop's most intriguing figures, in stores everywhere on August 30th, 2011.

Featuring production from Madlib, Alchemist, and Hezekiah, and an appearance from Planet Asia, Jesus features some of the most intriguing collaborations of Blu's career.  With fully mastered audio, plus CD and vinyl editions, this important edition to Johnson Barnes' catalog will finally be heard as it was meant to be. Officially the debut for alter-ego "B", Jesus is sure to satisfy the cult-like fanbase that's been steadily growing around the artist most famously known as Blu.

PR: Zero Star - "Don't Look Now" EP


From Wanja Large:

Zero Star - "Don't Look Now" EP

The feeling you got when you first heard Show and AG's classic track "Next Level," is the same exact feeling Columbus, Ohio's Zero Star hopes to give listeners on his new project "Don't Look Now!"  Zero Star takes an unconventional approach, in a conventional rap world, while an unknown but extremely talented producer by the name of J Maggz provides the backdrop.  The man who claims to be from "The Rewind Era," gives plenty of rewind moments through this 8 song EP.  With raps by the hundreds Zero takes listeners on a fast paced journey of emotional highs, whether it's his motivational undefeated slogan "72 Dolphins," or the infectious bounciness of "#1 With a Bullet."  Zero is out to make certain his name will soon be mentioned alongside your favorite underground emcees.

About Zero Star:
Raised by wolves in a remote jungle in the rainforests of Brazil, is where a young wolf pup named Zero Star would hone his howling skills.  In wolf culture howling skills translate into what we know in the human world as “rapping ability.”  In one verse Star can take the listener through a number of regions with his ever changing flow, cadence, and rhyme pattern.  He uses his delivery in such a manner; it’s as if his voice is another instrument.   It doesn’t take the listener long to hear the influence of the 90’s in his music.  While that influence is a consistent theme, it never feels overbearing to the ear.  In fact, to hear it brings nostalgia that most hip hop has been missing.  Zero is an artist that looks to his past, to bring awareness to his present, and make way for his future.

On stage Zero brings full energy in every song.  He prides himself on never having a hype man on stage.  You are compelled to move and nod your head while Zero bounces around on stage with supreme confidence.  He believes less is more, so when you see him on stage often times it’s nothing more than two turntables and a microphone.  He’s always looking to keep the crowd involved, making you feel as if you’re hanging out with two hundred of your best friends.   

In 2006, Zero released his debut LP “Forever’s Never Really That Long,” on Weightless Recordings.  With a newcomer by the name of Ree-Dic, and underground champion Blueprint at the forefront of the production, the album received warm responses from critics and listeners everywhere.  However, due to some legal setbacks he wasn’t able to continue the momentum gained from the album.  In 2009, he was the opener on the Diabolical Fun Tour with world renowned lyricist Illogic.  With 2011 on the horizon this looks to be Zero Star’s biggest year.  With a new project “Don’t Look Now,” set to drop in the summer, and the long awaited second album to follow, Zero Star will be a name that avid music listeners will be saying very soon.  Catch the man from “The Rewind Era,” in a city near you this summer and fall.

The hustle is something I take pride in. This short doc trailer is a prelude to an entire film that will hopefully be complete by the end of 2011. It will be submitted to film festivals and hopefully be sold for a million dollars. (or millions... I'll take millions)
