    Summary

    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.

    Comment: After hearing so many folk diss this record I was apprehensive about picking it. But since purchasing the wax its been on non-stop, the sound is low-fi dusty and not polished, but I really like it. Its strange as I read folk moaning about such&such polishing their sound, but then you get a dusty old feeling LP like this and moan about that too!!!!

    Comment: Wu Tang's 1st album and Jungle Brothers Done by The Forces of Nature sounded like shit sound quality wise but they still became classics. My honest opinion is when it sounds to clean or crystal clean it's not hip hop anymore. It's mainstream.

    Comment: Man! This is what it's all about!! Underground Hip Hop! Complain about living room beats? Come on men, that's the goal! It has to sound lo-fi but samples are well chosen. Those melodies are reminiscent. They have the good old home made underground hip hop vibe and that's what it's all about. If your seeking Little ass wayne go to the radio.

    Comment: This is for me one of the best lp from Blu aka B. Regarding the sound quality, this lp has been made with a low-budget. But still it is a masterpiece.

    Comment: I think we can all agree that we'd love to hear a brand new shiny and polished studio album from Blu but on the real...this album is fuckin dope yo! I love the gritty ass jazzy soul beats. Much better than "Her Favorite Colour" in my salty ass opinion. You're my boy Blu!!!

    Comment: What are these? Living room recordings? Nature Sounds is just capitalizing off of Blu right now, releasing whatever material they can get their hands on. It would have been a decent album if it was recorded in a studio.

    Comment: let this here project serve as a commercial for the importance of at least DECENT sound quality for your music. becuz even a veteran killer like Blu sounds like a halfass message board rapper when his sound quality aint up to par. I cant dig this...

    Comment: I guess bad mixing and recording were the main problems of it cause some vocals still sound like shit, no matter how good the master is.
