Producer Exile has been quiet as of late, but today he releases a album stream of his latest project Zip Disks & Floppies. Using the MPC 2000 Exile let’s producers and rappers know that he’s still here and uses one of the classic beat making machines. Still one of my favorite producers, but you can stream the entire project which can be found after the jump.
Blu has flooded the web over the last few years, and I for one am NOT complaining. Bouncing off collaboration projects with MED & Madlib and a EP with MC Anthm Blu takes us back to his 2012 project Give Me My Flowers While I Can Still Smell Them with the visuals for his Ease Your Mind joint.
Homeboy’s Chimera EP drops next month but enjoy this Exile produced track. Like what you hear? Check out the tracklisting down below.

Had no idea this was coming, Blu & Exile gives us an album stream of their forthcoming “give me my flowers while i can smell them,” album. Circa and recorded back in 1999, but here’s the entire stream which can be ordered for $15. Support real hip hop.
“Face In Disguise” is Build Jewelz reconstituted by Has-Lo and Exile.
Exile lends this track an intense musical backdrop full strings and monastic chanting that brings out a religious tone that matches Has-Lo’s lyrical prose. So…basically…Hope and faith are pitted against an unyielding external reality that Has-Lo depicts with the wordplay of a virtuoso. Existential enough for you?
