Gods in the Spirit by Blu and Nottz is a solid release for 2013 and features some great hip hop music for fans to savor. This EP offering serves up some tight vibes at varying levels including beats, lyrics and production. Blu, a rapper hailing from the deep depths of Los Angeles has been described with good and bad words by critics but when fans sink into the music the story is told and the music on this release speaks for itself. No, it’s not all fantastic down the line but it’s tight and there are some bright gems. His efforts were cheered and applauded in 2007 for his musical works and offerings but in-between some say his works never truly won and received their dues and appreciation and the path has been difficult. Nottz has delivered some great hip hop music to fans and has dangled on strings of commercialism winning some acclaim for his work with other popular mainstream hip hop artists. Gods in the Spirit is a short 6 track EP and the result of Blu & Nottz linking up for an offering to the hip hop gods.
The opening track “Boyz II Men (feat. Nitty Scott MC)” hits hard featuring some cool vibes, sounds and tight lyrics. Not the most popular track on the EP but well delivered and a good way to set it off. Gods in the Spirit is something different that bombs fans with pure hip hop freshness and heat. On the surface of his work, Blu, comes a little harsh with a touch of agile dynamics and offensive abrasiveness. Check the track “God Shit” for clarity that speaks to that fact. When listening to the music it feels like there is sometimes, sprinkled in moments, some restriction when it comes to letting loose with the entire repertoire of feelings. Nottz and Blu in the eyes of some hip hop fans may have failed in serving up a hip hop masterpiece but this EP has some great hip hop tracks and still commands listening attention, don’t sleep.
Gods in the Spirit is a small offering loaded with some enjoyable hip hop music for the fans. The EP is available in many online retail spots and fans can pick it up for a few duckets at their local hip hop shop too. It’s not rare and hard to find, it’s new and popular. This release by Blu and Nottz, Gods in the Spirit is something to tune into, no doubt. Fans should enjoy the music on this release, especially “Creme of the Crop (feat. Versis & Scienze)” and “End of the World (feat. Rashad)”.
