Although he represents a coast across the country from Amityville, Long Island, Blu is definitely a De La Soul disciple. Johnson Barnes’ vulnerability, his love of far-reaching concepts, interludes and skits are surely inspired by Posdnuos, Maseo, and Dave (as well as Prince Paul). A lover of Jazz, Funk, and traditional Hip-Hop, Blu reps that Native Tongues purity nicely, in the 2000s.

“3 Feet Higher” is by no means a cover. It is, however, a psychedelic audio trip that would fit right in with the Da.I.S.Y. Age.
