"Give me flowers before i can still smell them", is an album i really needed to get. It takes me way from the tautological mainstream rap, about making it big and explaining it in detail. I guess that it is just deep rooted in the USA, where people idolize successful persons and rightfully so. The album expresses his humanity, a regular day in blu's life. It makes me think maybe blu and i are not so different. Blu really showcases his Kaleidoscope like poetry.In an interview he said this album was just him venting spitting verses, as exile made tracks for him. I can sympathize for people who dislike his lo fi music like JESUS which happens to be his favorite album.But like blu says if you like it, you like it, if you don't well you don't. When he links up with exile it has a potential to be a modern classic. Also it appeals to the mainstream because below the heavens was such a hit. Overall a really well articulated album with dope production. "More out of life" and "a Man" are my two favorite tracks.
