Blu & Exile are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their classic Below The Heavens LP, and will bereleasing a prequel In The Beginning: Before The Heavens project this October. The crew is currently on tour celebrating in support of the anniversary and new project while teasing a new track as well.

Mass Appeal reports:

Ten years later the San Pedro MC and the Orange County producer —currently in the midst of 42-date 10th-anniversary tour—are now announcing the October 20 release of a new project: In The Beginning: Before The Heavens, the prequel to their 2007 underground classic Below The Heavens.

Comprising unreleased tracks from the original Below The Heavens sessions, In The Beginning picks right up with that same energy, and features appearances from Aloe Blacc, Co$$, Donel Smokes, and Blame One.

“We planted the seeds of creativity and grew about 40 plants,” Exile says of the release. “We picked the ones that we thought were the best for an album, but that didn’t mean that the other flowers weren’t beautiful. I’m super happy to re-release [In The Beginning] to people and have it actually get some attention that it definitely deserves. It’s amazing.”
