Miami, FL â€“ Ever since news hit the streets and the net that Poe Boy recording artist Billy Blue was releasing his next mixtape, the anticipation rose to an all time high. His last mixtape â€˜36 Reasons: Reloaded’ was at the top of the list as the hottest mixtape for the entire summer of 2010 causing a huge commotion amongst the industry. Literally months later, first quarter 2011, Blue is already set to release the next phenomenal mixtape full of brand new material interestingly entitled â€˜Blumanatti.’
Following the sudden leak of â€˜Go Gangsta,’ rumors behind the release were already looming in the air. The single was then released days later as it was obvious the world couldn’t wait. Blumanatti is said to be the mixtape to surpass that of ’36 Reasons: Reloaded,’ last year’s street album that set Billy Blue apart from everyone else. From the Miami Emcee’s perspective, this mixtape deals more on a personal side of his life that very few people know about. Through his inspirations, he allows his fans to step into his mind as he tells you stories about his past, present, and future. With production from literally the hottest beatmakers in the industry today, his elemental delivery blends right into the beat. With â€˜The Renegades behind the helm on â€˜Go Gangsta’ alone, it already sets the tone for what the world is definitely patiently waiting for. Features on the mixtape include Mannie Fresh, Young Chris, Jimmy Dade, and labelmates Brisco and Ghostwridah. â€˜Blumanatti’ is hosted by Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes, DatPiff.com, 24HourHipHop.com and Poe Boy Music Group with the mixing talents of DJ Smokey Bear.
As far as his styles and influences, Blue states that: â€œWhat sets me apart from everyone in this game is my life experiences. I have been through so many crazy struggles and I rap about things I know â€“ things I have been through. I am another normal person from the streets, rap was NOT my life â€“ it was not something that I was destined to do, it is something that saved me from this messed up life that I have lived. I have regrets but I was trying to survive, I am thankful that I do not have to live that life anymore and I promise to give back once I make it.â€
â€˜Blumanatti’ has been scheduled to be released on March 1st to Hip-Hop media outlets across the net, including right here on The305.com. If you’re in Miami, the official release party will be held at Sobe Live on Saturday, March 5th. Many artists are scheduled to in the building including the entire Poe Boy Family.
