Mild is a Chicago-native who provides occasional production for various artists, but primarily focuses on pushing his own solo/collaborative work out into the world. He has a solid body of work to display in the form of full-length beat-tapes as well as EPs. His forthcoming release, ‘COMA,’ is set to release February 23rd. Below is his most recent release as well as the one that introduced me to him.

this will be my second post about Blu Cap from L.O.C.A.L.$ on here brehs(my first post about Blu can be found here). except this time i’m here to give you my take on Blu’s first release of a body of work, ‘Though Exposure Vol. 1.
the project starts off with a mysterious yet familiar sample before it heads into the second track, ‘Stressed,’ where Blu trades bars with The Hooligan over an atmospheric vocally dominant instrumental.
the majority of the project features Blu’s vocals over several boom-bap instrumentals while every so often taking a break to abandon standard rhyme structure & switch to spoken word with little emphasis on the sound, but what he’s trying to convey to whoever’s listening. after this break Blu jumps into his single track, ‘Me’. the remainder of the project seems more for Blu himself to vent & simply voice things aloud, and whoever feels like they’d like to listen is welcome to. Blu touches on some personal situations involving a girl he feels may be the one he could see himself growing old with, ‘She,’ as well as a track paying homage to his hometown titled ‘Hello Chicago.’
my thoughts on the project as a whole is that Blu Cap has a voice and a audible demeanor that is pleasant to listen to over an instrumental. Blu also has a very apparent ability to shape & tell a story. i would only critique his delivery of those stories, because at some points without noticeable intention a track can be riding smooth then all of a sudden a bar will be slightly out of time, or lacking confidence making Blu seem more ‘green’ than he really is. that being said everyone has to start somewhere(started…)and i feel as though Blu Cap has a leg up on his competition on a lot of elements, and where he comes up a little short i believe he can develop and become a serious contender people won’t easily ignore. take a listen to Thought Exposure Vol. 1 below via Blu Caps soundcloud.
A 6’7 middle school talent whose potential is sky high. This kid is already above the rim dunking he is a good rebounder an his outside shot is improving. Look out for him in the class of 2018.
I have heard about scenarios of this happening in the last few years but haven’t fully looked into it since as of recent. A few years back XXL magazine had some issues with a Freshman class who all had a crazy following but many people didn’t know who most of them were which made no sense. The point of this isn’t about XXL or their suspect choices of talent. This is about the fact that artists are out their thinking there celebrities misleading people with there following. I seen a artist with a 40K following on twitter with a total of 1000 YOUTUBE views smh. It is obvious that the numbers don’t add up. I could see if they had like 2000 followers it would look more even but that 40k is drastic. You will see some artists with 14k twitter following and verified with 1000 instagram followers. I would say about 60 percent of these new artists is buying there following. In conclusion im just gonna say if you have a large following and people don’t know who you are does it even matter?
Experience a day in the life of Jon Connor as he does a show in Chicago followed by a radio interview & some in studio footage. Connor is by far the freshman stand out of 2011 if he doesn’t make the XXL Freshman list i will boycott the magazine because they have let a lot of trash cover their magazine so they should cover real talent.
This song right here is so raw Swagg words can’t explain. He keeps his brother Daze Dysh’s name alive who recently passed. Listen to the words his pain & anger this is deep. Im glad he Was able 2 shot a video for this so the world could see. Watch an share with others Brother like Brother the movement.
