"I definitely wanted the respect from [Below the Heavens]," he continued. "I just wanted people to hear me, and cats wonder who I am. And it did that plus more. Now I'm looking to step it up for the people."
In the year that followed, Blu fully indulged his "raw MC-type shit" with The Piece Talks and Johnson&Jonson. If neither album approaches Below the Heavens' spiky brilliance, they at least confirmed that Blu's lyrical talent was undeniable.

With U-N-I, Richie Cunning, and Fashawn
