Review: So Cal beatsmith, Exile's protege and all round beat battle champ Sirplus make his Dirty Science Records debut with this sizzling 7" inspired by Brandy and the character she played on the hit '90s show Moesha. He reworks the beats majestically well producing 2 bright and contemporary instrumental tracks that cannot fail to make a mark at any party, proving that his beats can stand alone and hold a standard even without vocals.
The American Dream (feat Miguel & The Last Artful Dodgr - part 2) (4:22)

Review: In 2007, Blu & Exile released an album that went on to make a seismic effect. This is the long anticipated follow up with another carefully curated list of collaborators such as CD Armstrong, Jacinto Rhines, Fashion and many more. It is a long record that muses on the social and cultural forces that shape all of us, with the LA backpack rapper in fine form as the Dirty Science producer serves up some lush beats. There are jazzy instrumentals, but also tracks that dig into each artists heritage such as the afro sounds of "Requiem Of Blue". With its stunning sampling and broad array of styles, this is stunning record.
