This one is for everyone waiting on Blu and Exile’s sophomore joint project, Memoirs. “When Nothing’s Left” stems from the producer-turned-rapper’s upcoming album, 4TRK MIND, and it just might be one of the best tracks you listen to today. As if hearing Blu rap over Exile’s feel-good, Otis Redding-sampling production wasn’t enough, there’s a special treat for old-school heads on the third verse. I’m not going to ruin the surprise, but it should leave a pretty huge smile on your face. As should the beat and the first two verses from Ex and Blu, respectively.
