Blu was brought up back and forth between a reservation life & a small town located in Saskatchewan CA. Blu has overcome multiple addictions and shares his experiences through music. Today Blu continues to spread the message through motivational performances across Canada and has also been creating a new fan base in America. The strong and inspirational lyrics that Blu delivers has brought him from the basement to the stage. Since he began in 2008, over the years of making beats, writing lyrics, mixing and mastering his own music Blu has studied for the best sound quality and always found a way to come back to the hip hop music scene with more improvement.
