NEW MIXTAPE: @Blay_Vision - Turner Ave. - [@LITCITYTRAX]
Blay Vision has given us a number of tracks from his project 'Turner Ave.' in the build up to it's official drop, and the UK scene has now been blessed with this sick work of art. The London MC is a man of many talents, from high quality production to the coldest bars, and he has showcased his talent on his finest piece of work to date.
The 13 track project dropped earlier this month, and has seen an amazing response. This year alone Blay has picked up half a million streams, and this number is definitely going to continue it's growth. I'm sure he has more music in the pipeline, but right now it is all about 'Turner Ave.' and you definitely need to take this one.

As you can see from the list below, for the majority of the project Blay is going in over his own beats, and this is clear through the sonics. He sounds extremely comfortable throughout the project. It seems he has been selective with those who have contributed to this mixtape. With only 4 producers contributing, including himself, and one featuring MC. We see Mazza, Teeza and the Midlands very own, multi-talented creative, Infamous Dimez on production. These 3 have built strong reputations as producers, and you can see why they are held in such high regard through their music.
For me to have one feature on a 13 track mixtape is a difficult move to pull off but Blay has executed it perfectly. To have JME on the project alone is a huge statement and will draw heads, but to have him as the only feature let's the listeners know that only the cream of the crop could work on 'Turner Ave.'
To celebrate the drop Blay linked up with Logan Sama for his BBC Radio 1 residency and passed through the studios for a quick session. Another expert move as he name continues to reach a much wider audience. Check it out above.
