Blu x Bombay x Arima Ederra - "Summertime"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Blu and Bombay have been long at work on their collaborative album Good To Be Home. While we still don't have a release date, the two have dropped a new track featuring vocalist ArimaEderra on the hook. "Summertime" is a fresh take on The Fresh Prince and DJ Jazzy Jeff's classic barbecue jam (more on them in aminute!) though Blu focuses on life in California rather than Will Smith's West Philly. It also sounds like the sample flips the fat synth solo on the amazing live versionKool & The Gang's "Summer Madness" which provided the Fresh & Jeff version with its natural aphrodisiac. Blu has already flatly stated that this album will be his best to date and based on the few tracks already leaked, we're definitley anxious to hear the full record. Stream the track below and stay tuned for more information on the release of Blu and Bombay's much anticipated LP.
