Blue Scholars – Bayani Redux

On September 1st, Blue Scholars will be re-releasing one of my favorite albums, Bayani. The 2007 version, out on Rawkus/Massline, is out of print. Bayani Redux will be re-released on Duck Down to get it back out again. As you can see from the art above, it has a slightly different cover (I LOVE the color scheme) and will feature 3 more songs. Two of those songs were previously released on Digital EPs (“27” and “Southbound”). The last is a brand new track entitled “The Dawn Song” and features the Canadian rapper Shad (who is pretty dope).

So besides the artwork and the new track, there isn’t a lot here, which is somewhat dissapointing for me. I’ve been waiting 2 years+ since Bayani for some more material and we’ve gotten a couple of new tracks and the OOF! EP. Another new full length is apparently in the works so me and the other scholars fans are gonna have to sit tight.
