After Below the Heavens, Blu had a massive hyped behind him being one of the few to truly drop a modern classic. Why wasn't he able to go mainstream? He had most of the qualities, he can deliver a singing hook without sounding forced or terrible (The Narrow Path, O Heaven). He can create tracks that are catchy and radio friendly yet not sound dumb down (Blu Colla Worker, First Things First). Hell, he even had the backing of Miguel behind him. How was he not able to go mainstream?

"For what it's worth I almost blew up, but I heard y'all, had to kick back, wipe my smirk off."
Sorry if the lyrics are a bit wrong

He has also talked about this plenty of times

Blu fucked up his chances of going anywhere due to drug use. That's the reason most of his projects after Below Heavens sound like shit cause he smoking himself retarded with the dust he was on. A very sad story but he can only blame himself for it.
