Blu and Exile win my award for the work horses of SXSW. I think they were at almost every showcase I was, and they were performing, not chillin’. The video above was at the Blacksmith showcase Thursday night, which was the first time I saw the two. By Saturday night, everyone’s voice seemed to be shot. I can’t imagine Blu’s voice would be much different, because I know guys like Mickey Factz’ and Outasight’s were.

Any time I saw Exile take part in a cipher, whether it was on the streets or on stage, he was the designated beatboxer (for obvious reasons I’m sure). Is there anything he can’t do?

Hit the jump for Blu’s freestyle over Exile’s beatboxin’.
