Give Me My Flowers While I Can Still Smell Them

Give Me My Flowers While I Can Still Smell Them is the second collaborative album by American rapper Blu and hip-hop producer Exile who are commonly referred to as Blu & Exile. The album was released on December 16, 2011, via Bandcamp. Recording sessions took place over the course of 2009, however the duo decided to keep the release on hold due to bad audio quality and officially re-released the album on September 4, 2012 with a new updated track listing. The album features guest contributions from Fashawn, Homeboy Sandman, Johaz of Dag Savage, Black Spade of Hawthorne Headhunters, and ADAD.[1][2][3]

The album was highly sought after within hip hop circles, especially following the success of Blu & Exile's debut Below the Heavens. Upon its release, it received generally favourable reviews, however there were several complaints from journalists and fans alike regarding the audio quality of the album. In an attempt to quell fans' frustrations both Blu and Exile released an official high-quality version in 2012.
