Cali producer Exile introduced the world to rapper Blu on their 2007 collaborative album Below The Heavens, one of the year's best. Next up, Exile is producing Boy Meets World, the debut from Fresno, CA MC Fashawn, which drops on October 22. If Exile on the beats doesn't sell you, then how about this: Alchemist reportedly called 20-year-old Fashawn a "West Coast Nas." Oh, and he recently went on a European tour with Evidence, who also appeared in his last video. Phew! Okay, enough producer co-signs, we believe you. This kid is dope! [DJ Booth via NahRight]
