Blink released his debut album in April 2011 marking a huge stage in the career of the multi-talented rapper-songwriter and producer. The album, ‘The World is Small’, consists of 15 original songs from Blink plus a bonus track, each providing a combination of his versatile flow, melodious vocals and heartfelt lyrics. The music is punctuated throughout with elements of hip-hop, Afro-beat, and RnB. The album was recorded at The Ambulance factory Studios , and its production was done by the production team “Baron Boys” of After dreams development, who have produced for artists such as Drake, Young Chris, Nipsey Hustle, Bow Wow and Chicago Native “The boy illinois”.
