Cincinnati’s Buggs tha Rocka jumped on Skype recently with the good folks over at New Zealand’s online “When Did You Fall In Love With Hip Hop” to talk about his new album “Scattered Thoughts of an American Poet” and his development in the hip hop scene which has led him to be afforded the title “Best Hip Hop Artist of 2014” by the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards
They also discussed his live performances with Talib Kweli, whether at the A3C Festival for two years running or at the recent Eternal Reflection reunion show, the results of which are due to working with local pair Donte (MOOD) and Hi Tek from an early stage.
Buggs has of course released two previous mixtapes with Mac Miller’s tour DJ Clockwork, and he was invited to perform with the pair at the recent Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in Los Angeles which also saw sets by Pharrell Williams, Tyler the Creator, Rick Ross, Earl Sweatshirt, Murs, Action Bronson, Step Brothers, Vince Staples and many more
The publication’s Aleyna Martinez recorded the full interview and it is now streaming on Soundcloud
