US online publication Dead End Hip Hop are the latest to run the rule over the new album “Scattered Thoughts of an American Poet” by Cincinnati rapper Buggs tha Rocka
In this review, written by Samuel Odunsi Jr, the eclectic mix of hip hop, r&b, soul and jazz present throughout the album is highlighted and commended. The album is a mix of Buggs’ own scattered thoughts about a variety of issues, and the production reflects the mood and his own diverse influences and tastes.
A year in the making, it was put together as a meeting of like minds, organically, and mixes the range of production styles from Illmind, Jake One, Kill Wil, Sal Dali and Hop Trax with the variance in delivery techniques by Tanya Morgan, Chuck Inglish, MOOD, Piakhan and includes soulful vocals from Aida Chakra, Phoenix Aphrodite and Pappadon.
Despite this approach, there is a coherent theme running throughout, as picked up by the reviewer in his summary :
“After my initial listen of the album, I was debating which section I enjoyed the most (the introductory tracks, the middle tracks, or the concluding tracks) and really I made no definitive choice. I instead came to the conclusion that I really enjoyed the whole album. In its entirety it felt focused and it properly maintained….if Scattered Thoughts Of An American Poet is only a precursor, then we need to brace ourselves for what Buggs will be bringing us in 2015.”
