Buggs-SagittariusHH

French journalist & hip hop head Sagittarius runs his own online publication “Reviews by Sagittarius”…or ‘Sagi Hip Hop’…covering a wide range of international releases

He is the latest to give his seal of approval to the new album “Scattered Thoughts of an American Poet” by Cincinnati’s Buggs tha Rocka which released on 10th December 2014, and is available as a free download from www.buggstharocka.com and also via the MyMixtapez App for mobile devices

The review notes the eclectic nature of the album, with many different productions and flavas added into the mix. At its core is the influences derived from hip hop’s Golden Era, but brought up to date with a contemporary twist augmented by some tru skool r&b and soul.

The fact that much thought has gone into the album’s concept…over a year in the making….is noted, as too are the contributions of the various producers and local artists. The blend of recognized names such as !llmind, Jake One, Tanya Morgan and Chuck Inglish sit easily beside emerging Cincinnati artists such as Hop Trax, Sal Dali, Aida Chakra and Phoenix Aphrodite. The article concludes that the release, with its fresh approach and quality, has marked the arrival of Buggs to a wider audience and as an artist to watch on the global stage in years ahead.
