Cincinnati’s Buggs tha Rocka re;eased his new album “Scattered Thoughts of an American Poet” this week, available as a free download from www.buggstharocka.com and also via the My Mixtapez App for mobile devices which in the space of 48 hours has received around 30,000 hits already.

There has been much international media interest in the release and artist over the past few weeks, which has seen Buggs conduct interviews with publications based in the USA, UK, Europe and New Zealand, and is in fact still doing so.

The latest press coverage comes from the UK, in the form of an interview with Rough Online and an album review by PopCulturez.

Buggs-RoughMagazine

In the feature published by Rough, Buggs discusses his earlier releases such as Mutant Level 5 which featured Little Brother, Sa-Ra, Freeway & London’s S.A.S., and his mixtape releases with DJ Clockwork, including The Wrath of Zeus. He speaks on the recognition he has received from his home city, having been named “Hip Hop Artist of 2014” at the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards and addresses the hip hop scene there, and those who have paved the way for others to follow.

The topic of discussion then switches to the re-emergence of lyricism in hip hop, a bi product of the throwback to the Golden Era which took place in the worlds of fashion, music and culture, and how he developed a working relationship over the past couple of years with Talib Kweli as well as his recent sit down with Pharrell Williams in Los Angeles.

Buggs-PopCulturez

PopCulturez is a multi faceted online covering most forms of music as well as other popular cultural outlets such as tv, lifestyle, film and news.

Their summarized style review concludes “Lyrically, Buggs delivers his thoughtful yet personal, at times autobiographical rhymes over heavy beats, samples and a frequent jazz tinted vibe…at 19 tracks in length, and clocking in at well over an hour, this offers some genuine bang for your buck.
