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.

Written in French, the full review can be read HERE

TimingIsEverything-SagittariusHH

It’s now nearly 2 weeks since Detroit MC Kid Vishis released his debut album “Timing is Everything” on Seven 13 Entertainment.

The younger brother of Royce da 5’9″ has enjoyed widespread international media coverage over the past couple of months, most recently by France’s online Sagittarius HH who have just published a new review which can be read HERE

Written in French, the review reflects on the fact that other than his brother on the final track “Coward”, there are no other featured artists, however “It represents his pedigree with an impressive lyrical density to the point that he has no need for guest appearances.” and presenting the explanation that as this is his debut, and clearly a deliberate approach this time around, it may be “because we feel that Timing is Everything is a very personal work.

The review also reflects the fact that the album is not necessarily what is expected, with only one Detroit producer, Mr Porter, providing beats along with California based Chase Moore, Canada’s Nick Zervos and New Jersey’s Nemisis, all of whom are providing a diversity of sound, even touching upon dubstep in the track “In Yo Face”, but never wavering from the core principles of lyricism & rhyme skills expected from a rapper influenced by the best from the Golden Age of hip hop.

Available internationally on Itunes & Amazon in digital format, CD’s of the album can also be bought directly from the label at www.seven13ent.com Check out the official audio stream on Soundcloud

Look out for further press coverage coming from the UK, Europe & USA in the next couple of weeks, including a special video feature in France’s Hip Hop 4 Life in the next few days. Currently in the middle of further media promotional activity as well as putting together tour dates for the UK, Europe & Canada, you can follow him on twitter @KidVishis.
