They have today featured the new album “Scattered Thoughts of an American Poet” by award winning Cincinnati MC Buggs tha Rocka, providing a full review written by Sam Bennett combined with the exclusive full album audio stream

The review which summarizes “Buggs Tha Rocka has delivered a quality offering here, with dope rhymes, dope beats and a unique approach. After listening through to the 19 tracks on display here, it’s no wonder a shock that legends like Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek are throwing their weight behind the Cincinnati MC, and his knack for spitting well structured bars over a selection of pretty chilled instrumentals will definitely stand him in good stead…One thing is for sure though; this kid can definitely rap.” can be read in full HERE

The album includes production by !llmind, Jake One, Hop Trax, Sal Dali & Kill Will, and features Chuck Inglish, Tanya Morgan, MOOD, Piakhan, Phoenix Aphrodite & Aida Chakra. It will be available as a free download on Wednesday 10th December from www.buggstharocka.com and also via the My Mixtapez App available for all mobile devices.
