Cincinnati’s Buggs tha Rocka releases his new album “Scattered Thoughts of an American Poet” tomorrow, Wednesday 10th December 2014, and will be available as a free download from www.buggstharocka.com and via the My Mixtapez App for all mobile phone devices.
There has been widespread international media interest in the release, and the latest reviews reflect that fact with the coverage in the USA’s Rap Essence and the UK’s DataTransmission
Rap Essence provide a track by track breakdown in their reviews, and afford the overall album a rating of 3.5 /5 summarizing “The production is really nice and varied throughout, with songs ranging from breezy samples (“Scattered Thoughts Intro”) to boom-bap bangers (“Religiously”) to electronica-inspried instrumentals (“Moments Slowed Down”)…As far as the rhymes go, Buggs Tha Rocka can definitely spit and changes up the subject matter on almost every song.”

The review concludes “These early insights into his dexterity as an artist suggest that Buggs’ reputation will continue to grow in the future, and quite possibly to a mass audience given his multi dimensional musical approach. He will certainly be hard to ignore on the evidence of this release” and can be read in full HERE
