Scattered Thoughts of an American Poet
Cincinnati’s Buggs The Rocka’s newest CD Scattered Thoughts of an American Poet contains 19 philosophical and musically layered tracks. Though Buggs Tha Rocka doesn’t sound like Q-Tip or Eazy-E, there is a comparison to the tonal and rhythm qualities of those two rappers. They had/have a unique storytelling ability that places listeners on the edge of their seats. Buggs Tha Rocka also has this ability to lead you through his journey. He demonstrates a sharp sense of musicality with tight jazz and electronica infusions. Scattered Thoughts juxtaposes raw language of the streets and female vocals, jazz, and bluesy instrumentals, which creates mature raps that transcend the quality of most radio played rap and hip hop. Introspective and humorous, this two-time Cincinnati Entertainment Award Hip Hop Artist of the Year will play the Sunday of next month’s Bunbury Music Festival.
