Success Is A Warm Tommy Gun

Starting the year with some hip-hop – this is about the best thing I’ve heard so far in 2012. It comes from an Atlanta artist named Bugus, who released his debut album 2020 in 2011 and he’s been winning some pretty decent praise from my favourite hip-hop blog, Earmilk. A true up-and-comer, 19-year-old Bugus is associated with the DIEMON label, who house a roster of young artists, including Russ and Musa SB. With a mature voice that sounds well-weathered in the hip-hop game, Bugus has the skills and will power to turn first-time listeners into believers. Blending the soul rhythms of New York giants The Roots and Ma$e with the awareness and sincerity of Chicago’s Common, Bugus has his influences down and his own voice well and truly focused. DIEMON released 2020 as a free download and they’ve just dropped a new Bugus track titled ‘Success’. You can grab both from the DIEMON website, along with a load of other free and legal downloads.
