doja - the beat connoisseur
Very dope Hip-Hop music. Positive lyrics, dope delivery, with a feel good essence. I enjoyed this album and I keep it in rotation with music from The States. Shit is good.
Favorite track: Worthy ft. Tyler Daley (Prod. Stu Bangas).
With this jewel of an album, renaissance man Juga-Naut is back to claim his title as the undisputed heavyweight champion. The ultimate rapper’s rapper, this project showcases soul, lyricism, cultural critique, history, legacy, vision and style. At an age where others have fallen by the wayside, Jugz, at 30, is clearly now just hitting his stride. Self-produced except for some help by the powerhouse producer Stu Bangas on ’Worthy’ and ‘One Tonne’, ‘Bem’ calls on cream of the crop UK soul artists Liam Bailey and Tyler Daley, crowd favourites Vandal Savage and Tommy Nova, as well as talented upcoming British emcees Taja and Oliver Rees to complement and enhance this offering. Virtuoso Jugz gives you a grown up album, opening the door to the new decade in his life and for the culture. This album is his birthday present to you.
This album is best listened to in 2020 before you ask Jugz if he's still doing music. This album was mostly recorded wearing some kind of Ralph Lauren item while drinking double-shot Lavazza Americano's. If you burn this album to CD-R and play it in a red Subaru estate, you will evolve.
