Rugz D. Bewler – Save Bewler: The Memoirs of Muhammad Mc’Fly
I got up on Rugz via the Ski Beatz producer vehicle 24 Hour Karate School. Dude is uniquely genuine, which says a lot about him. Not to make it that simplistic, but the lack of authentic individuality in hip hop, in most avenues, is a glaring issue. But there is no one doing it like his does it right now…plus he has other unique cats like Najee and Curren$y with him.
You’ll find yourself going back and “rewinding” some of the verses to catch all the references. When you can do this on most of the tracks, you have something viable and worthwhile. The soulful production (with some organic, live stuff mixed in) fits his flow, with some older heads like Ski, Scott Storch (?!)….as well as some new cats like ASAP and Grand Staff.
This has been in rotation for a couple days. Hopefully, we see an album soon. Highly recommended – downloadable everywhere.
