On Bugus’ last feature, he pondered a question first posed by the immortal Tupac Shakur, wondering “Is there heaven for a G?” While his latest promo single, 187, draws its name from the section of the California penal code dealing with homicide (By way of Dre and Snoop, of course), I’m happy to say the Atlanta rhymesayer won’t be finding out the answer to that question anytime soon. In fact, the only thing getting killed here is DIEMON labelmate Russ’ dreamy synth-vocal beat, which Bugus laces with complex bars detailing his determination to succeed and his love for the Buddha. (That’s the weed strain, not the bodhisattva.) This understated, lyrically on-point street banger isn’t attached to any larger project, but those digging it can download their very own copy free of charge via DIEMON Records’ official site.
