23 January 2015: Bugzy - No New Jack: Collectors Edition

Bugzy hails from North Haighlands in Sacramento and you might remember him from Self Made group projects (self titled from 2000 and "Flight 420" from 2001) as well as his own albums (self titled and "Get Breaded Mixtape" from 2004, "No New Jack" from 2007). Last year we mentioned that he's coming out with a brand new solo called "The Kings Bible", but as far as I know it never dropped; Instead, he decided to re-release his last solo "No New Jack". The collector's edition features almost all tracks from the original version, five songs from the self titled project (also included on Bugzy's mixtape) and 4 more tracks that I guess are either new or unreleased. You can purchase "No New Jack: Collectors Edition" on iTunes, CD Baby and Amazon - only in digitals. Visit Buzgy on Facebook, ReverbNation and YouTube. Tracklist: (show tracklist)
