He’s Pugs Atomz, and he can drop a new project whenever he feels like it. Without warning. Without giving you a heads up. He does what he feels, when he feels. And today he takes a gamble and wins with NOUVEAU CASINO.
The EP is seven tracks deep, and is largely produced by DJ Vadim and DJ Bibal. Rashid Hadee and Lili K show up to feature. But what’s up with the title? Well, it’s deeper than slots and jackpots. I’ll let Pugslee further explain. Euro P, to you.
The first show I ever did in France was in Paris at the Nouveau Casino back in 2003. I had no Idea what to expect as kid from Englewood, my friend Thaione Davis had invited me for the trip. You always imagine the best case and worst case scenarios as a independent artist pushing your music. I was left in disbelief,they gave us 45 minutes with a sold out crowd to do what we do best, and from that moment I found myself stronger and ready for anything. In this EP I wanted to capture those feeings of excitement, discovering new people and new places. Production was handled by French producers Mr. Bibal, Wax Mantic. Also my long time comrade DJ Vadim go busy on a few tunes. Enjoy!!!!!!

Pugs Atomz returns with a ‘video portrait’ for the Wes Restless-assisted “Fire Burnin,” from his Bama Pi LP that was released in 2013. Take it away, Pugs:
I wrote this song while I was in London during the riots there, reflecting on my father’s time as an activist, and the state of events in the states. I felt I should create a video for this. I compiled some images/video I felt best illustrated my words.
Watch Pugs’ clip for “Fire Burnin” above.

Pugs takes it back with some memories of Chicago hip-hop’s yesterday with his latest visual, “Loser.” I’ll let Mr. Atomz explain further, but it begins in the 9-9 en route to an All City battle.
The year was 1999, we were headed to the Chicago All City Battle for me to compete in the freestyle competition and win some money. On our way from the Point we decided to catch a few tags…This track is produced by Mr. Dibia$e taken from Pugs Atomz “Bama Pi” Album, available now
I’m a loser baby, so why don’t you kill me. Nah, never that.

Pugslee and Awdazcate take us to Lake Michigan aboard the Anita Dee II for a real life love boat, with this Araab Muzick-produced ode to Iridium. Yes, from the looks of things this Iridium Life party was rocking, and some of the best in the city came out to support. Some dope cameos and shots of the lakefront here. Life is good.
