With Thurgo’s lyrical heat, expert delivery, and huge collaborations to round it off, “Juug Star 2” is high-octane hip-hop done right.
Detroit-based rapper Thurgo is rapidly on his way to becoming a household name in the American hip-hop scene. Now cementing that reputation even further with his latest offering, “Juug Star 2” is a heavyweight signpost of his artistic evolution over the past two years. With millions of streams accumulated over the past few years, and performances all throughout the US, Thurgo shows no signs of slowing down.
The second installment of his Juug Star series, “Juug Star 2” is a five-track hip-hop frenzy that lands exactly two years from the date that the original dropped on March 20th 2020, the very week that COVID-19 was declared as a state of emergency. Set for release this March 2022, the EP is being housed on Hollingsworth McCants Music Group, and features production from GLA Jaywiz and Asar and features a collab from rap legend G.T.
From the straight-talking, braggadocious lyricism of “Bubbly”, to the belligerently snappy “Percy Miller”, each avenue of “Juug Star 2” lays out yet another enrapturing aspect of Thurgo’s diverse hip-hop sound. The EP not only marks out the next chapter of his journey, but also signifies a period of growth and change for the Detroit-based rapper. ‘Man in the Mirror’ is a prime example of this, one of the stand-out tracks that gives deep insight into his personal evolution as a man and artist who’s made mistakes and grown from them.
“I chose the worst time to release my first project, but it was still a moment of growth for me which helped elevate my career. This release represents the growth and extension of the musical vibes from part 1”. – Thurgo
