Chicago’s Pugs Atomz shares his new single, “This Lifetime Feat. Rockie Fresh & J.Arthur.” With the second single from the upcoming Pugs Atomz EP, Test Drive (600 Block Records), Pugs connects with fellow Chicago artist Rockie Fresh and glides across the bouncy production of Tusk57. Each MC breaks down what they want to see in this lifetime, for themselves and the people that come after. It’s about leaving this earth in a better spot than it was when you arrived. Vocalist J. Arthur adds the hook to keep the song moving and brings it home. “
The forthcoming Test Drive album dropping October 13th, 2021 is the culmination of a year-long collaboration with LA-based multi-instrumentalist producer Tusk57 and includes features from monster MCees like Killah Priest, Rockie Fresh, and Chris Crack. The album’s stand-out sound is rooted in Chicago’s formidable underground where Pugs Atomz and Tusk57 first connected, but it reflects their global travel and omnivorous music influences.
