Time & Place Album Stream – Juga-Naut

Nottingham’s Juga-Naut has been one of my favourite emcees since I first heard him ten years ago. His musical journey over the last decade has been inspiring to watch, dropping impressive release after impressive release, always staying true to his own artistic vision and refusing to be distracted by trends and hype. But this new self-produced “Time & Place” album finds Jugz pushing the quality levels up even further than they’ve already been set! An incredible collection of beats and rhymes. A masterpiece. Huge props to Juga-Naut as always for letting passion and integrity guide his creativity (and shout to Emily Catherine for the brilliant cover art).
