Rhymes & Reasons presents Pugs Atomz.

Pugz Atomz–appropriately for the long-time host of WHPK’s “CTA Radio”–dug in the crate for his session with Rhymes & Reasons.

He talked to us about Saafir’s “Light Sleeper,” a quirky West Coast classic from an innovator of lyrical style, as well as Whodini’s “The Freaks Come Out,” “Spaceship” from Kanye West, GLC, and Consequence, and “Brooklyn Hardrock,” by Thurston Howell III. (We learned a lot about Polo.)
