The artist formerly known as Buggs Tha Rocka has been undergoing a re-branding of sorts. From his pioneering work in the community as frontman of the locally-celebrated outfit Gold Shoes, and through his reign over the populace of the Cincinnati Hip Hop community over several years as solo performer, he has decided to forgo the pseudonym charade and adorn his own name, Speed Walton.
This change was made public near the middle of last year as his new/original name was stamped on the bill for Ubahn Fest. If that wasn’t loud enough for the community to take notice, his forthcoming album entitled Real Name Speed should clear things up the rest of the way.
The album will be the first collection of music we will have heard from Speed since 2016’s Contact EP as Space Invadaz with Dante from Mood. Today, Speed has partnered with Soundcloud to release the first taste of the forthcoming project, “Black Mozart” over Hop Trax production.
Real Name Speed is expected later this year. For now, stream Speed’s new single “Black Mozart”.
