LuGuz-The Colonic (Project/Album)

"The Colonic" to put in a simple term is a musical cleansing. This project was not planned or forced, it was simply an organic process. I never set out to make "The perfect song" or Perfect album", but rather just make music that reflects myself at the time and describes memorable pieces of my life. There was never a plan or tactic when I went in the studio. One day I would knock out three or four songs, while other days myself and DJ Klapton would spend one day on a whole entire record from production to vocals. I would have to say that this recording process has been the most enjoyable experience in my entire career. I named it "The Colonic" because I almost felt that recording this music was a cleanse for me. A way to introduce everyone to original LuGuz content. This project symbolizes the culmination of who I am as an artist as well as a person. I hope you will appreciate and embrace the project as much as I enjoyed creating it. Thank you. Enjoy and stay inspired. -LuGuz

The New Pablo Escobar

He is known as the "Caribbean's Pablo Escobar" although his nickname in the criminal world is "Junior Capsula". Nevertheless, he is the most wanted man in the Dominican Republic and he is Puerto Rican.

For the past ten years he has managed to evade the police in such incredible ways that his movie-like escapades make him almost legendary.

After listening to track #12 for a few seconds on Jim Jones new project "The Ghost of Rich Porter" I realized that was a beat I sent to BGTracks@gmail.com in 08 from a producer I manage by the name of Starscream. I quickly searched for the back cover to see if they had given him credit and to my shock, they had gave the credit to producer Digga. Digga? You mean they gave the credit to a producer who has multiple tracks and credit already under his belt? I'm sure if you ask Digga, he'll tell you he didnt produce the beat. I'm sure it was just a lazy move and a last minute decision when they were doing the artwork for the project but thats no excuse not to give the proper producer his CREDIT. We are just looking for the proper credit. Any light you can shed on this situation would be greatly appreciated! Thnx

"PREDATORS" Movie Trailer

This brings me back to the first one. I didn't really get into the sequels and Alien Vs. Predator and all that crazy shit but this one just reminds me of the feel of the first one. I use to have nightmares in the same colors as the Predator when he was sensing heat. Hahaaa. If you are around the same age as me then you know what I'm talking about.

LuGuz Ft. Tom Gist & A.P.-Never Had A Dream? (Prod. By DJ Klapton)

This is 1 of my favorite records off of "THE COLONIC". Not only because I produced it and got to work with 3 of the dopest MC's coming up but because I find it inspiring. Who doesn't have a dream? Right? Sometimes we loose focus and question the things we are inspiring to be but it's songs like this that put it back into perspective for me. Keep pushing,keep moving. There is no such thing as not having a dream.

9th Wonder Speaks on working w/ Laws

In a recent studio session with Laws and 9th Wonder I asked the Grammy Award winning producer about his initial reaction to hearing Shining for the 1st time. I also asked him what he felt about the overall response to the release of the song, and if that lead to working with Laws again. I’ll let 9th talk.
