JUGA-NAUT – BEM (ALBUM) 2020
With this jewel of an album, renaissance man Juga-Naut is back to claim his title as the undisputed heavyweight champion. The ultimate rapper’s rapper, this project showcases soul, lyricism, cultural critique, history, legacy, vision and style. At an age where others have fallen by the wayside, Jugz, at 30, is clearly now just hitting his stride. Self-produced except for some help by the powerhouse producer Stu Bangas on ’Worthy’ and ‘One Tonne’, ‘Bem’ calls on cream of the crop UK soul artists Liam Bailey and Tyler Daley, crowd favourites Vandal Savage and Tommy Nova, as well as talented upcoming British emcees Taja and Oliver Rees to complement and enhance this offering. Virtuoso Jugz gives you a grown up album, opening the door to the new decade in his life and for the culture. This album is his birthday present to you.
This album is best listened to in 2020 before you ask Jugz if he’s still doing music. This album was mostly recorded wearing some kind of Ralph Lauren item while drinking double-shot Lavazza Americano’s. If you burn this album to CD-R and play it in a red Subaru estate, you will evolve.

‘A bon vivant enjoys fine dining, socialising and traveling in style — in general, he prefers the most luxurious experiences. The phrase is French, meaning “one fond of good living” or “one who lives well,”
This album is a true representation of Jugz as a fully rounded artist up to this point. A true embodiment of good times, food, love, art, travel and passion. ‘Bon Vivant’ brings together all the signature styles Jugz is known for and displays his lyricism, whit, thought process and braggadocio.
