Fresh off of the release of The Scrimmage, TUGE hits the net with his first 2012 leak as he readies his upcoming project,entitled, IGNORANT ELEGANCE. This week, the NYC spitter enlists the help of young songstress Sam Gongol who's powerful melodies make for a perfect addition over this unorthodox Dub-step fused Felix Snow beat. TUGE's aggressive sound is highlighted on this track,delivering witty wordplay, before the track dumbs down and allows him to exhibit his introspective prowess. As he says on the track, he doesn't "paint pictures" he "paints portfolios", this is a must hear record!
