"THE LOVE DISPENSARY 2"
In a forever developing digital world, we have a seamless connection with everyone, anywhere... Yet it comes with some cloudy & blurred side effects at times. NugLife cuts through that fog with this elevated & uplifting stoner mantra. Produced & performed by Nug's, the young producer/artist showcases a soulful & colorful spectrum of sound through the calculated production chops, to the bars & lyricism full of light. As a sequel to the first "Love Dispensary" track, we continue on a journey of self love, looking inward, along with some top shelf smoke clouds in the process. A rather short but potent track, just a little over 2 minutes in play time, it's safe to say that this is the beginning teaser of another "Beat Dispensary" project, letting the saga continue...
