"Bugout is a wickedly talented veteran rapper from New Hampshire who made his name as part of the iconic 603 duo, Granite State. If you weren’t around back then, it’s hard to appreciate what a breakout year 2006 was, between Granite State’s The Breaking Point and The Aztext dropping Haven’t You Heard? here in Vermont: both albums were proof that local, indie groups were making professional grade hip hop out here in the woods. The bar was raised.

Granite State was only getting started, though: their next LP, 2008’s The RE:Public, saw their production game elevating even further, complete with guest features from Boston legends Reks and Esoteric, in addition to Evidence himself. After a long hiatus for the usual Actual Life Reasons, Bugout stepped back into the breach with a bulletproof solo outing in 2014, The Unfound Chapter, which proved to be a prelude for the duo’s finest achievement to date: the thoughtful, soulful A Tribe Called 30 LP.

Along the way, Bugout has stayed busy in the margins, like teaming up with DJ Nefarious for the BugNef project — which slaps without mercy — or his recent solo EP, One For The Money." - Justin Boland (excerpt from https://www.vermonthiphop.com/news/2019/3/28/outside-influence-bugout-of-granite-state)
