Urban Dictionary defines the phrase “Tuff” as -“ Cool, in a rugged wrong-side-of-the-tracks way.”
Jake Palumbo, the Brooklyn-by-way-of-Tennessee Producer, Engineer & Emcee (whose credits include Shabaam Sahdeeq, Ras Kass, El Da Sensei, Royce Da 5’9” & many more) – teams up with his SpaceLAB labelmate C-Zar Van Gogh over a reggae-tinged instrumental, seeking to establish a new entry in the SpaceLAB Slang Dictionary – #Tuffalupagus, which can essentially be interpreted as meaning “Tuff…times infinity.”
“Smoking on the finest / Focused On The Commas / Poking On A Dime / If You Don’t Know What To Call It? -Tuffalupagus.” Need to buy a soda but can’t, only having $100 bills at your disposal? It’s Tuffalupagus. While “Tuffalupagus” can be considered a “leak” & not a first single, it will be included on his 4th solo LP Jake It Till You Make It, which will hit retailers fall 2015 on SpaceLAB Recordings.
