Biography

Karnail Pitts (January 5, 1978 - May 21, 1999), better known as Bugz, was an underground rapper from Detroit, Michigan and a member of D12 from 1996 until his death in 1999.

He became one of the first to join the burgeoning D12 crew. He was also a solo hip hop artist. Bugz was also known by his alter-ego "Robert Beck." He released his first EP in 1999 called "These Streets EP". Bugz also appeared on DJ Carl's 1999 album "The Art of Invisibility" in which he rapped on the "Detroit Detroit" interlude. Most of Bugz's solo work was in 1999, but several recordings from 1999 of him performing with other raps such as 5150 and M.O.B. were released on various album.

Bugz' first solo album, "Mr. Obnoxious", was released posthumously in February 2000, with appearances from Eminem, 5150, Proof, Swifty McVay, and Bizarre. In 2004, DJ Butter hosted a posthumous mixtape called "DJ Butter Presents: Bugz, One Man Mob".
