Nottingham duo Young T & Bugsey first made their mark when they released their own take on Drake’s 0 to 100 which garnered 10,000 views almost overnight. Having established themselves as a leading light of Nottingham’s hip-hop and rap scene, local raves have now given way to Radio 1 playlist slots.
The duo have been championed by grime mega-star Stormzy and label-mate J Hus, and look set for a huge 2019 as UK rap’s next big breakthrough. T and Bugsey compliment and contrast one another at just the right moments. Single Greenlight, for example, blends the icy synths reminiscent of grime with a catchy, addictive hook. Latest releases Gangland and En Route, pack a serious punch. These are tracks that tick several boxes, from headliner show to headphone moment.
