Bugzy Malone (born 20 December 1990) is a grime MC from Manchester, England. Bugzy Malone has been described as one of the key players instigating a "grime revival" moving the UK scene away from more commercially orientated music.
He released his first Mixtape in 2010 called "SwaggaMan" as a free download and he released 4 more free mixtapes over the next 5 years.
He started doing freestyles for popular urban YouTube channels in 2011 including his Daily Duppy for Grime Daily.
In 2014 Bugzy Malone released a spitfire freestyle on JDZmedia which went on to get over 2 million views and was his first million views on YouTube. This gave him more popularity outside of Manchester and later earned him a Fire in The Booth with Charlie Sloth on BBC Radio 1Xtra.
Bugzy Malone released his latest Fire in The Booth on 14 of March 2015.
Chip replied to his critics including Bugzy on his war dub "Pepper riddem". This started the "Grime Beef" and drew attention to the Grime Scene. To capitalise on this hype, Bugzy Malone released a war dub for Chip entitled "Relegation Riddim" travelling to Chip's hometown of Tottenham to film the video for the song.
In 2015 Bugzy Malone featured on a street track with Tinie Tempah along with Stormzy called "It's peak". The song was another indirect send at Chip.
