Throughout 2018 we’re supporting up and coming acts we think are destined for big things through Deezer NEXT. When we announced this year’s shortlist the likes of Jorja Smith and Yxng Bane joined previous picks like Tom Misch, Rag’n’Bone Man and Lady Leshurr.
Now we’re excited to unveil the latest: Young T & Bugsey, a duo who are packing some serious heat and are putting Nottingham on the map.
Introducing: Young T & Bugsey.
AKA: Stormzy-approved duo.
Who are they? Bugsey is originally from Peckham but moved to Nottingham, whilst Young T has lived in the St Ann’s area of Notts all his life. The duo have been rapping since they were kids, and they hooked up while working together at a community art space, where they found they had a natural chemistry both inside and outside the studio.
The sound: The sound of the streets. They effortlessly drop incendiary lyrics and killer hooks over ice-cold productions.
Fun fact: They’ve never worked as solo artists, starting as part of a crew which eventually got smaller until it was just the two of them.
Why we love them: They’re putting their hometown on the map in a big way.
Start with: “Gangland”
Go deeper: “4×4”
