Biography

Young T and Bugsey are a hip-hop duo making waves from their base in Nottingham with tracks like 'Glistenin'', 'Gangland' and 'Strike a Pose'. Both members were early starters, with Young T rapping by the time he was eight, teaching himself piano and recording tracks while still in school. He met Bugsey when they were both 15-years-old and began making music together, recording in Young T's cousin's house amid a cluster of local MCs who would use the house as a base.

They attracted attention on the local scene back in 2012 when they released a remix of Drake's '0-100', swiftly notching up 10,000 views on YouTube. The following year they became part of a youth and music project in the St Ann's area, set up with the help of Prince Harry, which provided them with support and publicity and by 2015 the pair were gaining momentum, with encouragement from grime artist Stormzy.

It was 2016 that proved to be their breakout year. The single 'Glistenin'' brought them to nationwide attention and earned them a record deal with Sony along with coverage in the national media. Since then, Young T & Bugsey have had further hits with 'Gangland', '4x4'and 2019's 'Strike a Pose', performing at festivals such as Wireless, Leeds and Reading.
