TORONTO, ON – October 7, 2021 – Today, Brit-nominated rap duo Young T & Bugsey return with explosive new single and video, Big Bidness. Watch it here. Big Bidness is fuelled by a P2J (Tion Wayne, Wizkid, Snoh Aalegra) enticing beat that Young T & Bugsey ride effortlessly with catchy hooks and trademark vocals. It’s this musical dexterity that has earned them a stamp of approval across the UK and beyond.
The KLDVR-directed visual sees the rappers deliver a lively performance in the midst of an eighties action movie-inspired plot. It’s a cinematic and suave video that sees the duo sparring back and forth with their inimitable sound and undeniable fashion sense, as they orchestrate a seamless money heist.
Big Bidness follows in the wake of July offering Prada Bae, which has amassed over half a million YouTube views to date. Here, the Nottingham-hailing duo deliver yet another striking track, adding to what has already been a remarkable last year of successive singles and career defining moments, including 3 Brit Award nominations, and a stellar performance at this year’s ceremony alongside Headie One.
Being based outside of London, Young T & Bugsey – who met aged 15 whilst working in KFC – immediately honed in on their chemistry. Having followed a less-travelled path to success, the duo are rarely out of the limelight – having been tipped by BBC Radio 1Xtra, co-signed by Stormzy, and going on to spearhead the emerging Nottingham rap scene. The duo’s single, Ay Caramba, became their first top 40 single, and they consequently went on to be the first act from their city to achieve a Platinum Certified single.
Last year saw the release of debut mixtape Plead The 5th – an impressive first body of work boasting over 950M+ worldwide streams – is home to hit singles, Strike A Pose, featuring Manchester rapper Aitch, and the Headie One backed smash, Don’t Rush. Don’t Rush quickly became a global success and an unavoidable soundtrack to 2020, achieving one of the most exciting viral moments seen from a UK act.
Young T & Bugsey reached even further heights when they were nominated for two BET Awards and became the first UK Rap duo to hit Billboard’s Hot 100 list. Their music has been continuously hailed as a sound that increasingly knows no bounds and embraces an abundance of genres. A talent impossible to ignore.
