The Mancunian has been steadily building his name on the UK scene, but came to the attention to the nation when he became embroiled in lyrical warfare with north London MC Chip.  His ‘Relegation Riddim’, a reply to Chips’ ‘Pepper Riddim’, and subsequently the video for his track,’M.E.N.’ have both passed the 2million views mark on YouTube.

With his buzz reaching fever pitch, Bugzy Malone decided to make his EP.‘Walk With Me’ available to pre-order three weeks  ahead  of its official release, which immediately  made an  impact on the iTunes Top 200 chart going to No. #21.

Simultaneously making its mark on the iTunes Rap/Hip-Hop chart, ‘Walk With Me’ went to  to No .#3, and  then  later to the No. #1 spot.

It became apparent that ‘Walk With Me’ could make a serious impression on Top Official UK chart when it shot up the iTunes top 200 from No. #21  to No. #3, and was reported to have actually gone to No. # 2, although we can’t confirm that.

Congratulations Bugzy Malone!

Commentary

It’s really a great time in Grime and UK Hip-Hop. If feels the little pieces of the puzzle are coming together  necessary for the scene to go to the next level. Artist seem more confident, producing quality music,  which is being shared and promoted to dedicated platforms  reaching and fans of without the need for mainstream  media support.

Bugzy Malone‘s ‘Walks With Me’ entering the top 10 marks the significant moment in UK Hip-Hop and Grime, being an MC from outside London, which  has been a barrier  for  many MCs across the country, in a the same way it’s been for those outside the East Coast in the US.

This may also be a historic moment, with ‘Walk With Me’ becoming the new highest- charting album in the UK from a unsigned artist. The record was held by Krept And Konan for their project, ‘Young Kingz’, but  in May this year JME  released his album,’Integrity>’ which charted at No. #11 surpassing the No. #19 position of ‘Young Kingz’. In just over two months, Bugzy Malone has topped the position of JME,  and cracked the top 10, going to No. #8.  I guess we’ll have to wait for confirmation from the Guiness World Records.
