Another clear example reflecting the uprising of some of the UK’s youngest artists is the latest collaboration of Nottingham’s two man act and London’s trio. A mixture of an original type of flow and today’s UK rap sound, Young T and Bugsey drop bars highlighting their own authentic sound coming together with Belly Squad as one collective in their newly released ‘Gangland’.
Squaded out and masked up – the guys get on the block, catching a vibe with the continuous flash of cameos and energies. Young T and Bugsey who have just been announced as an act at both Wireless and Reading Festival, bring something unorthodox to the current line up of emerging young artists. ‘Gangland’ brings a sound that contrasts against the hardcore trap and grime tunes hitting the heights of popularity; one that doesn’t necessarily fit under the typical UK music catergory of today . Nonetheless, the Black Butter/ Sony signed two man act seem to be all about keeping it fresh and trill with their unheard flow reflecting another level of vitality.
The featured appearance of Belly Squad who have been on the frontline since their ‘Banana’ remix recently hit 4.1 million. Brought together in a style of their own, Yung Max, Ty and Ross bring forward a renaissance of the new London type of sound. The trio never fail to bring something beyond the basic track, with this being their second collaboration with Young T and Bugsey, and as a collective of youthful artists they’re continuing to build up their profile.
With ‘Gandland’ ranking up a growing number of views, both Young T and Bugsey and Belly Squad are looking to have one of the craziest years ahead with an endless list of performances and appearances. Only five individuals out of many showing the UK what this new breed of young artists are truly about.
