Young T & Bugsey
Talks Hip Hop, 50 Cent, and rapping since school days
Back to the early 2000s
Rapping between the ages of 8 and 10 years old, Young T & Bugsey hit the studio when they were 15 years old, rapping in their school clothes. Big fans of 50 Cent, Hip Hop has always been a huge inspiration towards their music. We at PAUSE sat down with them both to discuss how they both met, The difference between Grime and Hip Hop music plus whether they prefer festivals or Carnival.
Who’s your favourite 90s / early 2000s rapper?
Both: 50 Cent. When I was a kid, 50 cent was the real guy. G-Unit was the ting [thing]. Even the G-Unit Reebok creps [sneakers], they were the ting [thing]. The tank tops. 50 was different. He was advanced, so advanced. That’s what 50 was on man, 50 was proper.
What have you got in store for the rest of the year?
Young T: More songs.
Bugsey: New songs, new beats, new singles. Probably drop 2 more singles before the end of the year. Everyone wants a tape, a project. When the demand is right, when everyone really wants it, we’ll give them a tape. We’re just building up right now.
