Early Life & Education
On December 20, 1990, in Crumpsall, Manchester, Bugzy Malone was born Aaron Davis into a family of lifelong criminals. After his birth, he was never opportune to meet his biological father as a child because of the wayward upbringing he experienced.
Prior to his parents’ divorce due to domestic violence, he looked up to his stepfather as a role model. When Bugzy Malone was eleven years old, he started engaging in criminal activity, culminating in his expulsion from secondary school in year nine when he was fourteen.
He continued living a life of crime until he was captured at the age of sixteen and put at HMP Stoke Heath, where he could not complete his exams.
Bugzy Malone began boxing as a hobby after being released from prison at the age of 17 in an effort to obtain employment and stay away from crime. He lived near to his biological father in Marple, Greater Manchester, while pursuing boxing as a vocation but eventually lost touch. When he was twenty years old, he relocated close to Heaton Park.
The well-known Risky Roadz DVD series, which also influenced the careers of Dizzee Rascal, Wiley, and Skepta, inspired Bugzy Malone to begin rapping. He started rapping when he and his companions would gather frequently or conduct crimes.
His friends would start playing music on their phones to get lyrics on what to write. However, during this process, he would freestyle over the beat.
When Bugzy Malone was 13 years old, he joined a gang, earning the moniker Bugz, which he later changed to “Bugzy Malone” while incarcerated. After being released from prison, he started to pursue music as a side interest to his then-expanding boxing career.
In 2010, Bugzy Malone released SwaggaMan, his first mixtape. He started freestyling in the episode of Spray Out Freestyle on the YouTube channel KODH TV. Later, went on to freestyle on well-known urban YouTube channels like Grime Daily. Batman: The Dark Knight Rises inspired his second mixtape, Why So Serious, published in 2011.
Bugzy Malone gained more fame outside of Manchester after releasing a Spitfire freestyle on JDZmedia on September 7, 2014. This freestyle later led to his appearance on Charlie Sloth‘s Fire in the Booth on BBC Radio 1Xtra.
On March 14, 2015, Bugzy Malone made his most recent Fire in The Booth video available.
With 25 million views, his Fire in the Booth is presently the series’ most popular video. The second Fire in the Booth by him, which 1Xtra released in May 2016, has had 9 million views so far.
During his Fire in the Booth Performace, Bugzy Malone insulted Chip. The name you can ride off… CHIPMUNK! Chip tweeted two days later before responding lyrically to his critics, including him, in the song Pepper Riddim, which was released on March 20, 2015.
Chip released The End on April 3, 2017, to which Bugzy Malone responded with The Revival. When Chip responded to The Revival in September 2017 with six tracks, he responded twice. He would never respond to Chip again, who added two more criticism tracks before ending.
On May 18, 2017, Bugzy Malone collaborated with DJ Luck & MC Neat to release Through The Night, his first charting track. The song was his first to chart, peaking at No. 92.
On July 14, 2017, Bugzy Malone issued his third EP, King of the North. Through the Night, Memory Lane, and Bruce Wayne were three of the album’s charting singles; they peaked at positions 92, 74, and 99 on the UK Album Charts, respectively.
