Bugzy Malone Reflects On His Near-Death Experience On New Album "The Resurrection"

Manchester actor/rapper Bugzy Malone has been through a lot over the last year. While driving his motorbike, Malone crash into the side of a car and was left bloodied. The artist almost died in the crash and just a few weeks later while lying in the hospital, he almost died of a clot in his lung. These near-death experiences served as the inspiration for his latest album, The Resurrection, which sees the artist putting all of his emotions out in the open, for the world to see.

The Resurrection: Bugzy Malone review – highs and lows that catch you off guard

After two brushes with death last year, the Manchester rapper has a lot to process on his starkly honest second album. Hip-hop has no shortage of redemption narratives. Bugzy Malone’s is ongoing. As recently as last year, the Manchester MC was charged with two counts of wounding – this, after many years spent boxing, rapping, then acting in Guy Ritchie movies in a largely successful effort to put a difficult past behind him. The 30-year-old still carries sufficient ferocity to have guested on the recent remix of Tion Wayne and Russ Millions’ Body, the first UK No 1 for the drill subgenre.

Bugzy Malone is channeling his inner 'Wolf Of Wall Street' in the video for his latest single, 'Skeletons'.

Bugzy Malone And Chip Firm Up Their Alliance On New Drop "Notorious"

Nearly six years since Manchester's Bugzy Malone burst out of his local scene and took shots at Chip, giving us one of the best beefs in recent grime history, and the two now seem to be firm friends.
