YOUNG T & BUGSEY COME AGAIN WITH ANOTHER HUGE
‘DON’T RUSH’ REMIX FT. BUSTA RHYMES
THE FIRST UK RAP DUO TO CHART ON THE U.S HOT 100 BILLBOARD CHART
Nottingham’s superstars, and BET Award nominees, Young T & Bugsey are back with another huge remix to their global hit, ‘Don’t Rush’ – this time in the form of a mega U.S remix featuring none other than superstar and legendary rapper Busta Rhymes.
After the release of their huge Latin remix which featured the popular singer/songwriter Rauw Alejandro and equally huge remix with U.S rapper DaBaby – Young T & Bugsey have gifted fans with an astonishing link up, which will no doubt make fans of all ages go crazy. On this remix, the iconic rapper Busta Rhymes comes through and shows just why he is who he is, with his unique and playful rap flow – an epic verse, to compliment this amazing track.
“Young T and Bugsey have officially made one of the biggest chunes of the year. I felt honored when they mentioned my name in the song and in doing so, that combined with how great the feeling is on the record. It’s like they rolled out the red carpet for me to get on the remix. Now that we’ve come together on this remix, expect the world to get mashed up a little more but in a great way though!” says Busta Rhymes.
“Getting someone like Busta on the remix was crazy. He is someone we both grew up listening to, so to actually have him jump on one of our songs and collab with us is amazing. It’s a moment! And his verse is fire,” says Young T & Bugsey.
‘Don’t Rush’, taken from Young T & Bugsey’s highly anticipated debut mixtape ‘Plead The 5th’ which released at the start of 2020, included other hit tracks such as their Platinum selling, top ten record ‘Strike A Pose’ featuring Aitch, and ‘Stand Up Man’ to name just a few.
The original track, which was released last November (and was the most viewed video on GRM for over eight weeks) took social media by storm, after going viral globally, with the infectious #DontRushChallenge. The social media challenge took the internet by storm with fans, social media influencers and celebrities from all around the world taking part (generating over half a billion views under the hastag on Tik Tok alone). Familiar faces that took part included personalities such as Black-ish’s Skai Jackson, Christina Millian, Shaquille O’Neal, Martin Lawrence, the Cast of Orange Is The New Black, DJ Jazzy Jeff and much more.
With another smash hit under their belt, this amazing remix out now, and new music on the horizon, Young T & Bugsey are without a doubt ready to continue putting Nottingham on the map, globally for 2020.
About Young T & Bugsey
Spearheading an emerging Nottingham Rap scene, Young T & Bugsey are the first act from the city to achieve a Platinum certified single (of any genre), as well as the first UK Rap duo to hit Billboard’s Hot 100. The duo met aged 15, having been aware of each other’s DIY recordings, and eventually linked up, first as part of a collective. They quickly found themselves to be on a similar level, musically and otherwise, and zeroed in on their chemistry as a duo.
Young T & Bugsey recently released their debut mixtape ‘Plead The 5th’ featuring 10 brand new tracks plus ‘Strike A Pose’ and ‘Don’t Rush’. The release was heavily supported by Spotify – who selected the duo as their UK Radar act, Radio 1 – who tipped Young T & Bugsey on their ‘Brit List’, Amazon – who supported with two billboards in central London, as well as widespread playlist support on Apple Music.
Since the debut project was released the duo have amazingly been nominated for their first ever BET Award and also been nominated for two awards (‘Best Male’ & ‘ Track Of The Year’) at the 2020 GRM Rated Awards. “Don’t Rush” has also seen global success, surpassing half a billion TikTok views, half a million Instagram posts, and going viral on Twitter. With the help of Epic Records in the U.S, the track has broken in to the Top 20 of Rhythm and Urban U.S Radio, as well as reaching number #40 on U.S Top 40 Radio.
