When Bugzy Malone unveiled that his latest mixtape campaign would be backed up by an intriguing six part music video series, many people might've thought he was taking on more than he can chew. Each episode would come together to create a mini movie, depicting a tale involving Bugzy and what goes on inside his head.
The Manchester born emcee premiered the first episode in the series last Monday on these very Earmilk pages, and the response around the video was amazingly positive, as the video racked up almost 1,000 plays within twenty four hours. "Serial Killer" started the story off, showing Bugzy battling with his own thoughts in the brilliantly dark visuals.
This week, we exclusively have the second installment in the series, "Unwelcomed Guest", and this week we see the series become even eerier. Bugzy stands alone inside a dimly lit room, as he spits his way through his account of being confronted by one of his demons, and then switches up his voice to take the form of his evil nemesis, making for a truly compelling watch. Backed by a laid back boom bap beat, Bugzy tears his way through his recollection of this dark night, with a style and flow that's easy to follow and makes for great listening.
You can peep the visuals for "Unwelcomed Guest" below, and be sure to keep your eyes and ears locked onto Earmilk next monday when the third part of this series will drop alongside the full mixtape The Journal Of An Evil Genius Vol 1.
