As Bugzy Malone's compelling mini-series grinds on, last week saw the story get even darker, as the Mancunian emcee had an unwelcome guest as his demons took hold. As we start the third week in this set of videos, we have been blessed with a double header, as Bugzy not only delivers the third episode, but he also gives us the entire mixtape ready for us to consume.
The latest video, "Childhood Memories", takes a more laid back and relaxed approach in comparison to its predecessors, with a chilled and spacey beat carrying the track along. However, lyrically, the song remains dark as Bugzy reveals both the good and bad parts of his childhood, really opening up with the listener and connecting with them. The video that accompanies "Childhood Memories" fits the bill perfectly, as Malone is seen sitting down with a therapist, and telling her about his life, tying in with the songs lyrics excellently.
As well as episode three, which you can peep above, Bugzy is also premiering the entire The Journal Of An Evil Genius project with us. The fourteen track mixtape see's Bugzy battle through his demons, whilst trying to develop as an artist. Each and every aspect of this mixtape has been carefully thought out and executed, from the beat selection to the artwork, Bugzy has put together a complete body of work, with a mixture of dark, hood rich tracks such as "Serial Killer" to the more mellow yet still gloomy and intimate tracks such as "Childhood Memories". You can stream and download Journal Of An Evil Genius below or by visiting his this link. Sit back and take it all in, and prepare yourself for what's in store in the next episode, dropping next Monday.
