Young T & Bugsey ‘Plead The 5th’ | The Verdict

Young T & Bugsey ‘Plead The 5th’ | The Verdict

On the 20th of March Young T and Bugsey dropped their debut album ‘Plead the 5th’. The album title seems to be a clever reference to the name of their area in Nottingham ‘The 5’ and a play on words with the common phrase in law pleads the fifth to avoid incriminating yourself in criminal cases. The Nottingham duo brought their usual panache and flair on hard hitting and real topics while still creating a vibe everyone can enjoy. With 12 songs we can flex to during self isolation including highly popular singles like ‘Strike Me a Pose’ with Aitch and Headie One on ‘Don’t Rush’.

The boys from the 5 exhibit their lyrical fluidity while accompanied by exciting features throughout the tape and continue to not to compromise their originality as artists! The song ‘Dreadlocks’ reminds us why we love their music as they returned with one of their many quirky flows and infectious hooks. This is also expressed on of their big features ‘Bully Beef’ with Fredo, as the West London rapper delivered a relaxed verse on a jumpy vibe manipulating the beat to his will.

‘Plead the 5th’ is Young T and Bugsey’s debut album so there is some work to be done, as their songs mostly have a similar direction and vibe. Most of the beats they rapped on were joyous, so it may mask the severity of some of the topics being spoken on, meaning their struggle may not be projected in full effect. Regardless of this ‘Plead the 5th’ seemed to be released at the perfect time as the sun begins to beam in the U.K. whilst we wait summer.

Overall the tape is a great vibe and embodies exactly what Young T and Bugsy are about continuing to rap on the topic of where they came from and how they have overcome their past adversities in Nottingham to become rap starts and glisten.

SCORE: 6/10
