Bugzy Malone – British rapper and songwriter
Bugzy Malone’s real name is Aaron Davis. The future celebrity was born on 20 December 1990 in Manchester, England. Aaron was growing up in a poor family. His parents were constantly fighting. They eventually divorced. Back then, Davis spent most of his time on the streets, where he met numerous gang members. Aaron started breaking the law when he was just 11 years old. He often skipped school and was kicked out during the freshman year of high school. At 16, Davis already got into trouble with the police and soon got a jail sentence.
A year after getting out of jail, Aaron decided to stop criminal activities and become a law-abiding citizen. He became interested in boxing. Soon his hobby turned into a job. He moved around the UK, earning money with his boxing talent. While fighting, Davis also discovered his music talent. He enjoyed listening to rap and wrote lyrics. Later, Aaron said that he was inspired by such artists as Dizzee Rascal, Wiley, and Skepta.
Davis came up with a pseudonym Bugzy Malone because it served him as a reminder of the promise not to go back to jail.
