Cheekie Bugga - Hackney Weekend Highlights
The new kid in town
Like many of his contemporaries, Cheekie Bugga has put in the hard yards in the UK's underground scene to make his presence known. From MC battles in student common rooms to appearances on radio stations and in clubs across the capital, Cheekie will arrive at Hackney no stranger to the stage.
A look at Cheekie’s first music video for A New Kid in Town shows him as a rapper with the talent to blend attitude and a sense of humour in the same vein as Wiley, Tinchy Stryder and Dizzee Rascal. Using beats that would sound equally at home on the other side of the Atlantic, his performance on the Saturday could be start of an even bigger journey for the fast-flowing rapper.
