Early Life & Family Backgroud

Aaron was born in Crumpsall, Manchester on 20 December 1990. In an interview with the Manchester Evening News in 2016, Bugzy pointed out that certain members of his family was involved into various criminal activities. And when he was a child he used to listen all these stories from his family members and then when he grew up a little more he went out. And he heard the stories about his family there as well. He said all these stories about his family greatly influenced his childhood.

Financially, his family were not doing good and were actually in poverty. Aaron didn't get to meet his biological father as a child. His stepfather was the father figure for him. But That also didn't last long because his parents got divorced.

Bugzy told the VICE about his past life and criminal activites in an interview in 2017. He said he got involved in such activities at a very young age of 11. When he was in year 9 he got expelled from the schoold becasue of these incidents. At that time, he was only 14 years old.

His musician name Bugzy came from the nickname "Bugz" which he recieved when he joined a gang at the age of 13.

Unfortunately, at that age he didn't know how to control himself and continued taking part in such activities. Then at the age of 16 he was arrested.

He was sent to the "HMP Stoke Heath" and as a result he couldn't take part in his GCSE exams. He went out of there at the age of 17. When he was locked up, it made him realize that he is better than this and he can do better things rather than comitting crimes.

So after he was freed from there, he choose boxing to avoid returning to his past life. Aaron used to live near his real father in Marple, Greater Manchester but they lost contact by time and he then went to live near Heaton Park at the age of 20.

At his leisure time he used to listen to the music of the "Risky Roadz" DVD series. This inspired him to start rapping. When he was with friends he used to freestyle to the music his friends played on their phone.

Favorite Quotes from Bugzy Malone

“I took up boxing when I needed something to ground me a bit. It taught me discipline, this whole thing I was involved in, this culture, revolved around violence and anger. Boxing was a way of participating in that but in a controlled environment, where you don’t get in trouble afterward.” – Bugzy Malone
“I’ve been in a couple of times to talk to them and they’re nice kids. You don’t get a choice what home environment you’re gonna be born into. Their homes are violent and domestically abusive and stuff like that, so it’s hard to sit in a classroom full of fully functioning people whose parents are normal, whose issues are quite simple. When you’re from a background where you’ve seen your mum beaten up in front of you, you’re a dysfunctional human being. You deal with humiliation different. You deal with not understanding different. School is a hard environment and you get squeezed out of it. That’s what happened to me.” – Bugzy Malone
“I don’t think Manchester is used to having a celebrity of this magnitude, as ever, no trace of a smile. Obviously, they had Oasis but Oasis weren’t walking through the town center. I ask if it’s a struggle to go out to buy a pint of milk when you’re this well-known locally.” – Bugzy Malone
“How can you be upset when you’ve made it?’ What’s ‘made it’? A 50-grand car? ‘Made it’ must be different for a lot of people. I see people who start drinking champagne, dressing fancy, getting the big chains, quite quickly, and they’re the ones who go bankrupt in the end. That is not my intention.” – Bugzy Malone
