Bugzy remixes The Walking Dead theme tune
James R | On 23, Oct 2017
Chart-topping grime MC Bugzy Malone has remixed the theme tune for The Walking Dead for his latest track.
The video, which dropped last week on YouTube, sees the 2017 MOBO nominated artist pay homage to his obsession with FOX’s post-apocalyptic drama. The show, which returns tonight on FOX UK at 9pm for an eighth season, stands alongside Game of Thrones as one of the most popular shows of modern TV, thanks to its relentless grim horror and repeated proof that the writers are happy to kill off any character they like.
The song’s lyrics, penned by Bugzy, reflect on the gruesome story so far, providing a handy recap of what’s happened to Rick Grimes and his crew, right up to their paths crossing with the nasty Negan.
The Walking Dead Riddim is executive produced by Logan Sama and produced by one of the UK’s leading grime producers, Swifta Beater. Packed full of bars, beats and barbers, it’s a walking nightmare that sees Bugzy surrounded by walkers – and turned into a flesh-eater too.
Bugzy says: “I’ve always been a massive fan of the show. I love the grittiness, the dark atmosphere and the fear of the characters that pulsates through the show – which I always thought would make the perfect backdrop for a grime track. Shooting the music video was sick – it was mad being in Rick’s shoes, having walkers chasing after me and getting hands-on with Lucille.”
Season 8 of The Walking Dead arrives weekly on NOW, available to stream live at 9pm and on-demand after its broadcast for 30 days, with a contract-free Entertainment Membership that costs £7.99 a month.
