Bugzee Lix has worked with other forward-thinking and passionate music brands as he releases a new album, Manifest Destiny. The Drill Music Album, which will be officially available on all streaming platforms on June 3, 2022, is created as part of the goal to shed a positive light on NY Drill Music.
“Overall, Manifest Destiny has a lyricism ingrained in it talking about many distinct experiences from the artist Bugzee Lix’s creative psych. And the artist is certainly embarking on an innovative trajectory with each of his new albums. And therefore, Jukebox Times highly recommends Manifest Destiny.” – Jukebox Times.
The music industry has evolved significantly over the past decades, with hip-hop and rap in particular playing a major role in the growth. However, Drill Music has been catching a ton of negative publicity lately in New York, which is where Bugzee Lix aims to change the narrative, working with notable producers such as Mozzy and Shoreline Mafia mega-producer, ProdByJune to create the Manifest Destiny Album in NYC.
Bugzee thinks he may have actually accidentally invented Drill Rap back in 2005, on an early Drill type beat produced by his Long Island Producer LT Productions, where he channeled Tupac. The song is called “Ambitions 4 the F PaHcc” and it is featured on the bandcamp.com version of Manifest Destiny because it fit the album’s 2022 recorded songs. Listeners can decide for themselves if it has an early Drill vibe to it that the UK smartly developed and made its way back to NYC.
Bugzee offers a unique feel to the project, offering a NY/UK drill vibe to take music lovers on an amazing ride with major contributions from Stefan Sebastian who produced a majority of the new album. The album features songs such as “BAP (Baddie And A Princess),” already making waves, ranked #11 on digitaldjpool.com, and “Poisonous,” produced by Platinum producer Herb Middleton, which has continued to enjoy rave reviews following the release of the music video. Other lead songs on the album are “They Want Bugzee Lix”, and “Real Man That’s Grown” which is an ode to responsible New York street dudes and 9 to 5ers.
Manifest Destiny is part of Bugzee’s goal of helping Mayor Adams, the New York Mayor put a positive spin on drill music. The 13-track album will undoubtedly chart a new course in the rap game, as Bugzee Lix sends chills up the spine of listeners once again with the witty, lyrical, weird rap style that has become his signature.
