Songfacts®:

  • "Kilos" finds Bugzy Malone giving us a taste of his lifestyle now he's become one of the biggest names in the UK rap game.

    I'm sick of all these stacks just sittin' in the safe
    They'll have to bring the chopper out if I decide to take chase
    Cause I'm in supercars now and nobody can relate


    Bugzy calls on his fellow Manchester rapper Aitch for a guest verse. The up-and-coming rhymer acknowledges he might lose some friends once he finds success.

    I swear to God everybody loves you at the start
    But we'll see how many people really love you in the end
  • The Spanish guitar-laden instrumentation comes courtesy of Swifta Beate, whose other credits include JME's "Man Don't Care."
  • Bugzy Malone was born in a family of career criminals and named himself after a gangster. Here, he compares himself here to a dealer.

    I'm like a drug lord, sitting with the plug talking money

    The song's music video, directed by Tadas, plays on this crime theme by showing Bugzy and his crew as the subjects of a police raid. We then see him and Aitch escaping to a seaside in style on a speedboat.
  • The rapper references his cousin Dane on one of his lyrics.

    But I've stopped crying for my cuzzy cause he's in a better place

    Dane was deported to Jamaica and died there while Bugzy was in prison.
