Songfacts®:

  • Fredo is an English rapper of West Indian heritage who emerged in 2016 as the frontman of the Harrow Road Boys. He gained notoriety two years later with his chart-topper "Funky Friday." That song was a collaboration with fellow Londoner, Dave. "BMT," released as its follow up, became his first solo UK Top 40 hit.
  • "BMT" is an initialism commonly used on social media meaning "big man ting," which is British and Caribbean slang used on the streets of London for big people looking super fly.

    Yo, BMT - I'm on a big man ting
    I ain't going into clubs without my big hand ting
    Got eleven on my finger that's a big man ring
    Yeah I got a big bag, no bin man ting


    Fredo is serious about his moves.
