By far the hottest grime beef of 2015 sees newcomer from Manchester, Bugzy Malone, take on veteran of the game, Chip.
14th March 2015 – Bugzy – Fire in the Booth on Charlie Sloth/1Extra
About to put #MannyOnTheMap @CharlieSloth they're not ready uno fam!! Tune Into @1Xtra right now!!
— Bugzy Malone (@TheBugzyMalone) March 14, 2015
It was Manchester’s Bugzy who first sent for Chip, in his debut Fire in the Booth which has now surpassed 10million views.
The send for Chip includes the lyrics Go tell Chipmunk not to be cheeky/Grime is a road ting, my man’s hopeless/Go make a pop tune, fuck your A’s and B’s/You went from Chip Diddy Chip to The Streets/Oopsy Daisy, I’m not in your league; finishing the verse with So fuck Chipmunk n his A’s n B’s.
The First Reply
20th March 20 2015; Chip; Pepper Riddim on ChipTubeOfficial
It took all of six days for Chip to respond lyrically to the call out, releasing Pepper Riddim on his own YouTube channel. Though he did drop this sub-tweet:
The name you can ride off… CHIPMUNK!
— Chipmunk (@OfficialChip) March 16, 2015
Now with over 3million views, Pepper Riddim wasn’t directed solely at Bugzy but had some strong words for him, the most fiery being a direct reply to his Fire in the Booth Lyrics; “About fuck having As and Bs or something, man sound like they can’t read or something/That’s why you’re stuck on this road ting, cah in music you ain’t achieving nothing.
25th March 2015 – Bugzy Malone – Relegation Riddim on Link Up TV
Five days later, Bugzy comes straight back at Chip with ‘Relegation Riddim’ – going directly at him throughout the entire track with some hard bars. “With that shit on the back of his head/He looks like Sonic the Hedgehog from Sega/I thought you was signed to a major/I don’t think your label’s paid ya/Because I heard you spent your money/Hiring Chris Brown out for the day cause/But you still didn’t even chart proper
Going on like your a chart topper/Chris Brown was dancing on a bus/Then he hit Ri-Ri with a show-stopper/But you’re not in the history book to be honest/No one could give a fuck/Everybody knows Alvin is a punk/He’s was like Chris Brown featuring Chipmunk.”
Buy Relegation Riddim on iTunes.
3rd April 2015 – Chip The End on ChipTubeOfficial
7th April 2015 – Bugzy – The Revival
Four days after ‘The End’ Bugzy ensured it wasn’t the end, with ‘The Revival’ – a hard hitting track addressing his rise to prominence over the past two months. “I’m the grime scene saviour, not you, not you, not you,” goes the hook. Before adding “I’m the Chipmunk relegator.” He then goes directly at Chip again: “Charlie Sloth told them I’m an animal then I ripped Chip to bits and I’m in a different league,” before continuing in and accusing Chip of being a snitch.
The Hat Trick
It took him five months, but when Chip came for Bugzy, he came HARD. In what was called ‘The Hat Trick’ – Chip released three separate diss tracks for Bugzy across the three biggest urban music channels on YouTube.
11th September 2015 – Chip – Light Work on GRM Daily
The first of the tracks was ‘Light Work’, which drew sum criticism with the irony of it taking five months to release. Buy on iTunes.
14th September 2015 – Chip – Run Out Riddim on Link Up TV
“About I took longer than Meek, sonic BOOM hold two in a week!” Chip started ‘Run Out Riddim’ for his second verbal assault on Bugzy in three days – the opening set the tone for the rest of the diss which fully went in.
17th September 2015 – Chip – Hat-Trick on SBTV
“Call me hat-trick hero, cuz,” Chip started the third diss with and it truly was a hat trick.
9th October 2015 – Chip 96 Bars of Revenge on GRM Daily
If three wasn’t enough, Chip wait another three weeks before releasing his own 96 bars of Revenge over the legendary JME instrumental. Also dissing Tinie Tempah in the track, Chip once again came for Bugzy – “How the fuck has he done more for grime than me this year? I opened up the scene this year, gave birth to this ediat brare”. It was his fourth straight Bugzy diss without a response.
21st October 2015 – Two in a Week Freestyle
In amongst all this madness, Chip had done an appearance on Westwood where he continued to take shots at Bugzy. The video was released online on October 21st (along with everything else – see below).
21st October 2015 – Bugzy Malone – Wasteman
It seemed like four (five including the Westwood appearance) was enough for Bugzy, who jumped back in with the track Wasteman.
“You look like a frog with a beard” – buy Wasteman on iTunes.
21st October 2015 – Chip – Dickhead (225k views)
Chip immediately responded to the Bugzy release promising his fans to stay tuned for 11pm on Instagram:
It came three hours late, but was worth the wait as in less than 8 hours from Bugzy’s original drop Chip responds as he drops the video for “Dickhead”.
This comes following a mad week which has seen Chip drop “96 Bars Of Revenge” – sending for Bugzy Malone – and “Coward” which took shots at Tinie Tempah. Buy Dickhead on iTunes.
21st October 2015 – Bugzy Malone – Zombie Riddim on JDZ Media
Just six minutes after Dickhead dropped, Bugzy responded immediately – calling out Chip for being late
However – the quick response backfired as it was a pre-recorded track with no direct references to the bars Chip had sprayed in Dickhead. Buy Zombie Riddim on iTunes.
Chip meanwhile, has no intention of stopping:
22nd October 2015 – Chip – Duppy Riddim on GRM Daily
Just when we thought it was all over, out of nowhere Chip releases a response to Zombie Riddim with Duppy Riddim. Using the old school Chippy flow, Chip directly addresses being called a snitch saying “You wanna chat about snitch/every song you make you snitch on yourself”.
6th November 2015 – Chip – #Alone on GRM Daily
Out of nowhere, following Bugzy not taking home an award at the Mobos, Chip drops another huge diss track for Bugzy Malone. Hinting to it earlier in the day on Twitter:
LIL SURPRISE TONIGHT COMING TO @GRMDAILY… 'CHIP at – #ALONE' RT pic.twitter.com/ze4UWniRnB
— Chipmunk (@OfficialChip) November 6, 2015
Lethal Bizzle instantly chimed in, saying Chip is tooooo much, but Chip showed no mercy.
Entitled ‘#Alone’ it features a chopped version of Wiley’s legendary ‘Fire Hydrant’ Instrumental.
The green lambo he is referring to:
MOBO TIME…. pic.twitter.com/1H6M8DczwM
— Bugzy Malone (@TheBugzyMalone) November 4, 2015
Wiley jumped in and said this should be the last diss:
Bro I really feel like you have said enough now @OfficialChip . #Alone is the last pepper bro
— Chasing The Art #BBK (@WileyUpdates) November 7, 2015
But Chip wasn’t having it:
Understand this elders. Gods. Kings. I WILL PEPPER FOR AS LONG AS I BOMBOCLART WANT!!! No one will enter the game 2016 THAT way. Not again.
— Chipmunk (@OfficialChip) November 7, 2015
To which Wiley responded:
@OfficialChip Bro don't over do it if you know your a better mc .Thats all I'm saying .

24th July 2017 – Bugzy Discusses Beef
Bugzy releases ‘King of the North’ episode 1 – a documentary style vlog following his life and directly discusses the beef (from 9:35).
12th December 2017
Beef squashed? Both Chip and Bugzy took to their Instagram accounts to share a picture, showing them both together at Giggs’ Christmas dinner:
And then video proof, incase you doubted it:

Ye, Bugsy has ruled over Chip the whole time. Bugs spits fire and Chip sprays shit. Mad ting when you need 3 months to drop 3 tracks to dis Bugsy who only needs to spit a few words to put that little frog looking twat on blast. Can’t even fucking ride a quad bike without fucking it up like everything else he does. Man needs a serious lesson on grime before he thinks he can chat shit and run the scene.

Bugzy smashin it
whoever thinks bugzy beat chip is fucking dumb and you know fuck all about grime, like seriously hearing people say tht is fucking crazy you know nothing. bugzy is talented but chip is mad crazily talented and fucked bugzy up where is bugzy and why ent he replying?
bugzy murked chip, no question about it, you wouldn’t think chips hadearest such a huge professional advantage yet bugzys tearing chip up like he’s been in the game for serveral years, to those that are slaying bugzy saying chip is enter rah rah rah and and chip murked bugzy are the sort of peeps that would say you’ve a sick pitbul, unbeaten, throw it in a dogfight, watch it get mauled…and still try convincing yourselves YOU PIT WAS THE BETTER DOG HAHA, Big up bugzy, #0161 MANNY ON THE FKIN MAP RUDEBOIII
Double Time Grime
You guys are fucking hilarious. Whole comment section thinks Chip got it handed to him and yet it’s clearly the opposite. Bugzy’s chorus on Relegation Riddim has so many god damn syllables it loses any flow or menace. Chip retaliates against practically every point in his replies. Dickhead was undoubtedly better than Wasteman and was made in 12 hours, the actual writing, the improv, would have been only a fraction of that. Both mcs trade flow for content at some points but it’s rare that Chip fucks around in a bar wasting beats because he doesn’t have any rhymes yet Bugzy does it all the time (“feed him to the lions”). Both mcs also have really satisfying rhymes that fit well with the beat and are evocative (like Bugzy’s sonic the hedgehog from sega, funny as shit), but once again, Chip a lot more. Instead of just counting tracks or looking at who said something most recently or mindlessly hopping on Bugzy’s dick, take a step back, Chip might have jumped ship earlier but he’s the captain now.
bahahahaha STOP IT chip is a HAS BEEN, Bakububyebye time for him now, chip is a joke ting desperately trying to save face and relevance, bugzy by far more talented like and more popular, chip never responded to shotty horroh what a pussy….as he’ll only start on peeps HE THINKS HE CAN BELITTLE get the upper hand against but he’s been torn a new one FOR THE NATION TO SEE, if he tried putting the same workrate as he does into all the hate into his bars he’d stand a chance but he’s become the grime seen bully victim lol……nuff said
How is chip shit, my man has 6 mc’s atting him? He fucked bugzy malone up Bugzy malone is shit… chip wrecked him, and someone said chips a pussy, chip invited him to Tottenham, where’s bugz at Forget him man, he’s dead
turn into the devil
bugzy has fucked chip up, hes done. bugzy fucked chip up so bad with his diss tracks it takes chip months to reply hahaha, the only thing chip can do is surrender cause bugz has won in the grime scene and if he tried to see him face to face bugz would fuck him up worse
Chip don’t run out of bars I think he has that’s all he says Bugzy merked him
Chip is done, his biggest fan is his mum 😀 BUGZY is on top! king of the north..
Bugzy is true to his word. He says hell do something he does it. Kept at grime and didn’t abandon ship like that two facing switching bitch chip. Fun fact: when I was 11 when oopsy daisy came out they played it at my school disco. That’s right chipmunks little cute colab with Pixie Lott was danced to by 11 year old girls and now you trying to tell me he hard af. He ended his career way before bugzy
Big bad mime
Bugz had chip on a hook the whole way

bugsy is full on the corniest artist, jesus
stfu u dumb dog, you’re the fucking wasteman here, you dumb prick, you cant even rap nayway why the fuck you getting loud?
Needs updating, the beef has been resolved as the pair have both stated in a picture taken of them together
Your mum's fanny blaster
I think both of them had some great lines. Chip may have made more tracks/Vids but Bugz obviously felt like he’d said enough and it wasn’t worth his time . God knows he could have kept the diss tracks coming and he obviously got under Chips skin and maybe made him feel he needed to prove himself.
Some lit bars from both and I love them both and for all those lil haters out there they both put out mainstream poppy tunes but it’s probably the only way to recognition and sales sadly because they have both got bars that’s what it should be about not poppy dance tunes all beat and no real this was a draw simple
