Manifesting from the Queen City of Up-State New York’s Buffalo Eastside, the city known to music scholars as the launching pad for “The Funk”, was born Anthonee Bailey otherwise known as Thugzman. As an 80’s baby, his childhood was saturated by his parents’ record collection of jazz, Christian, pop, funk, and soul. That fusion produced what has become his “out of the box” musical style.
Thugzman’s lyrical ability is an enhancement to his artistry as a multi-award winning songwriter, producer and instrumentalist. With his gritty metaphors that are true to the culture of Hip Hop and a flow that is relevant in today’s music sound, you will agree that he is a rising king in the industry.
Growing in versatility, Thugzman has worked with such artists as Anthony Hamilton, Keyshia Cole, The Clark Sisters, Jacquees, DJ Kay Slay, Joe N Little III and an array of celebrity musicians. After working as a session musician, ghostwriter, producer, and engineer for many years, Thugzman now focuses on his solo career in the world of Hip Hop.
