Catch Me If You Can is the debut album of UK rapper Bashy. The highly anticipated debut album was released by Bashy on 1 June 2009. rated the album 'good' saying "Catch Me If You Can is a debut album that perfectly encapsulates how hip hop has become the world's local music. With vocal accents, lyrical references, swagger and varied production styles that will take a minute for the non-Brit to get their head around, much of this likable and well-intentioned set still deserves wider attention."[1]

Bashy re-recorded the video for the single, "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" in July 2009 with young people taking part in creative workshops in London Borough of Newham for BBC Blast. The students, from New Vic College, East London, were set the challenge by Blast and MTV Music Video Award winning director Jake Nava to create 3 music videos for Bashy's single.
