Kreayshawn and Giggs-Gucci Gucci Remix


You don’t have to like her music, but there’s no denying Kreayshawn is a cool character, and certainly has a big future ahead of her. Frankly, I think she’s great and a breath of fresh air in the industry, both for looking a little different (I’m a sucker for girls with tattoos) and bringing a unique pop/hip-hop hybrid.

Everyone’s heard Gucci Gucci by now and having recently toured Europe on the back of its success, Giggs uses that opportunity to jump on a remix with Kreayshawn, delivering his trademark slow raps over the hypnotising, bassy production and fitting right in. His dulcet tones are perfect for the beat, and there can’t be many other artists that are as sonically suited to this production as Giggs is. Definitely worth a listen for fans of the original.

Giggs-Take Your Hats Off [Mixtape]


I can’t proclaim to be a major Giggs fan, and I know a few of you don’t like his style, but recently I’ve really started to appreciate his work much more. He’s been making some big moves in the US lately, with the likes of this interview and jumping on the official UK remix of Lloyd Banks’ Start It Up.

So it comes as no surprise that he’s linked up with DJ Whoo Kid to bring us his first mixtape that is aimed more towards the US market, rather than the UK. Featuring the likes of Waka Flocka and the UK’s very own Example, as well as a fair bit of production from the go to man of the moment Lex Luger. It should certainly be worth checking out.

Giggs Backstage At Tinchy Stryder Launch Party

A definitely inebriated Giggs takes over Westwood TV and takes us backstage of Tinchy Stryder’s recent album launch party. A must watch as far as I’m concerned, I had no idea Giggs was so hilarious! I was on the fence about him/his music, but after seeing this I’m now a fully fledged fan.

He may have a rep for being “arrrrrd” (being incarcerated for gun possession suggests it’s not just an image) but it’s great seeing him just having fun. People he interviews in this include: Devlin, Ghetts, JME, Skepta, Griminal, Mr Hudson, Tinchy Stryder and a fair few other artists as well as some randomers.

Click on below to see parts 2 and 3 of this (towards the end of part 3 he kicks some freestyles to some American production, ironically one of them being a Young Jeezy beat!).

Lloyd Banks, Sway and Giggs-Start It Up UK Remix


Another great look for the UK hip-hop scene. Banks grabs two of the UK’s prominent rappers (and arguably the best one in Sway) for the official UK remix to his fantastic Start It Up.

Given that Banks’ verse is the same as that on the original, Sway definitely (and unsurprisingly) has the best verse of the two, coming through with some likeable lines and good diversity in his flow. Giggs’ contribution isn’t bad either, though if you’re not a fan of his slow style, you’re unlikely to change that opinion here as he comes through with the same deliberate delivery. Kanye’s verse is also left in for good measure, and this is definitely one to check out for fans of the original, and of course supporters of our UK scene.

Thisis50 Interview With Giggs

Real good look here for Giggs, having Thisis50.com interview him. He may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but he’s doing good things over here for hip hop.

This is actually the first time I’ve ever heard him speak in an interview, 3 observations:

1. Lol @ how laid back he is and talks, just like the way he flows on songs.

2. Lol @ Thisis50.com having to put subtitles on for the Americans to understand him.

3. Lol @ his influences in hip hop.

Tinchy Stryder-Game Over Official Video ft. Giggs, Professor Green, Tinie Tempah, Devlin, Example & Chipmunk

Official video to one of the biggest tracks in Grime history (yeah I’m putting it out there). I do feel at times that there’s too much dissing going on in the UK scene, I appreciate the competitive side of the genre and that it was a genre born from battling, but seeing the biggest MCs collaborate like they have on this track is just superb to see.

Nothing flashy about the video, but it’s pretty good, keeps the focus on each MC which highlights each of their unique lyrical ability and flow on the mic.

Best verse for me would have to go to Devlin, there’s nobody spitting like him over on these shores. Audio can be attained from here.

Tinchy Stryder-Game Over ft. Giggs, Professor Green, Tinie Tempah, Devlin, Example & Chipmunk


This track was premièred last week on the radio and I’ve been waiting impatiently for a good quality version. Thanks to London To MK, we finally have a CDQ of this star studded lineup.

UK stand up tall.

Giggs-Look What The Cat Dragged In Video

I do try my best to stay aware of hip-hop from our land of residence, but I find it hard at times to immerse myself in a genre led by terrible tracks such as Tinie Tempah’s Pass Out. However, I’ve never been one to criticise Giggs (or Sway for that matter), and it’s these two guys who are getting my attention in the UK scene.

Giggs drops off a video for a great track here, and I’m really liking this beat. His lazy flow weaves in perfectly, and he even speeds up slightly from his usual pace. Definitely one to check out for the hip-hop heads, and I hope this one gets the credit it deserves.

Giggs and B.o.B-Don't Go There Video

Those of you unfamiliar with UK hip-hop will be confused by the name Giggs. It is not, I repeat not, Ryan Giggs of Manchester United fame. As much as I wish it was (no offence), as a United fan, it isn’t.

Extremely dope to see the lavishly-talented B.o.B working with our very own UK artists, and he drops a very likeable and memorable hook which really holds this track together.

Giggs brings his trademark slow flow to the track, and whilst I haven’t heard enough of Giggs for it to grow on me, I expect it will eventually.

Don’t quite know whether I’m getting permissions to throw up the .mp3 or not, so enjoy the official video for now. Apparently the track isn’t that new (although the video is) so I’m sure you’re all resourceful enough if I don’t get the nod.
