Thread: giggs

  1. #1

    Default giggs

    Given the current level of hype around London (well, it's been there a while), the fact that his albums out soon, 'track 9'...

    There's no thread or even mention of him here, or any of that hip-hop scene in South. Just wonder what you lot think of it all, if you're aware of it.

    Giggs has grew on me, a lot. There are better than him around don't get me wrong.

    yeah good call. personally i haven't mentioned him cos i don't really know what to say - jury's still out for me. in theory i really dislike anything too american-style from london, never really felt any ukhh.. it's not just the beats or the speed, even giggs' gun talk sounds more american-style. same way PDC always sound like wannabe gangsta rappers to me.

    one thing i know, 'track 9' is a fucking GROWER of the first order:



    if you don't like this the first time listen to it a few more times, trust me.

    next chockablock features giggs and will therefore be 100% guaranteed lock-off according to the hype merchants on grimeforum, haha. pecknarm has a seriously fierce reputation, it seems.

    this whole side of skepta really annoys me - from the OG'z to cemetary warriors to wearing my rolex to giggs now, it seems like nothing can get any hype in grime without him insisting on getting involved via proxy.

    don't mind me i'm just moaning

    There's a few others but these were easy to find and I can't be arsed upping any myself. Hollowman Meets Blade is alright as well.

    i dunno.
    There's other good shit out there as well. Only radio I'm aware of is on a pirate in South, 12-2 on a Saturday. I've got no recordings, just stumbled onto it- it's just playing tracks, though, there are no "sets" to speak of.

    Others?
    There's Villain, Stanaman, Young Spray, few others. Some of this stuff is alright still.

    absolute grower - cant stop listening to it now - his lilting flow initially caught me off guard and i thought he was just shit - its a bit like prez t, really really good

    if he spat over some faster beats it would be better
