R.I.P Trigger

Generally, I hate it when British ppl attempt to Rap because it consumes me with the same sort of weirdly-conflicted sense of pity that I feel when watching the Paralympic games. I do, however, have a bit of a soft spot for Giggs since his trademark wooden flow is a glimpse into what woulda happened if Paul Barber had been cast as Trigger instead of Denzil in Only Fools And Horses.

"Alright, Dave?"


As an occasional Giggs fan, ya boy Albert E. Ackrite right chea was stoked when the tagless version of Monsta Man finally turned up as a bonus track on the deluxe version of his third album last year. Pretty apt that Giggs has described Monsta Man as "that London bounce" since the song's priapic theme and 8-bit beats predate one of the biggest Baton Rogue anthems in a similar style of recent years: Lil' Cali & Mouse On Tha Track's Dat Dick.

Giggs - Monsta Man
(From Take Your Hats Off mixtape; 2011/When Will It Stop album; 2013)



Rest in peace to Roger Lloyd-Pack. You went out on a high with that Ruthless Records-to-Only Fools And Horses analogue Bradley & I came up with last year:
