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 whenever I happen to watch 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 would have happened if Paul Barber had been cast as Trigger instead of Denzil in Only Fools And Horses.

"Alright, Dave?"


As a semi-fan of Giggs, ya boy Albert E. Ackrite here 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:
