Mr. “Look At Them Breast…..LOOKIN’ ALL PERKY!!!!!!” has returned to the scene with a new album called ‘Wamp 2 Dem’.
Is it possible that Gigg’s outlandish bars on Drake’s “KMT” can put Giggs on my radar? Absolutely! I loved the lines, my bros loved the lines, girls without perky breasts even loved the lines! But can he create a full body of work that can make me a fan? How perky of a debut can he make for us?
5. TIMES TICKIN’
Reggae music and Gangsta Rap go together like Syrup and Toast (I was broke growing up n—a), so it only makes sense that a Popcaan collaboration with Giggs would rock so hard.
With the production on this song being a little more dynamic than the others, you get a chance to hear Giggs step a bit outside of his element. Not only does Giggs produce killa bars this time around, but he also rides the beat successfully too.
You’re more likely to hear this song in a mad Scientists house than the club.
4. GULLY N—AZ
This track fooled the hell out of me! I thought Giggs was going to sing us a Christmas Carol, but instead he created this ridin’ out music that has lots of violence associated it with it.
if you don’t know what Giggs is all about, this is the perfect theme song for you. You get lots of evil bars from the UK spitter on this track, as he lets the listeners know off the bat that there will be no smiling while listening to this album. This track is such an excellent tone-setter.
3. GANGSTA’S AND DANCERS
It took me 3 listens to fully comprehend all the personalities on this song.
I personally think the chemistry is good between each rapper on ‘Gangsta’s and Dancers’, especially with Young Thug ad-libing everyone. Giggs definitely comes with it on his part, dropping a verse that you can bop your head to for sure. Duke sorta echoes Giggs energy, coming with that mobbin’ sound. As for Thugger, he sounds like a COTDAMN maniac!
Doesn’t this s–t sound like a crazier version of ‘R.I.C.O.’ by Meek Mill?
I know Giggs uses the same flow as his other s–t on this song, but something about his delivery is a bit smoother this time around. Over this Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony-esque beat, Giggs shows his ability to swagger surf on the beat. More than any other song, you can tell he had some fun with it, even laughing at times while laying down his raps.
Dave has the second verse on the song, and he sounds like a toned down version of Giggs to me. His punchlines are pretty dope, especially the ones about Coke Zero (Which I’ve heard rappers say a million times).
This is one of those hidden gems that no one will talk about.
1. ULTIMATE GANGSTAS
I like my Giggs when he sounds like a damn boogey monster, which is exactly what you get on ‘Ultimate Gangstas’.
I love how Giggs takes his time trying to galvanize the gangsta’s on his verses, doing his best to let his intimidating words soak in. In my opinion, thugs need rallying cry’s too, and Giggs is the man that can make that happen.
2 Chainz lightens up the song a little, and that’s mainly because he sounds even more goofy when he’s trying not to be. I cannot deny that his verse is tough though, especially when he talks that gun talk.
This song is one of the hardest of the year.

With so many rappers making light-heated music nowadays, Giggs does the opposite on this album, making sure he gives listeners some of the grittiest/ruthless music you will ever hear in your life. I’m no killer, I’m no mugger, but I grew up listening to music like this — so I have no problem with it. Every song has this darkness to it, with the UK rapper giving off the same vibe as a creepy dude you would meet in an alley. All in all, it’s certified crime hop, meaning the Brinks truck should be called when he’s around.
Let’s just tell it how it is — Giggs uses the same flow over and over again on this album. Here’s the thing about that though: His sound is so enjoyable to listen to, that it never gets stale or boring at any point of it. So why doesn’t his sound get boring you ask? It’s cause his lyrics are so riveting that as a listener you can’t wait to hear how he finishes each bar. It’s a rap skill he’s come to master, and wins by doing it on a good chunk of this album.
When it’s all said and done, Giggs dropped a pretty decent album in ‘Wamp 2 Dem’. Not only does he stay true to his sound, but he also does a good job of keeping listeners entertained from song to song. My advice to you as a listener is to listen to it straight through, sulking in the cinematic feel of it.
