Released at midnight on Friday 6th October, many people were waiting for this one. The mixtape consists of 13 tracks including some features from international artists such as the likes of Popcaan, 2 Chainz, Young Thug and grime legend D Double E.

At the age of 34, it’s clear Giggs, real name Nathaniel Thompson has continued to work hard throughout the year. “Landlord” was the last album he had released in 2016 which included some very popular tracks.

His measured, steady-pulsed delivery is as compelling as ever, seeping rather than bursting from the speakers. Strengthening his bonds with American hip-hop, he confidently trades verses with 2 Chainz on the steely “Ultimate Gangsta”, while Lil Duke and Young Thug arrive with barrel-chested confidence over the crackle-and-pop beats of “Gangstas & Dancers”. Giggs is always the most gripping presence though, particularly on “The Essence”—a thoughtful, frustrated portrait of his environment set to warm, slo-mo funk.”
