Editors’ Notes After profile-boosting features on Drake’s More Life, Giggs returns to the streets of South London with a typically absorbing blend of assurance, introspection, and libido. 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.
