So far we've focused on rising artists on the cusp of breakout years, but now it's time for a certified legend of British rap music: Giggs. Even before a whole new wave of US rap fans discovered his deep, booming voice on Drake's More Life, Giggs had released multiple albums and mixtapes, collaborated with B.o.B. and Waka Flocka Flame, and cemented himself as one of the most important British rappers ever.
His latest project was excellent 2017 surprise mixtape Wamp 2 Dem, and Giggs isn't going to slow down anytime soon. Whatever year it is, you should be listening to Giggs.
