Tiggs Da Author releases his new track ‘PLAZA RIDDIM’ the second single from his upcoming mixtape.
The track features K-Trap, one of the leading artists within the UK drill scene and was produced by Show N Prove, Tiggs’ longtime collaborator.
Tiggs kicked off 2019 with the release of ‘KINSHASA RIDDIM’ ft. Blade Brown, which was playlisted at BBC Radio 1Xtra. This followed a huge 2018 for Tiggs which saw him feature and co-write the Nines track ‘Oh My’ from the critically acclaimed album Crop Circle alongside Nines, SL and Yung Fume.

Tiggs also joined Nines on his crop circle UK tour alongside Hardy Caprio, One Acen, Skrapz, Unknown T, SL and Yung Fume, which culminated in two sold out shows at London’s 02 Forum Kentish Town, where the track ‘Oh My’ was reloaded five times.
Alongside this, Tiggs produced, co-wrote, and featured on Stefflon Don‘s single ‘Pretty Girl’ which picked up plays on both 1Xtra and Capital Xtra.
‘PLAZA RIDDIM’ is the second track from Tiggs’ mixtape which will be released in the
summer and includes other huge collabs with some of the UK’s most respected talent. Tiggs is also working on an album which will include other new solo material.
Tiggs comments, “This year I wanted to release two different projects – carefree, two different vibes, but you can enjoy each one in their own unique way.”
Having moved from Tanzania to London at the age of eight, Tiggs is a particularly individual proposition. As influenced by obscure 60s documentaries as he is by east African Jazz, Grime MC Dizzee Rascal and classic Motown acts, the multi-faceted poet, rapper, singer, songwriter and producer is truly one of a kind.
