London singer and rapper Tiggs Da Author will be releasing his debut album called Blame It On The Youts on March 12, and he has just released the latest single from the album, which features UK rapper Nines, called “Fly Em High”, with seemingly autobiographical lyrics that talk about how Tiggs’ past experiences have shaped him into the man he is today.
Tiggs speaks about the song and states “Listen to this and you’ll be in the brain of this teenager who’s explaining exactly how he feels… Me moving from Tanzania then growing up in South London with no father figure. You just have to learn from your mistakes and teach yourself how to be a man”.
The video clip is an animated, arcade game-style visualizer crafted by JB London Animation, that relates life experiences with game phases which are the view of many teenagers.
Tiggs and Nines have true music chemistry and creativity and speaking about their collaboration, Tiggs says “Myself and Nines have been working together since around 2015. Since then we’ve just been making back to back bangers! We have good chemistry, so it makes everything easier. This song speaks for itself […] and is a little different. We don’t try to recreate. This is one of the pockets we haven’t explored before”.
Nines adds that Tiggs is a very special artist and he always enjoys working with him, so the relationship goes way further than just making music, they thrive together into so many other sectors like the creation of the video as well.
