Spindle caught up with British artist Tiggs da Author and introduced him to US star Jidenna in London. Despite having not met before, the two artists immediately sparked off each other and Spindle captured the flowing conversation that ensued.
While both artists bend the parameters of rap in their own nuanced way, they connected during this Spindle interview on topics like style, heritage and growing up in new countries after moving from Africa.
Tiggs Da Author moved to London at the age of eight from Tanzania, where he was born and raised. The 25 year-old multi-faceted poet, rapper, singer, songwriter and producer is inspired by obscure 60s documentaries and East African Jazz, Dizzee Rascal and Motown. His resulting sound is unique to say the least.
