Alqae’s Jiggy Jim Shows Skills And Sauce On Solo Outing ‘Simone Biles’

For those of you that don’t know, South London has long been blessed with an array of talented artists across a spread of different genres. This is especially the case in UK Rap where we have acts like Alqae flying under the radar with their fly, luxury raps coupled with woozy instrumentals. The three man group dropped The Surface late last year to warm reviews, however in 2018 the trio are pursuing solo careers simultaneously. Enter Jiggy Jim who recently put out ‘Simone Biles’; a cheeky homage to the athlete’s gymnastic prowess hence “Simone Biles with the flips”.

I had the privilege of listening to this song before release courtesy of the young rapper and was impressed with his skill set. Jiggy Jim’s playful demeanour coupled with choice metaphors and decadent lifestyle raps give this slow, woozy banger the whip appeal while giving listeners food for thought. The video shot by RED displays Jimmy’s taste in fashion (do you see his coat?!) and duly features cameos from the rest of the Alqae boys who always come baring Henny and flavours!

Jiggy Jim, much like the rest of Alqae is proving to be one of Peckham’s best kept secrets as they make their music in a low-key manner. Hopefully members Jonno and Floss can drop more of the same as they —Jimmy especially— want to build upon the foundations laid on The Surface and early Soundcloud cuts.
