Pappzd Magazine can confirm that South London rapper Giggs is in Brixton prison on remand awaiting trial on firearms charges.
Rumours have been circulating for some time and Pappzd Magazine became aware of the news nearly a month ago but could not publish until we checked and verified the story.
Fans of Giggs have been questioning his whereabouts on Twitter and seem particularly distressed that Peckham boy Giggs has been remanded in HMP Brixton.
There is a well known gang rivalry between the neighbouring south London communities.

This isn’t the first time the Talking the Hardest rapper has been in trouble with the law over firearms issues as he was sentenced to two years in prison due to weapon charges back in 2003. The law concerning firearms has changed since then.
If the case goes to court and the rapper is found guilty on this occasion, Giggs faces anything between 5 years to life in prison (See the tariffs on the Law Pages website – search the page for “firearms”).
