Giggs premiered a series of tracks from his recent album 'Let Em Ave It' at the Leeds Festival today (August 27).

The Peckham-based rapper whipped up the crowd in the Festival Republic Stage at Bramham Park as he was greeted with chants of, "We want Giggs, we want Giggs."

Dressed in a light blue anorak and backed by a DJ, he urged the crowd early on to get "some vibes going" as he launched into 'Don't Go There', before adding: "If you're proud of where you come from raise your hands in the air."

Giggs played:

'Slow Songs'
'Don't Go There'
'Hustle On'
'Get Your Money Up'
'Matic'
'Look Out'
'Look What The Cat Dragged In'
'Talkin The Hardest'
