Ok, I’m going to be honest. I’m not an expert by any means on Grime, so if you’re hoping for a deep insight on MCs, then you have come to the wrong place. However, I know what I like, and frankly the stuff I have heard from Wiley is fabulous. I have struggled to find a decent picture to post, so apologies.
However, last month, Wiley made the front cover of The Wire, and has a new album out, Playtime Is Over. I picked up a recent 12″ ‘5050/Bow-E3’ and have now a few mp3s for your pleasure, bought from emusic, as well as an earlier track from 2004, courtesy of The Wire website (which is fast becoming my favourite magazine and associated website).
Wiley-‘Bow E3.’ mp3
Wiley-‘Flyboy.’ mp3 all from Playtime Is Over
Wiley-‘Ground Zero.’ mp3
As always, these mp3s will be up for one week only. If you like what you hear, go and buy the album, preferably from an independent record store. And let me know what you think!
