Record Label: Wiley
Fourteen years after debuting with the classic white label ‘Eskimo’ the legendary grime figurehead Wiley is set to reaffirm his status as the pioneer of the genre with the release of ‘Godfather’.
Wiley has carved his own niche through a career that has moved from influential underground tracks such as ‘Ice Rink’, ‘Wot Do You Call It?’ and ‘Pies’ through to massive crossover hits including ‘Wearing My Rolex’, ‘Heatwave’ and ‘Can You Hear Me? (Ayayay)’.
As a founding father of grime, Wiley’s mission statement with the ‘Godfather’ album is to deliver the genre’s defining masterpiece at a time when it’s bigger than ever before.
