The United Kingdom music scene has started 2020 with fireworks. Wiley has released a new diss track about Stormzy, describing the rapper as “worse than Ed [Sheeran]” and escalating their feud.
Twitter last week saw the two rappers exchange words. Wiley claimed that Jay Z only had interest in working with Stormzy because Sheeran was involved. Stormzy of course took notice of the accusation and responded by saying Wiley is a “pr**k” and is angry over private messages between the two.
On “Eediyat Skengman”, Wiley raps: “It’s not homage, looking like a sly one, I know when a brudda and a label join together and they try one / They all copy me, they want some of my one / It don’t work though ’cause this my ting / And I’m the heavyweight champ of the grime ting.”
Stormzy is yet to respond to the diss track, but in a recent interview he likened Wiley to a “drunk uncle” who should “get back to bed”.
Wiley, hailed by many as the “godfather of grime”, has taken aim at a number of fellow rappers over the years, including AJ Tracey who he recently mocked for his hit “Ladbroke Grove”, which is a nod to old-school garage music.
