UK Rap Beef Heats Up Between Wiley & Stormzy

United Kingdom

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.

Stormzy had paid homage to Wiley on his latest album, “Heavy Is The Head”, but, Wiley’s new diss track sees him attacking Stormzy for the tribute song “Wiley Flow”.

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.
