So, Wiley went ahead and labeled both his longtime rival and Skepta “frauds” and “paigons” for skulking behind his back – not to mention a second callout to Skepta for venturing out of pocket with non-domestic collaborations with Drake and A$AP Rocky. It would seem, Wiley is something of a Grime purist, perhaps even by his own admission. “I tell people to work with you, you tell people to ‘fuck Wiley. Fuck grime, I’m a pop star. Fuck all them man.’” Wiley tweeted in October. “You and Skepta, I hope you’re happily ever after bruv.”
Now that we’re in February of 2019, Skepta deemed it appropriate to file his response on wax. “Wish You Were Here” is every bit the type of diss record that reads like a rap sheet. The second verse in particular summons tons of names to the gridlock, some more public than others. And when you do give it a listen, bear in mind, the Tim Westwood dubbing is both nauseating and necessary, at the same time. As far as the Grime scene is concerned, no greater platform exists than TimWestwoodTV for a commencement notice of this magnitude.
