Forever Evolving

Wiley brings the goods every time. He's seen chart success with his eskibeat singles including Wearing My Rolex, Cash In My Pocket and Heatwave, and is known as a trailblazer on the underground scene.

Working his way up through pirate radio and collectives such as Pay As U Go, Roll Deep and Boy Better Know, he's been responsible for inspiring many of the next grime generation such as Chipmunk and Tinchy Stryder.

A tenth studio album is due later this year from the prolific godfather of grime, whose epic solo freestyles and energetic live sets, such as the one at last year’s 1Xtra Live, have gained notoriety. What better way to kick off the inaugural year of the Radio 1Xtra stage.

The Ascent

An incoherent album from the grime godfather, but one full of loveable eccentricities.
