EDITORS’ NOTES

With UK grime in its purest form enjoying more mainstream acclaim than ever, it's only right The Godfather returns to grab some limelight. The focus, energy, and crisp, production of single “Speakerbox” are apparent throughout, and Wiley's lyrics are typically brimful of themes and thoughts. There's bravado (“Back With a Banger”), generosity (“Name Brand”), nostalgia (“Joe Bloggs”), and pin-sharp humour (just about everything). On solitary downtempo moment “U Were Always, Pt. 2”, there’s even romantic drama in a chicken restaurant.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

No words for my excitement

The GODFATHER! I'm stoked for this one, and what I've heard so far is a very good sign. Expect that regular Wiley veteran savvy.

Amazing!!!

Future grime artists need to take notes. This is what London sounds like

In Form

Excellent LP by one of the grime originators. Wiley has always been slept on to some extent, but true hip hop heads in the US respect the man, and this album shows why. Respect.
