Grime genre is the epicentre of controversies and argumentative punch lines, openly calling out other artists. Stormzy has delivered a video for another new track titled ‘Wiley Flow,’ and as you may have guessed it already, it’s aimed directly at Wiley who has shared his views on recent collaboration between Stormzy and Ed Sheeran.
The track begins with a snippet of dialogue from Wiley: “Bruv, I didn’t look at it this way before, but as I approach my birthday, all you men are my youngers.” Stormzy then launches into a bar showcase: “This year I’mma be a household name,” he promises, “I grew up in a house of pain / I don’t do it for the clout or fame / All the real n****s gonna vouch on my name.”
Last week, Stormzy released another single and video, ‘Sounds of the Skeng’. He also appeared on Ed Sheeran’s remix of ‘Take Me Back To London’, which prompted Wiley to label the pop star a “clout chaser and a culture vulture”. Stormzy came to Sheeran’s defence on instagram, saying “Ed been doing this from early, been a real one from early, can’t question that.”
