Song by Stormzy Produced by E.Y, AdotSkitz & !llmind Released: 15 September 2019
UK rapper, Stormzy descends with “Wiley Flow”.
The title and some of the flows within the song are a homage to grime pioneer Wiley, one of the people often credited for creating grime, an electronic genre of music that developed in the early ‘00s and from which Stormzy found his fame.
“Wiley Flow” sees a fierce energy return to Stormzy, as seen in earlier tracks such as “Big For Your Boots.” In it, he asserts his position at the top of the game. Much like how Wiley can say everyone is his ‘younger,’ so can Stormzy.
The song interpolates flows from Wiley’s “Bad ‘Em Up” and “Nightbus Dubplate,” the latter of which is often considered to be one of the best grime disses ever made.
