Skepta presented The Godfather of Grime with the v05 NME Outstandig Contribution To Music 2017 award last night.
Wiley is regarded as one of the founders of the Grime scene and has been a prominent and consistent figure at the forefront of it. Over the years he’s brought us numerous solo projects while being parts of several successful groups; Roll Deep, Boy Better Know & A-List.
He’s also been responsible for helping to bring through many of the younger artists over the years most notably Chip & Ice Kid.
Wiley’s new Album Godfather dropped recently and has had great feedback. He sold out the iconic Roundhouse for his tour and is going stronger than ever.
This award is well deserved.
From the King Of Grime to The Godfather, it’s good to see the scene really starting to get the recognition it deserves on both a national & international scale.
