UK Tings: Wiley – Hoveboard
by Winston "Stone" Ford
Wiley is one of those dudes who should’ve blown up but sadly never really did. One of the original grime MCs from back in the day, Wiley has had more than a few ups and downs in his career but never matched the success of his colleague Dizzee Rascal. His only hit came when he stepped away from the grime circuit to drop “Wearing My Rolex,” in 2008. However, he’s stuck by the genre, for better or worse. This latest video and single, “Hoverboard,” takes it back to 2005. But are people ready for the trip?
