American battle rapper Hollow Da Don took to Twitter to thank Grime pioneer, Wiley for featuring him on his latest album, ‘Snakes And Ladders’. Those of you who have purchased Wiley’s tenth-studio-album may have noticed amongst the high energy sounds of the UK, there was an accapella rap by an American spitting vicious bars.
S/O @WileyUpdates for throwing me on his cd….go on iTunes and support

To casual rap fans Hollow Da Don is probably best known for his recent battle with Love & Hip-Hop star, Joe Budden, and from one of the most highly anticipated battles ever, going head-to-head in UW Battle League’s “High Stakes” with Harlem-heavyweight Loaded Lux.
@hollowdadon Respect brother .

It is unclear how this came about exactly, whether Wiley asked Hollow to do something for his album, or whether he found some audio, and included as a sampled skit, either way Hollow Da Don appears happy to have been featured.
