East London Grime MC/ producer Wiley has signed a new deal with Island Records.
The deal was announced via Twitter when the godfather of grime’s manager, John Woolf tweeted a picture of Wiley signing on the dotted line. This once again marks another chapter in the 36-Year-old’s career, which has had its challenges in regards to his battles with record labels. https://twitter.com/Jrwoolfw/status/573447997213786112 Sending further confirmation that the deal has been done, Wiley took his twitter account and Tweeted: https://twitter.com/WileyUpdates/status/573450455277273088 Details of the deal are unclear at present , but from Wiley‘s tweet it would appear that his deal may be similar to fellow Grime MC Lethal Bizzle’s with Virgin/EMI, which is more of a label partnership deal, where Wiley‘s BBK releases would go through Island Records. EskiBoy now finds himself back on the same label with ex-friend and rival Dizzee Rascal, along with BBK crew member, Solo 45, and Fekky. Congratulations to Wiley !
