Wiley (@WileyUpdates)  Announces September Release For  “Godfather” Album

East London Grime MC/ producer Wiley has  sent Twitter into a storm with the announcement that he will release his new album,‘Godfather’ in September 2016. Currently, there are no details of any possible features or producers  on the album, but we can confirm that it will be 16 tracks long,  from which 3 tracks will be made singles prior to its  release.

The ‘Godfather’ named after the title Wiley had bestowed upon him as a pioneer in the genre, will be his ninth studio album, and  follows the release  of, ‘Snakes And Ladders’ which  came out in November 2014.  Receiving some what  of a mild reception, Wiley expressed during an interview with on BBC 1 Xtra, that he would not be recording and releasing another full length album, as he believed the music consumption had changed.

Grime  is currently having its best period since its inception, but is also noted for not having enough big album releases. It appears the self-proclaimed, “Wickest MC Alive”, has  had a change of heart, and will give the fans and the scene what it deserves.

With his’Lord Of Mics’ rival, Kano releasing his critically-acclaimed album, ‘Made In The Manor’  this month,  fellow Boy Better Know MC, Skepta announcing that ‘Konnichiwa’  is almost complete,  and with Stormzy letting every one know “Album Time”  is his focus,  it looks like 2016 may be the year of the grime album.

Wiley‘s – ‘Godfather’ album will be released on September 2, 2016 on Chasing The Art/BBK
