It only took him 3 weeks to file a response record, but Wiley has done just that, releasing “Don’t Bread Me,” the effective response to Skepta‘s “Wish You Were Here,” a song that painted him a lone disgruntled wolf in the Grime scene. Naturally, Wiley’s response record is a lively one, and a pure grime stencil at that.
On ” Don’t Bread Me,” Wiley aptly demonstrates the deep-lying nature of his animosity with Skepta, as well as his well-preserved musical laurels. He insists that Skepta has “lost his way” along the transient path to pop-rap superstardom, the same quip he’s made about Dizzee Rascal’s career path in the last ten or so years. He and Dizzee share a postdated membership card with Roll Deep dating back to 2002-2003.
