Who’s Cd’s Going To Be Flying High

Posted in Skepta, Wiley on May 19, 2009 by mrinfouk01

Mr Info UK02  takes a look at the burgeoning rivalry between Boy Better Know grimesters, Wiley and Skepta…

Skepta, who taught the nation the Rolex Sweep on his Data Records debut, and Wiley, whose Wearing My Rolex featured on the Annual 2009, are two of the biggest grime acts to emerge from the ever-growing underground London music scene for quite some time. Both part of influential grime crew Boy Better Know, they have, with the help of fellow members JME, MC Frisco, MC Shorty and DJ Maximum, built an empire together, as well as a enormous reputation.

2008 was the official Year of the Rolex as both MCs stormed the charts with grime beats, witty lyrics and even joined forces to produce a grime version of the Macarena. The Bless Beats produced track, Wearing My Rolex, saw Wiley reach number two in the UK charts, a huge feat at that time for a grime act, which previously had never reached the top five, let alone number two.

The craze continued to grow as Skepta gave the nation the Rolex Sweep and its signature dance move, which saw the likes of Busta Rhymes and daytime TV presenter Paul O’Grady recreating the steps. Coldplay’s Chris Martin performed his own rendition during a gig at Brixton’s Mass, and even Timmy Mallett got on the bandwagon to create the Boy Better Know Sweep Show.

Now, however, the strong bond between Skepta and Wiley is to be broken, as the two heavyweight mic men take to the ring and battle it out to see who will be crowned the king of grime. On 1st June both acts release their latest public offering; Wiley with his album, Race Against Time and Skepta’s full-length, Microphone Champion. It’s officially war.

What does it take to be the king of grime? “King of grime? Ha, I am Grime!” Wiley insists. “If there wasn’t Wiley, there wouldn’t be grime, so everyone else needs to seckle.” Joseph Junior Adenuga, aka Skepta, also had his say on the matter, “To be the king of grime you need to be the best at DJing, producing and MCing. I started off as a DJ for my crew Meridian, back in the day, and everyone knew me as a big DJ. Then I started producing, and every DJ used to play my tunes. After that I started to MC and now everyone knows me as one of the best MCs in the country; so that’s why I am the king of grime.”

Will record sales settle the dispute this summer?

Jim Jones has pleaded not guilty to assaulting a 17-year-old boy during a concert in Panama City, FL in March,

The rapper is accused by Damion Johns of assaulting him during an ‘MTV Spring Break’ performance in which Johns alleges the rapper told him to move out of the way and then assaulted him. He says he then hit the rapper back but says two of Jones’ bodyguards then pushed him to the ground.

He says he was assaulted again while on the ground, according to allhiphop.com .

Jones will appear in court in New York on June 4 in relation to a separate assault charge in which he allegedly got into a brawl with NeYo’s manager Jayvon Smith at a Louis Vuitton store in the city in December 2008.

Jones released his album ‘Pray IV Reign’ on March 24.
