WILEY – DON’T BREAD ME

Last week, Wiley responded to Skepta’s recent diss track ‘Wish You Were Here’ with one entitled ‘Don’t Bread Me,’ which has today landed on streaming services.  This particular incarnation of beef heated up after Skepta featured on Dizzee Rascal’s ‘Money Right,’ to which Wiley objected based on his long-standing beef with Dizzee following a stabbing…

Manchester’s IAMDDB releases new single ‘Wokeuptoflexxx [WUTF],’ which comes from her fifth EP ‘SWERVVVVV.5’ [February 22].

SLOWTHAI – RUNT

Slowthai hasn’t dropped anything longer than the singles he’s been drip-feeding us singles since last year’s ‘I Wish I Knew’, until now.  Only one of the seven individually-released tracks [‘Drug Dealer‘] makes it on to ‘RUNT’, a new five track EP that comes courtesy of Method Records.  It’s every bit as abbrasive as you’d hope; with…
