In relation to the previous article about the Wiley and Goodz lyrical war, there has seen a response from not only Goodz, but also his imprisoned brother, Grime legend Crazy Titch who is currently serving a life sentence for murder.

Now, the murder that occured was allegedly as a result of an individual who said some negative statements towards Goodz, then known as Durrty Doogz and then in response Titch amongst someone else was accused of murdering that said individual. The recent lyrical war between Wiley and Doogz has seen Wiley state that Doogz should be in jail instead of Titch and also; ‘Remember, everytime you’re writing a lyric, my mans sitting down in the cell doing life’!!

In response, Titch sounding as bold as ever has his say on the situation, alongside his brother, the less said the better, have a look for yourself.

Can Wiley Be Beaten?

Durrty Goodz’s latest move to attempt to de-throne Wiley as the King Of Grime may have been a shot in the foot for the once highly rated Goodz.

Some are from the school of thought that this move by Goodz may simply be a promotional stunt to promote his soon-to-be-released Ultrasound CD. Others, believe that this is much more than a promo and with the level of bars that has been directed towards eachother, it’s hard to believe otherwise;

‘And if you wanna get bright // Then try I’m a warlord I’m taking your life // Remember every time you’re writing a lyric // My man’s in the cell sitting down doing life //’ WILEY.

Now this Wiley and Goodz lyrical battle has history, they are old foes. I remember them battling it out in 2002-2003 days, at that stage Goodz was called Durrty Doogz and he went hard at Wiley, arguably one of Wiley’s hardest battles to date.

Fast forward to 2008, out of the blue Wiley released ‘Where’s My Brother,’ a banger that hardly nobody said they disliked. It was one of those songs, you didn’t fully know what the concept was, like every line was a double subliminal, and you couldn’t really comprehend what it meant but you knew it was a big tune.  Many a conspricy theory were attributed to the song but as often with Wiley, it never fully made sense.

Later on in the year Wiley made it known that the song was unrelated to his once protege Dizzie Rascal, this led to further speculation. It later became known that amongst others, Wiley was relating part of the song in the direction of Durrty Goodz and his life-imprisoned younger brother Crazy Titch.

Goodz made an appearance on Logan Sama before the turn of the year and directed bars towards Wiley as well as playing some of the songs from his new CD which also had bars for Richard Kylie as he is less often known.

This prompted the ‘Angry Garden Gnome Freestyle’ from Wiley which has brought us to where we are now, I don’t know how long this war will continue or whether it will, but whatever it is, I have to say that Wiley is arguably the hardest MC in Grime to clash, he has been through the whole works. There is not much more an MC can say to insult Wiley, we’ve heard he like’s younger girls, heard he smokes crack, but he is still the biggest commodity to Grime.

Also, I cannot see much other MC’s going at Doogz and talking about the sensitive Titch situation and blatently say that he should stop spitting in respect of his imprisoned brother!!

Rinse MC has been creating a little buzz within the UK Grime scene for a while, but this was certainly out of the blue.

Being Christmas, you’d expect the mood to be jolly but he had other ideas and basically sends for EVERY MC worth sending for in Grime and even takes it old school and sends for Napper (crack ur skull…. ahhhhhhhhh!!!)..

Logan Sama played it on his Kiss 100 show on Mondays which runs from 11pm-1am.

Make of it what you will…

Funky Cousins!

Undeniably Crazy Cousins have come from nowhere and taken the Funky House Music scene by storm, as well as the Bassline and Niche markets.

Paleface has been doing UK Garage, Hip-Hop, R and B and just about anything since the 90’s, coming from a musical background it was only right his cousin Flukes emerged and both of them, producers in the own right joined forces to form one of the UK’s top production teams.

Paleface has had previous success with Danger by StoneCold GX and Gemma Fox’s Messy featuring myself which was a big club smash from 2000 onwards as well as a consistent back catalogue.

Flukes’ Wifey Riddim had just about everyone and their Grandma doing a remix of it or putiing vocals over it, it became Tinie Tempah’s hit to an instrumental that had femals and teenagers going crazy.

Wiley – See Clear Now.. N’Jai-Alysis


After being delayed in September, Wiley has finally released his highly anticipated album, See Clear Now.

The anticipation seems to be a delay worth waiting for, however a quality product like this has been long overdue for an artist who has many opportunities which have failed to live up to expectations.

2008 has seen British UK (Hip-Hop/Grime/Bassline/Funky House, even POP!!) make an impression in the charts this year but especially UK vocal songs. Wiley’s own Wearing My Rolex hit No.2 in the charts while his former fellow Roll Deep member and protege Dizzee Rascal had a No.1 for four weeks with Dance With Me.

Avid fans will claim that the artists have not stuck to their original Grime genre and background, undoubtedly though it has been this turn in artistic direction which has led to those said successes.

Wiley’s project ‘oozes’ in maturity, sounds range from R & B, Hip-Hop, Bassline to Pop with producers such as Hot-Chip, Mark Ronson, Bless Beatz, Jake Gosling some of those involved on this highly eclectic project. Wiley’s decision not to produce for himself on this project may be part of the reason as to why his vocal ability complements each song accordingly, like he had more time to focus on it. This will surely not be an album simply targeted at the teenage market, this album can appeal to people from a much wider walk of life.

On the back of Wearing My Rolex, many assumed Wiley would rest on his laurels and live off his successes, this is disproved by this album. The title track, See Clear Now featuring Kano and Scorcher is a sign of the development of Wiley’s artistic and mental frame of mind. Although Scorcher’s appearance outshines the others with his bridge and hook reminiscent of a ‘London Jay-Z flow’ if there is one! The song is catchy and somewhat meaningful.

5am featuring Scorcher is my personal favourite, Wiley demonstrating maturity in his personal life from the days of Pay As You Go Cartel and the ‘road’ mentality, backed up by a soulful Hip Hop ballad.

‘Let ’em into my world show ’em how I took // A sound from here a sound from there // Said I’d neva leave the hood but now I look back don’t matter where you live // You’re alive and kicking // I’ll always try and stop you trippin // But it’s awkward if you’re slipping up yourself // I ain’t perfect though //’

I Need To Be, a Pop/Up-Tempo hit will surely be a club tune, alongside the successful Wearing My Rolex, Summertime and catchy Cash In My Pocket. The use of the Republica sample on Can’t Stop Thinking is used very well and produces an effective song. Step By Step produced by Hot Chip is a Jay Z featuring Linkin Park plus a sprinkle of Electro type hit, it somehow works.

In conclusion, this album could somewhat be compared to ones favourite sandwich. In between lies the chosen meat/fish, salad, sauces  and any extras, demonstrated on the album by the musical variety. The outskirts, or the bread of the sandwich are the first and last tracks, Wiley’s bread, Grime. All in all, this is a good project, Grime fans may not be entirely satisfied however as an artist this is definitely his best project to date, with Race Against Time, his next album set to be out early next year, if this is the standard of UK Music at the latter stage of 2008, after a prosperous year, 2009 appears to be a very good look!
