The philosophers have been asking themselves the wrong question. It isn't does God play dice? we should be worrying about, but does Wiley play snakes and ladders? The answer is, of course, yes. But like everything Wiley does, he doesn't just play a bit of snakes and ladders, any more than he just raps a bit, or just has the odd minor disagreement, or posts the occasional amusing Tweet. When Wiley plays snakes and ladders he plays it on the cosmic scale, he plays it with his whole career, his whole life.

Currently enjoying the most successful era of his career following the #1 smash hit 'Heatwave', the godfather of grime Wiley has now confirmed details of a 'Boy Better Know presents' tour alongside Skepta and JME, both of whom feature on his current hit single 'Can You Hear Me? (ayayaya)'.

There are certain Grime artists who have matured the genre into something listenable. Some of those artists (Wiley, Asher D, Wretch 32, Bashy, Virus Syndicate and Skepta) are assembled on HHB Radio’s ‘Grime’ mix CD. Other artist on this CD generally fit into the mature mould although there are a couple of Channel U moments, ya get me?
