And Finally Artist News Releases

Wiley and Stormzy issue follow-up diss tracks, as Dot Rotten also enters the fray

By | Published on Thursday 9 January 2020


We’re still less than ten days into 2020 and already Wiley and Stormzy have put out two diss tracks apiece. And if you count the new offering from Dot Rotten, that’s three Stormzy sends this week. Maybe everyone will have done one before the year is out.

Stormzy could be very busy indeed addressing all of them. For now though, he’s just focussing on Wiley (still quite a job).

Following on from ‘Eediyat Skengman 1’ earlier this week, Wiley has now released ‘Eediyat Skengman 2’, in which he takes swipes at Stormzy’s family. “If I see your mum down Croydon market/I’m gonna rip that weave off her head, dead”, he says in one particularly inspired line.

He also claims a parent-like responsibility for the career he is now trying to take down, telling Stormzy: “I’ve done more for you than your Dad has”.

In his response – having already laid into Wiley’s brother in his first track – Stormzy also keeps things personal, rapping: “I’m a real G, and your dad’s a witness/Boy’d your bro, then your sister begged it/I told that little bitch, ‘Don’t ask for pictures’.

Later he spends a large portion of the track accusing Wiley of forcing his mother to move to Cyprus after he “put her life in danger”. Then says that he wants to have sex with her. So that’s a thing now.

Before all this, Dot Rotten entered the fray with his track, ‘Oi Stormzy, Sit Back Down’. Given that he is arguably responsible for this whole feud, it having grown out of an earlier beef between him and producer Jay1, it is perhaps appropriate for him to comment. Who knows though, eh? Whatever, it’s out there.

Whether Stormzy will deliver a shot back at Dot Rotten’s effort remains to be seen. Maybe he’ll just let it lie. Of course, what we’re all really waiting for is Ed Sheeran’s contribution.
