Wiley cancels new album

By | Published on Friday 29 July 2016


Wiley is apparently now not releasing a new album in September. The rapper announced in March that he would be releasing ‘The Godfather’ on 2 Sep, but now he’s decided not to bother.

“I’m not dropping an album anymore”, he tweeted yesterday. “Pointless, I reckon”.

“I am Wiley. I am the Godfather. I am the eskibeat producer. What else do I have left to prove?” he added.

Wiley scrapped his last album ‘Snakes & Ladders’ and then re-recorded it, before announcing that it would be his “final solo” LP.

As previously reported, the new record was supposed to precede a documentary and autobiography by Wiley. Those are yet to be ditched, as far as we know.
