Wiley gives away hundreds of unreleased tracks

Wiley’s Twitter feed went into overdrive at the end of last week, starting with a tirade against his former manager John Woolf, who he had apparently just sacked, followed by the rapper uploading twelve zip files of music from Thursday evening and on through Friday, totalling around 200 tracks, including completed tracks, demos, a capellas and instrumentals.

He told fans he was getting rid of everything he had so that he “can go and start a new album and hide it all then release it next year”.

As the tweets were coming thick and fast, handily collected all the files together in one place, generating so much interest that the site was at times unable to cope with the number of people attempting to access it.
