STORMZY встал на сторону создателя грайма в сингле WILEY FLOW

STORMZY встал на сторону создателя грайма в сингле WILEY FLOW

Самым обсуждаемым инфоповодом в английском хип-хопе стал разгоревшийся биф между Wiley и Stormzy. Началось все еще в прошлом году, когда Wiley насмехался над своим младшим коллегой за совместный трек с Эдом Шираном.

Далее последовали обмены колкостями в твиттере, а спровоцировал обмен диссами (в грайме их называют «сэндами») продюсер и эмси Zeph Ellis (он же Dot Rotten). «Still Disappointed» — уже второй сэнд Stormzy в адрес Wiley, которого ранее он считал одним из своих учителей и выражал всяческие респекты.

Однако в данном треке он жестком проходится не только по самому «Крестному отцу грайма», но и задевает его родственников, включая маму. «Поедем на Кипр и освободим твою мамочку / Твою мамочку трахают за границей / Потому что ее сынок был мошенником», — это пример еще не самых жестких строчек. И все это под инструментал классического трека Kano «Mic Check 1-2», выпущенного в 2005 году.

Краткий таймлайн конфликта

Сначала Wiley выпустил трек «Eediyat Skengman». Это была ответка на дисс Dot Rotten, в которой он однако также задел и Stormzy — по мнению ветерана жанра, Stormzy просто пришел на все готовое и украл стиль, который они годами вытачивали

В ответ Stormzy выпустил свой сэнд — «Disappointed». Здесь он выражает свое разочарование «Крестным отцом грайма»

После чего Wiley выложил в сеть вторую часть трека «Eediyat Skengman». В нем он, например, жестко проходится по матери Stormzy (именно поэтому он затронул родителей в «Still Dissapointed)».

И на данный момент закончилось все тем самым клипом «Still Disappointed». Судя по количеству дизлайков на треках Wiley, сейчас слушатели, в основном, на стороне Stormzy. Однако вполне может оказаться, что стороны продолжат обмениваться треками.

Интересно, что на дисс Stormzy уже успел ответить Cadell, сводный брат Wiley.

«Wiley Flow» от Stormzy

Причина, по которой эта песня называется «Wiley Flow», заключается в том, что она призвана служить Дань Стормзи Вайли , такой же британский ведущий, который часто упомянутый как «Крестный отец грязи». А грайм — это жанр музыки, на котором специализируется Stormzy. В общем, он приветствует одного из пионеров этого вида искусства. Действительно, этот трек интерполирует пару мелодий Уайли, а также самого Уайли, начинающего песню с некоторых диалогов. И он считает себя старшим братом Стормзи и нынешнего поколения грайм-вокалистов.

Что касается самих текстов, то они более или менее стандартны для хвастовства. И они видят, как Стормзи раскрывает различные способы, которыми он превосходит других, в частности, его соперников / сверстников и неуважительной молодежи. Он приносит все это домой, называя свой рэп «Wiley flow». Это может указывать на то, что в этой конкретной песне он намеренно подражает стилю Уайли. Более того, это намекает на то, что Уайли — это тот же тип человека, которого Стормзи представляет, как в этом треке, то есть тот, который уличный крутой а также успешный музыкант.

Написание кредитов для «Wiley Flow»

«Wiley Flow» был написан Стормзи вместе с самим Уайли и одним из продюсеров трека, E.Y.

Другие производители — AdotSkitz и Illmind.

Интерполирует песни Уайли

Эта песня объединяет два хорошо известных трека Уайли. Это «Nightbus Dubplate» (2006) и «Bad‘ Em Up »(2006).

Вдобавок обложка «Wiley Flow» была вдохновлена ​​обложкой «Tunnel Vision Vol. 1 », в котором была песня« Bad ‘Em Up».

Что Уайли сказал о «Wiley Flow»?

Когда Stormzy выпустил этот трек?

F or many of us, January is a time to reset, exercise, and get mind and body in order for the start of a new year. But someone who clearly hasn’t downloaded any kind of mindfulness app is Wiley, the east London MC and widely acknowledged “godfather of grime”, who has spent the first week of the year whipping up chaos – and directing it at Stormzy.

Top of YouTube’s trending charts, and generating gleefully mud-slinging discussion on social media, have been a pair of Stormzy-disparaging Wiley tracks: Eediyat Skengman 1 and 2. They mark the return of grime’s great sideshow: the hilarious pugilism of the diss track, where MCs “send” for each other with freestyles that mock their talent, success, family, friends, clothes, hair, trainers and obscure corners of their biographies. Grime fans will gaze into the middle distance like the historian Antony Beevor at the battle of Arnhem when you bring up such celebrated beefs as Skepta v Devilman or Chip v Big Narstie.

True to form, Wiley fires off taunts about Stormzy’s breakup with Maya Jama, his friendship with Ed Sheeran (long perceived by Wiley as a “culture vulture” feeding off grime’s cred), and his mic skill. Even Stormzy’s mum’s hairdo gets threatened: “If I see your mum down Croydon market / I’m gonna rip that weave off her head, dead,” reminiscent of him accusing Lethal Bizzle’s mum of having athlete’s foot (though for hair-related sending, we must bow to Bugzy Malone’s takedown of Chip: “With that shit on the back of his head / He looks like Sonic the Hedgehog from Sega”).

Stormzy responded with Disappointed. Wiley has always had a playful smirk sitting behind his disses, and rarely delivers real malice – it sounds like sport to him (as well as a rather cynical way to get his Twitter followers and general cultural standing up a notch). Stormzy, however, goes in hard, calling Wiley the c-word, and accusing him of being a crackhead from “a whole fam of rejects” – this mere weeks after Stormzy was revering his antagonist on his track Wiley Flow.

However malicious or not these individual barbs are, there’s a wider unease. Grime broke through in the mid-00s as the most exciting, experimental UK music in a generation, but initially failed to get commercial traction – it was only when Wiley embraced electro, pop and house that he reached the top of the charts. This sound was then rejected as inauthentic in grime’s second wave, as tracks such as Meridian Dan’s German Whip and Skepta’s That’s Not Me returned to a jagged palette – and indeed Stormzy, who broke through with a freestyle over one of the most beloved grime instrumentals ever, XTC’s Functions on the Low (the track in question, Shut Up, is perceived as a diss of Wiley’s brother Cadell – this stuff runs deep).

With his gigantic charisma and pinpoint flow, Stormzy consolidated grime’s return to the charts – no doubt galling for Wiley, who hasn’t had a top 10 hit since 2013 (though the brilliant Boasty reached No 11 last year and was a big club hit). But with his R&B and gospel numbers, Stormzy also pre-empted and indeed drove the subsequent marginalisation of grime as a style: US trap, UK drill and the fluid genres around Afrobeats and Afro-pop have all been much more successful in the last five years.

This seems to be really what stings Wiley, whose diss tracks are as much an attempt to reassert the style he helped invent, as they are attacking Stormzy himself. On these new tracks, Wiley falls back in love with the neat battle bars that defined grime – “revenge is sweet just like nectar / I’m Achilles, you’re Hector” – and is even perhaps implicitly critical of himself. He recently collaborated with US rapper Future on the very limp R&B single Givenchy Bag; but now he’s telling Stormzy “fuck the drip” – the very high fashion Givenchy Bag was hymning – and asking “where’s the bars?” Designer labels and smooth pop tunes? That’s not me, he seems to say.

The old grime guard, then, are bristling at the new, multi-genre, pop-friendly world the generation below them have built – even though they helped create it with their late-00s hits – while the new generation, whose careers have been built on the backs of pioneers like Wiley, are now lashing out at their forefathers.

“This is grime, this ain’t rap”, Wiley witheringly asserts on the second diss track, placing one style above the other; “You’re not on the dancefloor any more,” he tells Stormzy, valuing the raging club style of grime above the high-street pop that Stormzy has been heading towards. He also expressed dismay that Stormzy used a UK drill beat for Disappointed, and has attacked Top 10 west London rapper AJ Tracey on Twitter for his UK garage track Ladbroke Grove. Old-school grime MC Dot Rotten took Wiley’s side, saying to Stormzy in his own new diss track: “Shouldn’t you be having cups of tea with Adele?” Stormzy, meanwhile, appears unfazed, announcing on Disappointed: “They say I’m pop, I don’t mind that … the only thing bigger than me last year was Brexit,” and allies himself with Jaykae, another new-school rapper who recently taunted Wiley and Dot Rotten.

Stormzy Vs. Wiley: An Intergenerational Grime War

The UK grime scene has roared into 2020 with a seismic beef between two of the genre’s most beloved torchbearers.

In a clash of the old, embittered guard versus the high-flying new school, it seems that veteran and so-called “godfather of grime”, Wiley, is unwilling to pass on the baton to the hit-making heir apparent, Stormzy.

But while this beef has escalated rapidly, leading to a flurry of four diss tracks released this week, the two grime MCs weren’t always at each other’s throats.

HipHopDX examines just what triggered this exchange, and how it’s unfolded so far.

Wiley Accuses Stormzy & Ed Sheeran Of Stealing His Sound

Stormzy, who sees himself as the undisputed king of the youth – embodied by the title of his December album Heavy Is The Head – has enjoyed a rapid rise to stardom.

Bursting into the limelight via a viral YouTube performance of “Shut Up”, a freestyle over a classic grime instrumental, XTC’s “Functions on the Low,” he’s become a mainstream sensation, amassing an international following, receiving numerous awards, and enjoying various international collaborations.

One collaboration in particular, however, rubbed Wiley the wrong way.

Back in September last year, Stormzy teamed up with Ed Sheeran for “Take Me Back To London” – a song which could’ve featured Jay-Z if Stormzy hadn’t rejected his verse. On the UK chart-topping original, as well as the remix featuring an upcoming artist called Jaykae, Sheeran melodically raps, “It’s that time, Big Mike and Teddy are on grime.”

Wiley took offense, slamming Sheeran as a culture vulture. He also took the opportunity to call out Drake for poaching the UK sound, as well as his affiliation with Boy Better Know, saying, “Suck ya mum don’t come back to England.”

Stormzy (Mostly) Shows Love With “Wiley Flow”

After defending his work with Sheeran, Stormzy dropped a response to the “Wearing My Rolex” star that seemed more like a tribute than a diss. The banger opens with an interview snippet of Wiley, 40, saying, “Bruv, I didn’t look at it this way before, but as I approach my birthday, all you man are my youngers.”

Stormzy’s rips into the first line saying, “If you can’t do 10K first week then I don’t wanna hear no chat about numbers.” Later, however, he refers to hitting “you niggas with the Wiley Flow.” In the caption for the song shared on Instagram, both rappers harbor no ill feelings, showing mutual love and respect. Wiley said, “My brudda 4 life @stormzy,” to which Stormzy replied, “Always love and respect legend #homage.”

Round One: “Eediyat Skengman 1” & “Disappointed”

With the beef seemingly dead and buried, an underground MC called Dot Rotten (better known now as producer Zeph Ellis) “sent” for another upcoming artist called Jay1 in late November. “Sending” is a grime term referring back to a time when the genre’s biggest MCs used to drop weekly disses at each other. Dot delivered sends to virtually the entire grime game without response, until Wiley stepped in.

Jaykae, the rapper featured on Sheeran and Stormzy’s hit single, then sent for Wiley. Asked by a fan whether he’d respond to Jaykae, Wiley declined, saying he’s “with Ed and Stormzy now.” After a Twitter back-and-forth, videos that took shots at Jigga, and claims that Stormzy’s pop status is manufactured, Wiley dropped “Eediyat Skengman 1” on January 5.

Perhaps directly responding to Stormzy’s mainstream success and “Wiley Flow” simultaneously, he says “We don’t care ‘bout your numbers.” He also paints Stormzy as having profited from what he built, saying, “You never cared about grime you just used it/ You’re worse than Ed with your watered-down music.”

On January 6, Stormzy fired back with a scathing diss called “Disappointed.” Unlike Wiley’s more playful, off-the-wall lyrics, Stormzy goes straight for the jugular, calling Wiley a clout-chasing, washed up crackhead.

“Wiley, lay off the crack, I don’t like that/online talking smack, I don’t like that,” he raps.

He also mentions how he confronted the “godfather of grime’s” younger brother and actual father at a concert. “I came to your show and moved to your brother in front of your dad/Your old man just stood there pissed, I said pops, ‘why you look so sad?’”

Coming across as an authority figure dishing out a severe scolding, Stormzy says, “About suck your mum, I soon bust your lip/We don’t say them things, ay look, cut the shit.” He also responds to Wiley’s JAY-Z critique, saying, “Don’t mention J ‘cause you ain’t no Jigga.”

Speaking on the generational difference while affirming his status, he raps, “Disrespect, we don’t tek this/The old man’s got a death wish/Old man, you’ll regret this/Alright, challenge accepted.” He doubles down on his claim to the new grime wave throne, saying, “True say, I’m the one who brought grime back” – a statement some fans lamented, because of him spitting over a UK drill beat.

Round Two: “Eediyat Skengman 2” & “Still Disappointed”

It didn’t take long for Wiley to “send” again. On January 7 “Eediyat Skengman 2” arrived, taking the attack a little closer to home. Immediately embroiling Stormzy’s mother in the matter, he begins, “Ask your mum where she knows me from.” Things ratchet up to more violent proportions, as Wiley later sends out a direct threat, saying, “If I see your mum round Croydon market I’m gonna rip that weave off her head.”

Once again, Wiley looks to emphasize his place as one of the gatekeepers of grime, while taking a personal swipe at Stormzy’s family history. He says, “I’ve done more for you than your dad has,” referring to Stormzy’s absent father growing up. He also responds to Stormzy’s jab at his own dad, saying, “You didn’t chief my dad so don’t backtrack.”

On January 8, Wiley dropped the visuals for the second Stormzy diss.

Stormzy’s response, titled “Still Disappointed,” left fans anything less than. Once again trending on YouTube, as all the other tracks so far in the beef, the ominous-sounding grime instrumental from Kano’s “Mic Check 1 2” serves the perfect backdrop for more family-focused venom.

“Alright, one more dub, then it’s back to business (Yeah)/I’m a real G and your dad’s a witness (Yeah),” Stormzy opens. He then reveals how Wiley’s mother moved to Cyprus, because the rapper “put her life in danger.”

He raps, “Oi Wiley, you shoulda been the one to guide us/But since you wanna diss my mum so much/Let’s talk about why you moved your mum to Cyprus.”

Continuing to lay into Wiley’s mother, he says, “Got mumzy banged up abroad (Abroad)/All because her son was a fraud (Was a fraud)/Can’t handle this, so she handles dick like I handle the war (Like I Handle the war)/Whore (Whore).”

Stormzy also responds to Wiley’s threat of violence towards his own mother, while subverting the nature of grime in a move that uses Wiley’s approach against him. “Ripping the weave off my mum’s head/Okay, well, that’s a lie. What, we telling facts or jokes? (Or jokes)/Ah shit, I forgot, this is grime.”
