Well known as the godfather of grime and Lord Byron of rap, Wiley has been an influence to major acts including Dizzee Rascal, The Streets and Plan B. And of course he had a massive worldwide chart hits with "Wearing My Rolex" and "Cash In My Pocket" and worked with artists like Mark Ronson.

Eskiboy by Wiley( Book )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Kylea Cowie, or Wiley, is one of the most innovative and influential musicians of today. Over the course of twenty years he has redefined British music: releasing ten top-twenty singles, selling over 4 million records, and helping to launch a new generation of stars. He started a movement in east London in the early 2000s that is now beginning to take over the world. Eskiboy tells his story in full, for the first time, from childhood trauma to white-label releases, to lifetime achievement awards and beyond. In 96 short chapters, it covers the friendships and rivalries and the tragedies and triumphs of two decades in music, and explores the history and future of grime and the Eskimo Sound

Godfather II by Wiley( Recording )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evolve or be extinct by Wiley( Recording )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dark, funny, wild and exhilarating, this is a record which shows just what Wiley is capable of when he forgets the minutiae of recording contracts and concentrates on the many weird and wonderful facets of his life. The album covers topics from ordering a taxi, being stopped by immigration, to dancing on your own in your bedroom. Wiley has never made a record which reveals so much of his character, his contradictions and inner workings, his humour as well as his anger. A short, sharp, brilliant album, it shows Wiley as more than Godfather to a scene and penner of occasional hits, but as an artist who continues to develop, refine and improve his vision even after ten turbulent years in the game
