One of the most important names in british music drops his 1st solo record since the worldwide smash 'wearing my rolex'! Hot on the heels of his 2008 smash hit single, 'wearing my rolex' (#2 in uk chart), u.k. grime pioneer wiley is back with 'race against time'. Mentor to mercury prize winner, dizzee rascal, wiley is an all-round legend in britain's dance and urban music scenes and is recognised as a founding figure in the grime genre - one that now dominates the uk charts. Without wiley's trademark vocal & production style, grime wouldn't exist. Highlighted by the massive club banger 'too many man (feat. Bbk)', wiley's fifth studio album is a sensational return to his filthy, grime roots. Featuring production by the likes of skream, skepta, and wiley himself, it's his most raw and immediate album in years.
