Earlier this year Wiley announced he was working on an autobiography and that there were plans to then turn that book into a film. Well, it appears those plans have just become a little more concrete. A book deal has now been announced with Hodder and it’s already got a release date (Nov 2 2016), and is even available for pre-order.
Naturally, with a story like Wiley’s, there’ll be more plot speculation than the weeks between Game Of Thrones episodes. The Godfather of Grime has already suggested he’d like to include Crazy Titch, Durrty Goodz and Dizzee Rascal, but who else should feature? He’s been there from the beginning and worked with pretty much everyone in the scene—that’s a lot to include in two hours.
Which MCs and which anecdotes do you think need to make the cut?
Very happy to have closed this deal today . For the past 9 years I have worked alongside @wiley__ . The word genius gets thrown around a lot but Wiley truly is one. Together we have sold millions of records and toured every inch of the globe. I'm grateful to have played a small role in such a amazing story. Also been through every emotion and crazy experience possible. I'm excited for everyone to read and see the story of this true musical icon I'm proud to call my client and friend. #book #film #soundtrack #wiley #life #grime #godfather #pioneer
