The Independent Culture

In the two years since Wiley's last album, grime's gone mainstream, with assorted mediocre MCs selling millions.

But the former Roll Deep man was always too interesting for the Fearne Cotton/Chris Moyles demographic and from lead single "Numbers in Action" in, 100% Publishing is – thankfully – not an attempt to crawl overground with the rest of the careerists. It doesn't always hit the spot, but at least he's firing at more interesting targets than the usual renta-rapper.
