Wiley mentions Stormzy‘s mother in the latest diss track to emerge out of the pair’s ongoing feud.

The “godfather of grime”​ has been criticising Stormzy for his collaborations with singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, including the number one single “Own It”, which also features Burna Boy.

Wiley shared a number of tweets mocking the younger artist before releasing ”Eediyat Skengman”, on which he accuses Stormzy of not caring about grime, “you just used it”.

Stormzy responded with his own diss track, “Disappointed”, in which he dismisses Wiley as an “old man” and accuses him of mentioning his name “for the clout”.

“Disappointed” has already received more than two million views on YouTube.

Wiley has now fired back with “Eediyat Skengman 2”, where he accuses Stormzy of owing him a “lump sum” and also calls on his rival to “come and see me”.

“If I see your mum at Croydon market, I’m going to rip that weave off her head,” he raps.

Stormzy’s mother Abigail appeared in his music video for his 2015 track “Know Me From”.

The grime star, who headlined Glastonbury festival last year, has yet to respond to the new track.
