Product Description
 
The official autobiography of Wiley, the 'Godfather of Grime' Wiley is one of the most innovative and influential musicians of today - an artist who started a movement in east London in the early 2000s that is now beginning to take over the world. Over the course of twenty years, he has redefined British music- releasing ten top-twenty records, selling over 4 million singles and helping to launch and establish a new generation of stars. Eskiboy will be an account of Wiley's life and career, from white-label releases and illegal broadcasting to lifetime achievement awards and beyond. Structured in 96 short chapters, it will cover his early years and influences, his friendships and rivalries, and the tragedies and triumphs of two decades in music, as well as explore the history and future of Grime and the Eskimo Sound. Featuring lyrics, notes and never-before-seen photographs, it will celebrate a singular musical icon, and the world he has created.The official autobiography of Wiley, the 'Godfather of Grime' Wiley is one of the most innovative and influential musicians of today - an artist who started a movement in east London in the early 2000s that is now beginning to take over the world.
