New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The energetic song arrived ahead of the British rapper's forthcoming new album, which will be released at a yet-unknown date.
"Wiley Flow" sees Stormzy paying homage to British MC and rapper Wiley, who is renowned as the pioneer of grime music.
As music site Genius points out, the single begins with a sample of Wiley himself saying "Bruv, I didn't look at it this way before, but as I approach my birthday, all you man are my youngers," in reference to the younger generation of grime musicians.
Another hint to the "Godfather of Grime" includes Stormzy trading verses in reference to his Rolex, hinting at Wiley's 2008 hit "Wearing My Rolex."
Fans of both artists were quick to point out similarities between the artwork for Stormzy's latest single and the cover of Wiley's "Tunnel Vision Vol. 1". The six installments of this series of mixtapes were released between 2006 and 2008.
"Wiley Flow" arrived with an accompanying visual, in which the London rapper performs the track with the help of his friends in a gloomy basement.
Over the past few months, Stormzy has released several new singles, such as "Sounds of the Skeng," "Crown" and "Vossi Bop."
The tracks will likely appear on the British rapper's forthcoming new album, which will follow his critically-acclaimed debut "Gang Signs and Prayer."
In a sit-down earlier this year with BBC Radio 1, Stormzy shared details about his sophomore studio effort, which he called a "beautiful sketch of so many colors."
"Sometimes people make an album of 15 tracks with singles and some filler songs. There's no way I'm making a body of work with filler songs. Every song is gonna serve such a purpose. I've tried to do the epitome of every single part of my DNA. Every feel that I want the listener to feel," he added.
Ahead of the album release, Stormzy also hopped on a remix of Ed Sheeran's "Take Me Back to London," which was produced by grime DJ Sir Spyro.
The collaboration was highly criticized by Wiley, who called Sheeran "a clout chaser and a culture vulture" in a recent interview to the BBC. Stormzy was quick to come to the musician's defense, arguing on Instagram that "Ed been doing this from early, been a real one from early, can't question that." Listen and watch the music video below:
