Wiley scraps new album after spending £25,000 on it

The grime MC says he's started again on 'Snakes and Ladders'

Wiley has announced that he has scrapped plans to release his new album ‘Snakes And Ladders’.

Recording for the album was finished, according to the grime MC, but he has decided to start again on the record. He also revealed that he had spent £25,000 ($42,000) making the album.

Tweeting about ‘Snakes And Ladders’, which was due to feature appearances from Cam’ron, Lethal Bizzle and Devlin, Wiley wrote: “I am gonna scrap snakes and ladders and start again cos I ain’t happy with it …Needs to be epic or else there is no point,” and adding “start from scratch ……i very rarely do this that’s why i am gonna try it.”


Last year Wiley refused to return a £15,000 fee charged for his appearance at Cumbria’s Cockrock festival, at which he played for only 15 minutes. The grime MC criticised the festival and those attending the event, labelling them “pagans”, after he was booed offstage in July.

Wiley also hit out at Glastonbury festival the month before in Twitter rant. He left the site before his scheduled appearance at Worthy Farm on June 29, claiming he believes the festival is too interested in making money.
