Wiley has been promising the fans of a ‘return to the village’, with an emphasis on physical music and radio shows, perhaps buoyed by the success of JME’s latest album. What we got on New Years Day was him firing out diss tweets to anyone that would listen, but he did at least have time to drop a track on the first day of the new year.

‘The Game’ – produced by Z Dot & Krunchie – flips the track of the same name from his debut album into something new for today. The original had Wiley spraying out the plans he had at the time for his career; an example of his commitment to pouring every chapter of his life into his music. This version follows a similar path, with Wiley cementing his position as someone dedicated to the art of lyricism. He also throws in the line “I don’t care if you did adverts for Ladbrokes or Diesel”, which is up there with some of his funniest bars.

‘The Game’ is a solid track. There’s a lot of noise when it comes to Wiley – but when he’s flowing with this much intent, it’s hard not to take note.
