This is a video, by Bashy, from a couple years ago of him just talking to Wiley on road in London. They’re basically just chatting about this and that, grime, the war they had, etc. The content is not actually what’s interesting. More it’s a view into Wiley as a person, which is what makes him so compelling as an artist. I met him once and he was polite and friendly, but I definitely wouldn’t say that I know him like that. That said, from listening to his avalanche of mixtapes I feel like I know him, his struggles, happinesses, scars. He seems like a genuinely likeable person and this makes me want to spend time with him through his music. Few people can do this. This video is a little window into that. Here his new “spirit in the beat” over at Rupture’s blog.
