MEDIA REVIEWS

'The greatest UK MC of all time' - Noisey

'A glimpse of the 21st century rock'n'roll.' - The Sunday Times, Books of the Year

'The legacy has been documented.' - Stormzy

'Grime, Britain's answer to hip-hop, is the most significant homegrown music genre since punk and its founding father is Wiley. Eskiboy charts not just Wiley's story and character but grime's journey from chaotic and frequently violent raves in warehouses to mainstream credibility.' - The Times, Books of the Year

'Incredible. A whirlwind chronicle of friendships, family, violence, beefs, parenting, politics, race and a pure, mad passion for music. Eskiboy ensures everyone falls in love with Richard Kylea Cowie, the charmingly fallible lead at the heart not only of this book but the grime scene itself.' - Hattie Collins, i-D 

'Wiley is the pioneering force of grime, the most revolutionary musical movement in Britain since punk. Captivating.' - Will Hodgkinson, The Times
