​Wiley makes amends with Skepta over Twitter

Grime pioneer Wiley has extended an olive branch to his former friend and collaborator Skepta over Twitter.

The feud between the two MCs started back in October after Skepta decided to team up with Wiley's arch-nemesis Dizzee Rascal for the track 'Money Right'.

Wiley launched into an angry tirade over social media after hearing about their collaboration. He branded both of them "paigons" and "frauds", telling both of them “you will never be able to beat me at my own game, ever.”

This started a chain reaction of insults and disses that can be heard on both Skepta's 'Wish You Were Here' and later on Wiley's diss track Wiley's 'Don't Bread Me', both of which came out in February.

Now, it appears as though Wiley wants to bury the hatchet after writing an unposed and emotionally honest note to Skepta via Twitter.

He wrote, "I don’t hate you Skepta you are my brother I was just upset. 2 of my brothers working together and neither 1 wanted to work or speak to me. Hurts pal. I don’t blame jammer either I blame myself Cos I’m a leader not a crew member."

Wiley added, "Anyway Skepta Big Up Ya Chest You made it a family business #Ratings for your family too but now I gotta take care of my own family."

The apology comes on the heels of another shocking apology from grime godfather Wiley, who made amends with his arch-rival Dizzee Rascal after giving him major props for his headlining slot at Glastonbury via an interview with NME.

"He’s done the most out of any black boy I’ve ever known in England," said Wiley. "I’ve never seen anyone do more than what he’s done. For me, Dizzee is the greatest person I’ve ever known.”
