Check out the new video below for the title track from Wiley’s latest album ‘Evolve Or Be Extinct’ released on Big Dada.
After the release of Evolve or Be Extinct (on his birthday, no less, and only 6 months after his 100% Publishing LP), Wiley returns with the title single of his third Big Dada album. Regarded by many as the strongest Wiley album yet, the single takes hold of the album meaning with an unyielding grasp: you can actually hear him enlarge, mutate and shape-shift within the track itself.
Produced by Wiley himself, -Evolve Or Be Extinct- is the ultimate grime track; proof that no one can elevate the genre quite like the Godfather. It’s so strong, in fact, we decided to release it on its own – no remixes, no B-sides, zero fluff. One listen to the track and it becomes clear why: Wiley spits fire for 2 1/2 minutes straight, with lyrical acrobatics that flip and slide through fast-handed jokes, acute observations and boldface call-outs on any non-believers. This is Wiley’s war face, with each line slamming stronger than the last. He doesn’t even stop to take a breath (or create a chorus, for that matter). Pure focus, drive, intent, power… quite simply as raw as it gets.
