Stormzy hits back at Wiley with new diss track ‘Disappointed’

The stalwarts of grime continue their beef

Welcome to 2020, where the freshest Twitter beef is, bizarrely, between Wiley and Stormzy. It all started out on Twitter, after Wiley criticised the young rapper’s recent collabs with Ed Sheeran. It became a heated back and forth, with Stormzy calling Wiley “crazy” for sending for him on the public timeline, but being friendly in his DMs – “You are a prick coz you dm me all the time like it’s mad love and we’re brothers and then you come on the internet and act weird,” the “Vossi Bop” rapper tweeted. 

Subsequently, Wiley dropped “Eediyat Skengman”, a track in which the proclaimed godfather of grime brands Stormzy “worse than Ed Sheeran”.

Now, Stormzy has come out with his own clapback – “Disappointed”.

I came to your show and moved to your brother in front of your dad,” Stormzy spits. “Old man just stood there pissed / I said: ‘pops why’d you look like so sad?'”

Directly referencing the Twitter spat, he continues: “It’s all jokes on Twitter, jokes on Twitter until you say the wrong thing, no smoke from Twitter.”

After previously questioning whether Wiley was “on crack”, the track also refers to him as a “crackhead cunt”, telling him to “lay off the crack” and calling him an “old man”.

Speaking to Dazed back in 2017, Wiley praised the new vanguard of grime including Stormzy and Skepta. “Stormzy is doing a great job of (empowering youth) at the moment,” he said. “Even though I’m still here in the game today, the youth today who are searching for that empowerment wouldn’t look to me, they’d look to a Stormzy or a Skepta, a Lady Leshurr for girls. People who have got the power can speak. Speaking isn’t always solving, but speaking can be explaining.”
