STORMZY CHALLENGES WILEY TO RADIO CLASH AFTER PAIR TRADE SHOTS ON TWITTER

After getting into another heated exchange on Twitter, Stormzy has challenged Wiley to a clash on radio.

The beef between the two artists appears to have started when Stormzy replied to a tweet from Wiley, writing: “This old crackhead tweets me every single day you are obsessed with me, what an embarrassment.”
https://twitter.com/stormzy/status/1228707667675316225?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1228707667675316225&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fgrmdaily.com%2Fstormzy-challenges-wiley-to-radio-clash
After an exchange of words, Wiley tweeted: “@stormzy Clash me in the O2 or shut up Cos your way out of your depth here.”
https://twitter.com/WileyUK/status/1228712681902874624?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1228712681902874624&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fgrmdaily.com%2Fstormzy-challenges-wiley-to-radio-clash
However, Stormzy offered an alternative, challenging Wiley to a clash on radio.

“Ok how about this, @WileyUK I’ll clash you TONIGHT LIVE ON  @RinseFM @1Xtra any station you want and bury you live for all the grime scene to see”, wrote Stormzy.

He added: “The Godfather of grime is a real big P***Y who gets into war, gets buried, ends up hating himself for trying it and then apologises.”
https://twitter.com/stormzy/status/1228714216057712640?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1228714216057712640&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fgrmdaily.com%2Fstormzy-challenges-wiley-to-radio-clash
Since then, the pair have continued to send shots at each other, which has resulted in Stormzy giving Wiley five days to step up for a clash.

The new war of words from the two MCs comes just weeks after they released a series of diss tracks aimed at each other.

LIL WAYNE TEASES RETIREMENT WITH NEW ALBUM ‘FUNERAL’ FEATURING 2 CHAINZ, TAKEOFF & MORE

Lil Wayne has been in hip-hop’s debate about the best living rappers for decades but the rapper’s reign might be coming to a formal end with the release of Funeral which many believe is Wayne’s last album.

At 24 tracks long, Funeral is a generous offering and houses plenty of new music for fans to take in and enjoy. 

Collaborations on this project include some of the biggest names in hip-hop and trap – Big Sean, Lil Baby, 2 Chainz, Takeoff and O.T. Genasis are among contributors to the project. 

Noticeably absent on the project are artists from the Young Money camp which at its peak included Nicki Minaj, Drake and Tyga. 

Wayne’s protege Lil Twist does make an appearance on the album though and hip-hop fans will remember Lil Twist as one of the youngers attached to the Young Money crew. 

Known for his versatile sound, the project effortlessly moves between genres. We hear R&B on some tracks, hip-hop on others and even country. “Trust Nobody” features Adam Levine and is clearly inspired by Wayne’s Southern upbringing. 

Take in Funeral on streaming services below and for more from Lil Wayne, listen to his track “PlayOff”

JUICE WRLD’S CAUSE OF DEATH HAS BEEN CONFIRMED

Over a month after his passing, the cause of world-renowned Chicago rapper Juice WRLD has been confirmed.

On Wednesday, the Cook County Medical Examiner ruled that the young talent died of an accidental overdose of codeine and oxycodone.

Juice WRLD – whose legal name was Jarad Higgins – died on December 8th at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

After experiencing cardiac arrest-like symptoms when he touched down at Chicago’s Midway Airport following a flight from Los Angeles, the star was rushed to the hospital. Shortly after stepping off the private jet, he passed away just day’s after celebrating his 21st birthday.

In the days following Juice WRLD’s death, fans and friends of the rapper packed Chicago’s Millennium Park to pay tribute to him.

Last month, his mother Carmella Wallace said that she hoped his death would help to raise awareness of addiction. Speaking candidly, she said: “Addiction knows no boundaries and its impact goes way beyond the person fighting it.
“Jarad was a son, brother, grandson, friend and so much more to so many people who wanted more than anything to see him defeat addiction.”  She added: “We hope the conversations he started in his music and his legacy will help others win their battles as that is what he wanted more than anything.”

J HUS FINALLY ANNOUNCES UPCOMING ALBUM ‘BIG CONSPIRACY’

This past weekend, J Hus’ highly-anticipated album leaked online and now the rapper has taken to social media to address the leak and finally announce its release date and title!

Posting a video of the leaked audios on Instagram and Twitter, J Hus wrote: “The only song missing is the Ella Mai one. We’ll add it when it’s cleared.” The video then ends with the deletion of the audios and the text “BIG CONSPIRACY” and the date “24-01-2020”.

Hus’ Instagram post seems to confirm that the leaked audios were in fact from his forthcoming album, explaining that his collaboration with Ella Mai is still awaiting clearance. Other big collaborations on the tape include J Hus’s joint efforts with Koffee and Burna Boy.

Prior to the leaks, the east London artist had provided us with two singles from the tape – “No Denying” and “Must Be” – but details surrounding the tape were limited. 

Now, it looks like we have an official release date (January 24th) and title (Big Conspiracy) for the long-awaited tape but J Hus has told his Twitter followers physical copies of the album won’t be released until February 7th.


Given the great anticipation for J Hus’ second studio album, we can definitely expect to LP to be a hit with fans upon its release.

STORMZY SET TO END BBC’S CHRISTMAS DAY WITH BIBLE READING

Following the recent release of his latest album Heavy Is The Head, the man of the moment, Stormzy will be performing a bible reading for the BBC on Christmas day. 

Although the London-born rapper may not be the obvious choice for this set up, he often uses religious references in his music and he openly thanks God in response to his success. Another factor that comes into play is that he is often praised on his public image and media involvement – making him a great choice.

Stormzy will conduct a reading on a passage from The Gospel Of Luke, this shares the story of the arrival of angels to shepherds and signifies the birth of Christ. Following this reading, there will be a performance of The Basque Carol Sing Lullaby performed by The South London Boys Choir Libera. A very fitting choir choice, as it shares locational significance to the rapper.

The reading will air at 11:50pm on Christmas day and will be viewable on BBC One.
