Reviews

  • "A glimpse of the 21st century rock'n'roll."

    Sunday Times, 'Books of the Year'
  • "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."

  • "Wiley is the pioneering force of grime, the most revolutionary musical movement in Britain since punk. Captivating."
