‘Sweet’ and ‘grime’ aren’t two words you often hear together in a sentence. So brace yourself: looks like Tower Hamlets residents are continuing their rather sweet campaign to get formal recognition of grime godfather Wiley as the borough’s greatest twenty-first century son. Hot on the heels of the 2013 petition for Tower Hamlets council to erect a statue of Wiley, there’s now a Change.org petition calling for Queen Mary University to name its graduate centre, ‘The Wiley Graduate Centre’. Frankly, we’re fully behind it. After all, how many other people do you know to have dedicated an entire song to Bow? No-one. And that’s before you even get into his contribution to the controversial debate on London foxes?
