Wiley: "Evolve or Be Extinct"

Newcomers may have a hard time audibly distinguishing between Dizzee Rascal and Wiley, which is understandable... both have similar flow and both are lynchpins in the UK Grime scene. Somehow along the way, though, Wiley has been relegated to operating out of Dizzee's shadow, D.R. becoming the international face of Grime. Evolve or Be Extinct should change that any second now. There are a couple of misplaced, wannabe club bangers on there - de rigueur on any hip hop album these days - but for the most part it's a collection of inspired tracks, here playful and feisty, there thoughtful and on the conscious tip.

This viddy for the title track ought to get you sorted.
