Wiley promised on the album and Godfather definitely did not disappoint.
We’ve had to wait a while for the Godfather to come through with the album but i guess it’s safe to say that it was worth the wait.
The 17 track album sees Wiley bring in some of the coldest and Legendary MCs in the UK Urban Scene. Skepta, Jme, Frisco, Chip, Flowdan, Devlin, Ice Kid, J2K, Lethal Bizzle, P Money, Newham Generals, President T, Ghetto, Scratchy, Little D, Jamakabi and Belly all featured on the album.

Prior to the album release, we got to listen to some of the tracks on the project such as “Can’t Go Wrong”, “Holy Grime”, “U Were Always” and “Speakerbox” but there’s no doubt that he left the best for album only.
The track with Chip, Ice Kid and Little D “On This” is an incredible one – not just solely the track itself, but the history behind the collaboration.
Could Godfather Be Wiley’s Last Album ?
The Godfather himself revealed in a interview with Noisey, that the album would be his last but then again that’s very debatable and we really hope not.
“This is my last album, in theory,You know, Wiley the brand, you’re not going to see me trying to cane the arse out of tens of Wileys, you will not. I’ll always use my money to do other, smart things.” – He Said.
In an interview with NME, Wiley also mentioned that ‘Godfather’ would be his last album , citing age as the main reason behind it.
“In fact, the real reason this is called ‘Godfather’, is because it’s probably the last Wiley album.” Sorry: WHAT? “I’m nearly 40. I can’t be jumping about like a 20-year-old anymore.” But plenty of artists continue making music after they’re 40. Look at The Rolling Stones! “The Rolling Stones are different. They sing; melody is the key in what they do. What we do is like punk rock – we’re shouting. You can’t shout for 20 years. You’ll go mad in the head.”
