Richard Kylea Cowie MBE, or Wiley, is one of the most innovative and influential musicians of today. Over the course of 20 years he has redefined British music: releasing 10 top-20 singles, selling over four million records and helping to launch a new generation of stars. He started a movement in East London in the early 2000s that is now beginning to take over the world.
Eskiboy tells his story in full, for the first time, from childhood trauma to white-label releases, to lifetime achievement awards and beyond. In 96 short chapters, it covers the friendships and rivalries and the tragedies and triumphs of two decades in music and explores the history and future of grime and the Eskimo Sound.
