adidas originals brings Godfather of Grime Wiley to Dubai for Sole DXB 2019
adidas Originals is bringing the London Grime scene to the streets of Dubai with legendary, UK grime artist Wiley set to perform at this year’s Sole DXB festival.
Dubbed, ‘The Godfather of Grime’ – a style of music inspired by rap emerged in London in the early 2000s – Wiley carved a niche for himself and now many others with his notable contributions to the genre.
Starting off as part of a UK garage group, he is best known for his mainstream music as a solo artist with chart topping records such as “Wearing My Rolex”, “Heatwave” & his most recent hit song “Boasty”, featuring Idris Elba, Sean Paul and Stefflon Don.
His eleventh album “Godfather” released in 2017 peaked at number nine on the UK Album Charts, becoming the highest-charting album of his career and bagging him an “Outstanding Contribution to Music” award by NME.
Wiley will hype up the crowd with performances across the weekend including an intimate set at the adidas Originals space before hitting the main Sole DXB stage on the 6th December.
