Eskiboy by Wiley is the official autobiography of the Godfather of Grime. It tells his story in full, for the first time, from childhood trauma to white-label releases, to lifetime achievement awards and beyond. Structured in 140 short parts, 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. Featuring lyrics, never-before-seen photographs and contributions from the people who know him best, Eskiboy is a celebration of a singular musical icon, and the world he has created.
