Stormzy and Wiley are arguing about Ed Sheeran again

02 January 2020, 10:04 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Stormzy and Wiley have had some online beef over the past few months about Stormzy's collaborations with Ed Sheeran, and yesterday (1 January) it got reignited again.

Wiley has been going after Ed Sheeran for a while now, and he's not afraid to knock anyone working with Sheeran either.

Yesterday's row started when Wiley was replying to a fan about responding to Jaykae's diss track "SHUSH". Wiley called Jaykae an "Ed Sheeran guy", and went on to write that "he is with Stormzy and Ed."

Stormzy replied to Wiley, writing, "I love you so much but you are so annoying fucking hell." In a separate tweet, Stormzy added, "all I’ve done is love and respect you leave me alone you weirdo."

Wiley responded saying he will "bury" Stormzy "today" (yesterday, 1 January), and then started to write some indirect comments on Twitter, including, "You and Ed look weird together", and "Big mike get the fuck outta here your done we are all better than you".

The Heavy Is The Head rapper has been replying to Wiley's comments pretty frequently, calling him a "fossil", a "crackhead", and a "dinosaur".

Stormzy then tried to push to get his "Own It" single featuring Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy to Number One. He wrote, "For just a staggeringly-low 59p, you can help wind up Wiley by making "Own It" with me Burna and Ed Sheeran the first no.1 of the decade! Download on the iTunes Store here!"

Their spat is quite a surprise considering Stormzy paid homage to Wiley on his Heavy Is The Head single "Wiley Flow" last year.

It seems as though Wiley is ready to battle any young rapper, as he even called out AJ Tracey's "Ladbroke Grove" song on Twitter yesterday (1 January), writing, "If you’ve been to Ladbroke Grove you will realise AJ Tracey song don’t match the settings so."

This morning (2 January), Wiley has continued to drag out his feud with Sheeran and Stormzy by mentioning Jay-Z in two new clips.

Stormzy's Heavy Is The Head album is out now. Wiley dropped his new single "The Game" yesterday (1 January).
