Wiley has finally confirmed a release date for his autobiography Eskiboy. The book was originally due earlier this year to link with Wiley’s most recent album Godfather. Despite the delayed release, Eskiboy will be available in hardback and E-book editions from November 2, published by William Heinemann (with a paperback edition due in 2018).
Heinemann describe Eskiboy as “an account of Wiley’s life and career, from white-label releases and illegal broadcasting to lifetime achievement awards and beyond”. It features lyrics, notes and never-before-seen photographs alongside words from the ‘Godfather’ of grime himself.
It’s a relief to know what we’ll be buying everyone for Christmas.
