Wiley Releases 180 New Tracks Via Twitter
In a surprising move, U.K. rapper Wiley just dropped 180 free, previously unreleased tracks via his Twitter account.

Wiley appeared on the scene in 1998, via the U.K.'s legendary pirate radio, and began rapping over jungle beats, before founding his highly-influential Roll Deep crew with Dizzee Rascal and Tinchy Stryder. Throughout his career, the Godfather of Grime has made seemingly haphazard decisions: He retired at 28, later dropped his blatant attempt at pop-stardom, 'Wearing My Rolex,' and then fired his manager over Twitter. But his most recent stunt is perhaps his most random.
