Wiley has accused Ed Sheeran of being a 'Culture Vulture' #Grime

The 40-year-old MC has labelled Ed a clout chaser, saying the chart-topping pop star has befriended certain people within the Grime scene in order to gain popularity.

Wiley -who is widely known as the Godfather of Grime- initially said: "I'm sick of people using Grime to look good for two minutes."

But, Stormzy -who has worked with Ed on the track 'Take Me Back To London'- defended his showbiz pal.

He wrote on Twitter: "Wiley you know Ed been doing this from early, been a real one from early, can't question that, you know I love you and respect you brother but nah don't do that."

However, Wiley refused to back down from his initial comments, posting a laughing emoji and writing: "Shall I get my guitar and foot pedal out?"

The Grime star -who previously worked with Ed on the pop star's 'No. 5 Collaborations Project' in 2011- added: "Anyone who uses us and our sounds are culture vultures... I'm getting my guitar and foot pedal out and I don't wanna hear nobody moaning about nothing."

Wiley previously claimed that Grime music has been "watered down" since it first emerged as a credible genre. Speaking in 2017, he explained: "No-one's had a Grime number one. Any number one that anyone's had, it's pop music."

"England is built on pop music, that's why the show was called 'Top of the Pops'. It's a strong pop market."
