Tim Westwood had Wiley in the studio on his 1Xtra show in London to talk about Chipmunk taking issue with the both of them for Wiley’s prior appearance on Tim’s show. “You know what it is Tim, what we’ve done is, we’ve made a star, and he’s turned back and thrown custard tar at us, but don’t worry, because we’re happy,” Wiley said about the young rapper. “We’re happy, we’re still happy for him and we still wish him all the best, but maybe we got to him.” Watch the remarks via YouTube below.
