"For me, Dizzee is the greatest person I’ve ever known..."

Ah, the long and tangled history of Wiley and Dizzee Rascal.

The two helped to spearhead grime's first wave, two East London kids with incredible talent and undaunted ambition.

A now infamous incident in Ayia Napa spoiled their relationship, leading to a decade-long period of simmering tension.

Having previously made up the pair's friendship exploded into a Twitter beef last year, resulting in Wiley's send on freestyle track 'Flip The Table'.

Now it seems as though the two are back on even terms, with Wiley tweeting:

He has a point, undoubtedly. Expanding on this to NME, Wiley commented: "I’ll be honest with you. He’s done the most out of any black boy I’ve ever known in England. I’ve never seen anyone do more than what he’s done. For me, Dizzee is the greatest person I’ve ever known."

He added: "No matter what me and him say to each other we can’t deny the fact that we met each other, we had a vibe, and then it went wrong a little bit – he turned right and we turned left – and then he did everything he needed to do."

Wiley finished: "He didn’t do anything wrong in my eyes and so I’ve got no bad words for him there. In fact, I’ve got no bad words for him in any area."
