Star Dizzee Rascal spurns the attempts of fellow Grime veteran Wiley to repair their broken friendship by getting back in the studio, the rapper claimed.

‘Bonkers’ star Dizzee Rascal and Wiley have a long-running feud, dating back to when Grime music emerged on the national scene.

But now at 30 years-old and without the success of his rival, Wiley said he wants to bury the hatchet and make up for lost time.

Meanwhile, Rascal performed a star turn at the London Olympic Games opening ceremony, in east London.

Lifting the lid on the pair’s tortured relations, Wiley said: He’ll say we’re cool, but then another day I’ll wanna go to the Hackney Weekend but I can’t because he’s there and he refuses to be where I am.

“I’ve been wanting to work with him, but how long can I hold out for, bro? I’ve been breaking my neck trying to make it happen for years.

“If he wants to moan, I’m 30 years old, bro, I do not care any more.

“These people are their own men, and they can do what they’re doing. I’m always going to wonder why we can’t just let bygones be bygones. But now I just want to sell records.”
