Wiley says Stormzy is leading the next generation of grime.

The 'Can You Hear Me?' hitmaker is really ''happy'' for the 'Shut Up' rapper for all of his success and hopes each generation going forward will bring something new to the grime genre.

He said: ''I'm happy man, big up Stormzy. I'm happy for him - I feel like he's pushed different doors and different barriers that needed to be pushed. I feel like different generation will do different things.

''One generation might not get to do it all. The next generation will do the next bit, the next ones the next bit - it's building. We were the foundation, and I'm really happy that Stormzy got involved in getting us involved. Skepta too - happy what he's done to get us all involved.''

And the 38-year-old rapper is looking forward to Stormzy's next release.

Speaking about Stormzy's new album to NME, Wiley said: ''He can't let us down. He's worked too hard. He knows what to do and he knows what to say. We're good, we're sorted.''

It comes after Wiley claimed his new album 'The Godfather' will be his last record.

He said: ''This is my last album in theory. You know, Wiley's the brand, you're not going to see me trying to cane the arse out of tens of Wileys, you will not. I'll always use my money to do other, smart things.''

And Wiley previously took a swipe at fellow grime star, Kano, as he believes he put out his record 'Made In The Manor' at the wrong time as it was a time when the grime genre was fashionable.

He said: ''I think it was the wrong album to be made by Kano at a time when grime was in fashion. It was a good Damon Albarn album in the first place, to be fair. Why do I know that? I like Damon Albarn. You know what I am saying?

''I'm happy for him and all the success, but that was the wrong album to be made in this time by that artist. If grime is in and it's popping, and you can see Stormzy and anyone else bringing it back, and you're so good at it, you could have just given a fifteen track grime classic to follow up 'Home Sweet Home.'''
