Scared of success. Wasteman. He'll never do it on his own.

oh my god, this idiot above obviously has no idea what the music industry is like. I fucking love Wiley, and I love the fact that he posted it up for everyone to understand. What a don.

wiley has made every one of his mistakes a matter of public record. every tune he made, whether it was shit or not, saw some kind of release. Every business idea he has failed on, every thing he quit or didn't show up to or didnt follow through on, everybody knows about. every "retirement" every silly music video. everything. The one thing you can count on is that he will always be turning out music. I love him.

Who the fuck is advising Wiley??? RULE NUMBER 1 - EVERY PENNY A LABEL SPENDS ON AN ARTIST IS RECOUPED

HOW THE FUCK DID HE NOT KNOW THAT - its his manager and his lawyers and all his advisers jobs to tell him that

Fucking Numpties the lot of them (NOT WILEY - he is an artist he deserves better representation)

i thought he had his own studio and label? sounds like his recording cost went up cause his label owns the studio and charges him too much per hour then rape you on mastering. its an old trick. i could have a studio and a vinyl press for 50k p check out djqbert's dirtstyle records everything was out of pocket and he never regretted it. now he owns a worldwide label
