UTA signs Wiley in global deal

United Talent Agency (UTA) has announced the worldwide signing of rapper and producer Wiley.

The Godfather of Grime will be represented by a team of global agents who will explore opportunities for him across a wide scope of services which include digital, endorsements, branding, television and touring.

Wiley was a founder member of grime collectives Roll Deep and Boy Better Know, alongside Skepta & JME. His Godfather II album is released April 13.

He has been recognised for his contribution to music with the MOBO Paving The Way award and NME’s Outstanding Contribution to Music. Wiley was recently awarded an MBE for his services to music in the Queen’s New Year Honours List.

Billy Wood, UTA Music Agent, said: “We are thrilled to be working with such an iconic tastemaker in music. He has played an integral role in elevating grime globally and still remains close to his roots. We look forward to working with Wiley and his team worldwide.”
