The original of "U Were Always"—a Roll Deep slow jam which featured Wiley, Tinchy Stryder, and Dizzee Rascal—was obviously never going to be repeated. For that reason, and its use of a sample of R&B girl group SWV's 1996 "Fine Time", "U Were Always" is a track steeped in grime history. Despite that, it was still a pretty hard track to get your hands on, appearing only on the Roll Deep album, Street Anthems, back in 2009.
Now, with (hopefully) a new Wiley album on the horizon, it's a pretty good time to get a suped-up, reinvigorated version, this time featuring Skepta and fellow north London spitter Belly. The tune's only just premiered and already the line I still can't work out why you would cause a big scene in Nando's has become a highly-quoted favourite.
Watch the "U Were Always, Pt. 2" video above.
It's not clear whether this will appear on the repeatedly delayed Godfather album (now due Jan. 17), but Wiley did drop the below video for "Holy Grime" featuring Devlin, the second track to be heard from the album.
Godfather drops Jan. 17 and promises features from Jme, Newham Generals, Chip, Lethal Bizzle, and P Money.
