November 30, 2017

Eskiboythe official autobiography of the self-proclaimed godfather of grime, tells his story in full for the first time ever, covering friendships, rivalries, triumphs and tragedies, from his childhood to his chart success. Split into 140 short parts, he talks about the past and the future of grime and what he's experienced over two decades in music with never-before-seen photographs, lyrics and contributions from the people that know him best.

To celebrate the release of the book, Wiley and publishers William Heinemann and Blackcurrent have released a short film called ThisIsEskiboy, including interviews with the man of the moment, his sister, clips from the recent Boy Better Know takeover at The O2, all held together with an iconic soundtrack. The film gives an insight into what we can expect from the book and is essential viewing for all grime fans.
