Wiley, also known as Eskiboy (real name Richard Kylea Cowie, born 19 January 1979) is a Grime MC and producer from Bow E3, East London. Wiley has created his own musical genre, which he calls "Eski", and which is largely associated with the Grime genre. "Eskimo", from which the genre takes its name, is probably the best known Eski track. Originally performing under the title "Wiley Kat" (adopted from the Thundercats cartoon), he has now shortened his stage name and rarely is referred to as "Wiley Kat".

- LyricsOn a level
Still roll deep on a level
I represent the best MCs on a level
I don't know what they told you, but I'm not a mook
You can never be like Wiley, on a level
- LyricsI've been in the wrong system, the wrong territory, for way too long
If I say it's right and I show it to Johnny, looks back at me like it sounds wrong
Who am I making music for then?
(Ask him) Me, the label or him?
I go macho on people eat their tunes 'cause really Wiley goes in

- LyricsWhat would we do
Usually drink, usually dance, usually bubble
All I want to do is tell you I love you
That's when I start promising the world to
A brand new girl I don't even know yet
- LyricsIf I draw 5 for the day
Then we ain't got to worry, we're nice for the day
Inspired by the sun, take flight for the day
Sippin' a cold beer, sunshine in your face
Long nights are crazy we are on them
