Wiley – Treddin' on Thin Ice (2013) Lyrics

Treddin' on Thin Ice is the debut album by Wiley released on XL Recordings. It was released on 26 April 2004. The album is seen as a critical success in grime music. However, commercially the album did not do as well, with one single (“Wot Do U Call It”, a song addressing the debate over the categorization of grime music) making the top 40 in the UK music charts.

The album is seen as the ‘blueprint’, or first step towards success for the grime genre, and many artists have cited Treddin' on Thin Ice to be the pinnacle of grime, before Wiley began taking a slightly different direction with later works, such as the 2008 album See Clear Now — in particular the UK number 2 single “Wearing My Rolex”, which takes a more dance-style approach.
