Back in February, Skepta dropped the Wiley diss ‘Wish You Were Here‘, firing shots at the Bow MC’s infamous absence at shows.

A Reddit user has just pointed out that, when played backwards, Skepta’s interlude on the track goes:

Don’t watch that
Hold tight Wiley, where are you?
Original
Grime

You can listen to the section played in reverse here.

The beef between the pair is something Skepta might address on his forthcoming album, ‘Ignorance Is Bliss’.
