Grime’s lunatic genius Wiley has touched down at Glastonbury 2013, and between the rain, his pay and his team (his poor old manager John Woolf is getting it in the neck again), things aren’t going well. 

Here’s a selection of his best Tweets from the evening so far, and in order (bear in mind that 2013 has already seen Wiley leak his new album The Ascent, threaten to walk out on his label and more):

Update: Check out Wiley’s more reflective Tweets (“actually I respect his hustle and his farm”) from the festival’s second day here.

Soon as I land …Rain ffs

This is what happens when u listen to @Jrwoolfw leave the sun for the rain. I hate my team somedays.

Everybody is getting sacked .

Dear God Please Strike John Woolf Down.

Fuck it life goes on but I am pissed .Glastonbury ain’t paying me enough to leave my comfort zone …tight bastards

For those who don’t know I ain’t on the earth cos of Glastonbury or capital summertime ball …don’t dare say they made me cos they never .

Capital ball Glastonbury And wireless can all fuck off as far I’m concerned .

I’m gonna tell al the promoters how much Glastonbury get away with paying people and the other festivals will think wtf ..

People don’t know I prefer hackney downs or clisslold park alldayer vibes ..obviously …fuck a rainy festival on the West Country tbh..

@DJimmy_Wilson jay z had to wait till the end of his career to play glasto ..fuck them and their farm ….

And then, trying the direct approach:

@GlastoFest please cancel me I do not want to play for you ever again

@GlastoFest please cancel me without sueing I would like that …I’m fed up of coming to your festival I wanna do my own one

@GlastoFest tell michael eavis I dont wanna play please maybe he has the power to throw me off the line up …

Wiley, we love you. Never change.
