Wiley thinks Stormzy is leading the new generation of grime and praised the rapper for pushing ''different doors and different barriers''.
The 'Can You Hear Me?' hitmaker is really ''happy'' for the 'Shut Up' rapper for all of his success and hopes each generation going forward will bring something new to the grime genre.
He said: ''I'm happy man, big up Stormzy. I'm happy for him - I feel like he's pushed different doors and different barriers that needed to be pushed. I feel like different generation will do different things.

Fresh off his Mercury Prize victory, Skepta is nominated for four MOBO Awards, with Kano and Laura Mvula getting four nods each.
The recent ascendency of grime to the British mainstream has once again been confirmed with the nominations for the 2016 Mobo Awards, with Kano and recent Mercury Prize winner Skepta both receiving multiple nominations.
Skepta, whose album Konnichiwa scooped the prestigious Mercury Prize last week, edging out records by the heavily-favoured David Bowie and Radiohead, is nominated for three awards, including Best Male, Best Album and Best Grime Act.

Bowie's final album 'Blackstar', along with 11 other British albums released in the last year, made the shortlist announced on Thursday.
Radiohead, Skepta, The 1975 and the late David Bowie are the big names to have been shortlisted for the 2016 Hyundai Mercury Music Prize, with Adele and previous winner James Blake the notable absences.
The 12-strong shortlist, picked by a panel of music critics, industry figures and artists, was announced on Thursday morning (August 4th) on BBC Radio 6 Music. David Bowie’s 25th and final album Blackstar, released just two days before his death in January this year, is already being touted as one of the favourites to win the overall prize when the winner is announced on September 15th.
Radiohead’s recent album A Moon Shaped Pool makes the Oxford five-piece the most nominated act in Mercury Prize history. Their albums OK Computer, Amnesiac, Hail To the Thief and In Rainbows all made shortlists in previous years, and this doesn’t even count lead singer Thom Yorke’s nomination for his 2006 solo album The Eraser. However, they have not yet won the award.
