When 'Lord of the Mics' Jammer, was recently pushed over on stage, in a shock incident at Wiley's long-standing event 'Eskimo Dance,' claims quickly started to arise that it was none other than Premiership football legend Ian Wright who was the culprit. The claims lead to a social media frenzy with speculation as to why Ian Wright would have been so angered by Jammer and why he was even in attendance at a grime event in the first place. With confused fans of both parties calling for answers to the many questions that were on everyone's lips, Ian Wright took to his own Instagram to respond to the whole situation. The incident then snowballed and the entire scenario made national news. Setting off a wave of hilarious memes (that included Jammer moonwalking) the story was trending across social media over several days. Read here.
This event lead Jammer straight into the studio and the result is a track called, yes, you guessed it: 'Ian Wright' and by the looks of things, Ian fully approves. In fact, Ian is fully embracing it and is also rumoured to appear in the video alongside a number of celebrity guest cameos from the football and music world.
Although born from a negative incident that would be pretty difficult for any artist to recover from, Jammer has been quick to show that there is no place for any bad vibes and has flipped the situation in to a pretty epic outcome that only he could do. Naturally pulling in one of the world's biggest Football legends and also a production courtesy of huge Australian producer: 'What So Not,' (who has previously worked with Flume, RL Grime, Dillon Francis and Skrillex), 'Ian Wright' is born as an electronic grime masterpiece doused in wonky baseline and topped with Jammer's lyrical skill and wit.
Known for his humour and creative genius to his hundreds of thousands of followers, Jammer is one of the foundational lynchpins of the grime scene. Part of 'Boy Better Know' alongside Skepta and also director of seminal brand Lord of the Mics, Jammer gets it in the back of the net as 'Ian Wright' scores with football and music fans, plus anyone that enjoys a bit of top entertainment!
