Wiley has scrapped his new album after spending $42,000 on recording sessions.

The East London-rapper has revealed he isn't happy following the completion of his ninth studio album 'Snakes and Ladders' and took to Twitter on Monday (03.02.14) to tell fans he plans to start the project from scratch.

Wiley wrote: ''I am gonna scrap snakes and ladders and start again cos I ain't happy with it ... Needs to be epic or else there is no point. (sic)

''Start from scratch ... I very rarely do this that's why I am gonna try it. (sic)''

The album was set to feature collaborations with fellow Grime stars - Lethal Bizzle, Devlin and US rapper Cam'ron - but fans hoping Wiley would unveil the unwanted tracks for free will be left disappointed as he claims they cost him too much money to give away.

He added: ''I ain't leaking s**t either ... not this time I'm 42 thousand dollars in ....NOLEAKS LOL (sic)''

The news comes after the 'Holiday' rapper reportedly refused to refund the £15,000 fee he had been paid to perform at Cumbria's Cockrock festival last July, which he played for only 15 minutes before being booed off stage.
