Wiley and Mark Ronson vent credit crunch frustrations in song

Wiley: wants cash in his pocket.
Wiley: wants cash in his pocket.

We can't imagine that Mark Ronson and Wiley are feeling the financial pinch quite as much as most other people, but this hasn't stopped them from referencing the credit crunch in a new song.

The track, called Cash In My Pocket, also features vocal contributions from Ronson cohort Daniel Merriweather, and will be Wiley's new single (Ronson handled the production).

The track won't be released until January, but a viral video is already doing the rounds. This seemingly lampoons UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown and various other politicians; it's hardly Swiftian satire, but if you want to hear what Cash In My Pocket sounds like, you'll have to sit through it.
