Blur's Alex James and Dizzee Rascal bond over cheese

But is the bassist's homemade cheese better then the supermarkets?

Blur's Alex James and Dizzee Rascal bond over cheese
Blur’s Alex James has bonded with Dizzee Rascal over cheese.

The rapper revealed the friendship while he filled in for Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe, who is currently on holiday.

“Yeah, big up him (Alex), he gave me some cheese yeah,” explained Dizzee Rascal. “He sent me some cheese to check, nuff respect to that.”

Rascal revealed he liked the bassist's cheese – which he makes on his own farm – but said it faced tough competition from his favourite bite.

“It was strong,” the rapper said of James’ cheese. “Big up to that, but boy oh boy, it was hard! The best cheese I've ever tasted is (cream cheese) Laughing Cow innit, what's that? BabyBel you know that! It does the job you get me, it does the job!”

Meanwhile Lowe has got a host of acts to present his show while he is away, with Kasabian up next, taking over on Monday (January 14).
