Dizzee Rascal to feature on DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill's dubstep album
'Bass For Your Face' will also feature Public Enemy's Chuck D as well as Danny Brown
The album – titled 'Bass For Your Face' – will also feature a guest appearance from Public Enemy's Chuck D as well as Danny Brown, Freddie Gibbs, Belle Humble, Roc Marciano and Killah Priest. It will be released on May 6.
Scroll down to watch an exclusive video for the track 'Sound Clash', taken from the album, which is set to come out on Ultra Music.
Speaking about the album, Muggs commented:
"What I tried to do was make this kind of record that real hip hop heads that aren't really into dubstep would like, and show them the similarities that I found in some of the early dubstep stuff. The stark beats, dark minimalistic shit reminded me of the early hip-hop stuff, the T La Rock stuff, the early Mantronix productions—just kicks, snares and 808s. When I'm hearing that, it's the same to me - it's got the same spirit, that underground spirit."
Dizzee Rascal will support Muse on their upcoming UK stadium dates. The shows will start in Coventry on May 22 before two nights at London's Emirates Stadium on May 25 and 26. The short jaunt will end in Manchester on June 1.
Dizzee Rascal is also set to appear at this summer's T In The Park and Ibiza Rocks on August 27. For more information, visit ibizarocks.com
