Rapper has been getting down with Wordsworth

Dizzee Rascal has taken a break from music to learn all about classical English poetry, according to one tabloid today (April 12).

The rapper has apparently been brushing up on his Wordsworth, Blake, Byron and Keats because he want it to influence his new album.

Explaining the move, a trusty source explained to The Sun that the east Londoner thinks all the swotting up will “make him an even better rapper”.

It’s all a long way from ‘Jus’ A Rascal’.
