Dizzee Rascal - 'The Fifth'

Dizzee Rascal - 'The Fifth'

On Dylan Mills' fifth album, he's trying to do what UK rap has never quite managed: make it big across the pond. Artists like Professor Green, Plan B and Tinie Tempah have platinum discs aplenty from chart success at home, but none of them have...

Dizzee Rascal ft Robbie Williams - 'Goin' Crazy'

Dizzee Rascal ft Robbie Williams – 'Goin' Crazy' It's nothing new to point out that Dizzee Rascal has embraced pop in a way nobody could have predicted. His last album proper – 2009's 'Tongue N' Cheek' – produced massive smashes including...

Dizzee Rascal feat. Pepper - 'Scream'

Yeah: RUNNING! Yeah: JUMPING! Yeah: THROWING! Yeah: CYCLING! This is Dizzee’s Olympics song, which talks about “ gold ” and being a “ champion ” and stuff. It’s rubbish, like all the Olympics songs. But it doesn’t matter because:...

Dizzee Rascal Ft Calvin Harris And Chrome

There are many reasons to hate this. One: Calvin Harris, singing like he’s reading the disclaimer on a direct debit mandate. Two: the middle-eight, where Dizzee tells his quarry she “made a real effort tonight and it shows”. Three: the ‘in...

Dizzee Rascal, Newham Generals and Ebony Bones

So, after three critic-creaming albums, each enhancing his reputation as the UK’s foremost hip-hop/rap/grime/urban (whatever the frig you want to call it) artist, how does Dizzee Rascal up the game? “You wanna hear some new shit?” he whoops...

Dizzee Rascal
