Dizzee Rascal is set to perform his debut album, ‘Boy In Da Corner’, in its entirety at a special one-off London show in October.
Dizzee’s album was widely acclaimed as a grime masterpiece upon its release in 2003, notably winning the MC the Mercury Music Prize. He recently performed the record in full at a special show in New York City in May.
And now ‘Boy In Da Corner’ will receive its special tribute in London on October 21 (a venue is still to be confirmed), as The Fader reports. Dizzee will perform as part of Red Bull’s RBMA UK tour, which is visiting Liverpool, Leeds and Glasgow, as well as the capital, across a number of dates in October.
A day before the show, Dizzee will appear at another Red Bull Music Academy event, ‘A Conversation With Dizzee Rascal’. The Bow artist will be discussing his career at this special lecture, which is being held on October 20 at The Yard Theatre in London.
The London leg of the RBMA tour will also see a workshop with this week’s NME cover star Lady Leshurr, as well as gigs put on by Atlanta hip-hop label Awful Records and London rapper Jay Prince, who will be launching his new mixtape with an intimate show at The Macbeth Pub in Hoxton on October 20.
