Dizzee Rascal: ‘I’d love to work with Dave Grohl’

'Bonkers' rapper wants him the Foo Fighters man on his next album

Dizzee Rascal is eyeing up a collaboration with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl for his next album.

The rapper, who has previously said that he will not be touring or recording in 2011, told The Sun that he’d love to get in the studio with Grohl.

Dizzee has previously collaborated with the Arctic Monkeys, something which he described as “second nature” and also said he would love to collaborate with Outkast‘s Andre 3000 and Kanye West.

He said:

I’d like to to work with Kanye West and Andre 3000. But Dave Grohl is the one – I met him last year and he was really cool. I’ve loved him since his Nirvana days. I love the way he carries himself. He refused to live in the shadow of Nirvana. He’s carved his own thing.

He continued:

I’d love to have him in the studio just to see how he views things. I’ve done rock with the Arctic Monkeys and it was just second nature. I’d love for Dave to produce a track, or just get his perspective and get some of the shit he knows. Next album, I’d love to.

The rapper released his fourth album ‘Tongue N’Cheek’ in 2009 and is expected to release the follow-up at some point in 2012.
