Earlier this year Dizzee Rascal said it was “mental” that he will be featured on the reading list of a new English A-level. The rapper’s interview with Newsnight‘s Jeremy Paxman has been included in the proposals for the new qualification. Writing on Twitter, the rapper posted a link to an article discussing the proposals and added: “This is mental! Good luck kids.”

Exam board OCR said the new course, which is separate from either the traditional English or English Literature A-Levels, will include an anthology of unorthodox texts.

In November last year, Dizzee Rascal was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of East London. The grime artist – real name Dylan Mills – grew up in Bow, near to the University, which is located in the London Borough of Newham.
