Dizzee Rascal wants to follow ‘Dirtee Disco’ with Marilyn Manson collaboration

Rapper says his sights are on the rocker next

Dizzee Rascal has said that he wants to follow up his UK Number One single ‘Dirtee Disco’ with a collaboration with Marilyn Manson.

The rapper, currently enjoying being top of the UK singles chart for the fourth time with the song, told NME that he was just as interested in Manson‘s visuals as he was with his music.

“I know he’s worked with other hip-hop artists such as DMX [on 1998 song ‘The Omen’], but I’d want it to be bigger than that,” he said.

He added: “I’ve always been a fan… he’s got the whole visual thing locked-on, alongside the music. I’ve got a dark side – I’d want to explore it with him in a major, major way.”
