Dizzee’s new album hits September 30th. Includes guest spots from Jesse J, Tinie Tempah, Will.I.Am, and more.
It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Dizzee Rascal, 2009 to be exact, when he dropped his last LP, Tongue ‘N Cheek. The grimecee will drop his new album, The Fifth, on July 1st in the UK, which will include collaborations with Will.i.am, Tinie Tempah, Calvin Harris, Jessie J, Robbie Williams, Bun B, Trae [cont.]
One of the strangest, but dope, collaborations we’ve seen yet, Texas-by-way-of-London-via-Brooklyn-est-in-Canada.

Dizzee Rascal speaks with Zane Lowe about what to expect this year. He says new music is coming, but not to expect an album this year.
New video from Dizzee Rascal for the 5th single off the platinum selling 2009 album Tounge n’ Cheek. This track will appear only on a deluxe version of the album that will be released later this year. Check it out above.
We loved Dizzee’s Tounge ‘N Cheek album, but one complaint by critics was that he traded his grime style for a poppier sound (hey, we don’t mind Calvin Harris beats at all). With “Heavy”, he’s back on his grime shit and it feels good. Mad energy on this. LISTEN: Dizzee Rascal + Chase & Status [cont.]
Are they still doing mash-ups at these award shows? Apparently so, as Dizzee Rascal flips his own “Dirtee Cash” with Florence & The Machine’s “You Got The Love”. The original “Dirtee Cash” is on Dizzee’s currently UK only release, Tongue N Cheek, which is his most accessible and probably his best album yet. Dizzee took [cont.]
Dizzee Rascal is sort of like the U.K. equivalent to Jay-Z. Totally different styles and completely different artists, Dizzee is London’s rap media darling, always releasing albums to great critical acclaim and success.

The U.K.’s Dizzee Rascal became a bit of a household name a couple years back with his hit single, “Fix Up, Look Sharp”, which found the grime/garage rapper flexing over Billy Squire’s “Big Beat” sample, in his dirtiest British accent. Embracing his culture to the fullest, Dizzee’s an emcee who’s never been one to try [cont.]
Dizzee Rascal’s Showtime, starts with its title cut; a dissonant, sparse beat that feels like an intrusive hangover, over which his breathless flow ricochets in squeaky strange fashion. Oh God, not again. Why the hell do the press boost this guy over Brits like Skinnyman or RZA-collaborator Blak Twang? But then “Stand Up Tall” blasts [cont.]
