Details

Following the release of new album RASKIT, Dizzee Rascal will head out on a major tour of the UK this October.

RASKIT, Dizzee’s sixth album and first in four years, returns the compliment of Drake’s recent grime-flavoured mixtape - and with interest. It teams precision-tooled beats from a stellar array of US producers (Valentino Khan, Cardo and Paul Salva among them) with the sound of Britain’s finest MC - bar none, in a field of his own, champion of a league of one -  “rapping my arse off”. The result  is a spiraling sub-bass vortex of introspective jeep-beats which takes the man Jeremy Paxman called Mr Rascal right back to his roots, but with a hip-hop twist Jay-Z or E40 would be proud of.

“The idea of trying to be my 17 year old self again just because everyone thinks grime’s landed in their lap this week didn’t satisfy me”, Dizzee explains. “I wanted to use what I’ve learned to make the best rap album I could, with no hands in the air moments, just using as much English slang as I could over the best beats I could find”.
