Just nineteen years of age, Dizzee Rascal is tearing up all the rule books and setting the music world alight with his raw talent. His thought-provoking lyrics, distinctively piercing and poignant delivery, and original production have made him one of the hottest new stars of the urban scene, and yet one impossible to pigeonhole.
Influenced by the varied music he grew up listening to, from the ghetto-fabulous sounds of US hip-hop and R'n'B, the home-grown sounds of drum'n'bass and UK garage, to bands such as Sepultura, Nirvana and Sham 69, Dizzee Rascal is the voice of a brand new British sound.
His debut album 'Boy in da Corner' was hailed as one of the most exciting and innovative British releases of recent years, and was awarded the prestigious Mercury Music Award in 2003. Since then, Dizzee has gone from strength to strength, with a string of live PA's (including support slots with Justin Timberlake, and a guest appearance on stage with N.E.R.D), recieving an innnovation award at the recent NME Awards, and building his reputation Stateside.
Dizzee's second album 'Showtime' is released on XL Recordings on 6th September 2004.
