NEW ALBUM RASKIT OUT NOW
RASKIT UK HEADLINE TOUR
EXTRA DATE ADDED DUE TO DEMAND
Multi-platinum-selling, multiple-award winning hip hop star Dizzee Rascal has announced an extra date to his RASKIT UK tour at Leicester O2 Academy for Tuesday 10th October.
The added dates follows the release of his brand new album, RASKIT – via Dirtee Stank Recordings / Island Records. RASKIT, Dizzee’s sixth album and first in four years teams precision-tooled beats from a stellar array of 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 spiralling 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”.
