There was much speculation thatShowtime, the second release from 2003 Mercury Music Prize winner Dizzee Rascal, would find this UK garage prodigy turning his back on the Hackney estates and tightening ties with the American hip-hop fraternity. Thankfully, … see full wiki
If you get this album thinking your going to hear rap somewhat like Slick Rick's then you are very far from it. Dizzee is bringing to us american hip hop heads Grime and I'm all for it. The Grime production is sick and very creative something new that will give you a break from the bubblegum rap that's being released over here right now. These aren't your average beats and if your wondering yes this is somethin that will knock in your sytem. To really get use to Dizzee It's probably a good idea to get his first album Boy in da corner or go on ebay and get the stuff you can't get on Amazon. For a lot of people it will take time before you get every word of what Dizzee says due to his accent but when you finally understand you will begin to respect his lyrical talent and his potential to be a great lyricist. Not everyone is going to be able to get with Grime and if you can't then something is wrong because this is some of the hottest production I've heard this year. Straight play threw album and I can't wait till his next release.
