I never thought I’d find myself immersed in Grime. In a world of Hip-Hop domination, all Dizzee Rascal
has to say about it is “all I see is hype.”
Dizzee spits this sentiment on his latest record, Maths+English
, and it must be in reference to someone or something else; because this guy is anything but hype. The English accent might distract the ear, but only if you ever listened to Lady Sovereign
too much. With Dizzee it’s not between love or hate, it is just obsession; the guy knows exactly how to string together a beat that fits with his rhymes.
