    ...dizzee rascal (break) dancing

    Hard to believe it's only a week until Christmas. Of course, we've been celebrating the arrival of the big day the last week or so with our Twelve Days of Christmas Countdown. Today, we're up to Day #9.

    No MC carves out quite the mark on hip hop that London England's Dizzee Rascal does. His is a completely unique take on the genre; one guided by a solid sense of self, and the confident perfection of tailor made skills he's spent a lifetime developing. Never does he slip his accent under the radar; never does he fail to stay true to himself. No, the Dizzee Rascal you see here is most likely the same passionate cat who feverishly tuned into every slice of hip hop coming out of New York when he was a kid.

    Which I suppose makes this performance from New York's Webster Hall special. Here's Dizzee - an obvious scholar of the genre's storied history (check out "Don't Make Me Get Old School") holding down his own in a foreign city and country altogether. Though don't think he doesn't belong. The spirit of New York City hip hop is undeniably on display throughout Dizzee's incredible performance. - David Pitz
