Dizzee Rascal’s up to something…

    Dizzee Rascal, rap’s cockney grime pop king, is taking it down a few notches and letting the club kids across the UK and beyond dance it out with a new album full of progressively poppier blasts of his trademark rumbling kinetic energy.

    Due out September 21st, Tongue “N” Cheek contains both of Rascal’s No. 1 hits “Dance Wiv Me” and “Bonkers”. The album, with tracks produced by UK electro act Calvin Harris, is also his first album to be released on Rascal’s Dirtee Stank label, which he’s run since 2005.

    Rascal’s hopes for this album seem to be downright cavalier. In an interview with Angry Ape, The Boy In The Corner said he isn’t concerned with having any more No. 1 singles, saying:

    “I’m the first British artist to have two successive number ones on his own independent label. I never need to have another one again, though don’t get me wrong… it would be nice to.”


    The album’s first single, “Holiday”, will be released on August 24th. Those of you in the Jolly Old England can check out Rascal’s trip through the UK as he plays several large scale shows on what is arguably his biggest tour to date.
