  • UK residents, whats the deal with Dizzee Rascal?

    I've been a fan of Dizzy Diz for years, but hardly anyone in the States has been talking about him since Boy in Da Corner. Is he still the boss over in the UK?

      Dizzy is still the man! You didn't like Showtime or his new album?

        i agree.

        he's lost touch with anything that once gave him credibility. selling out is the uk way when it comes to (i can't believe i'm going to say this) 'urban' music.

                Oh I've seen all his old freestyles from Westwood's show and the new stuff that he's done with Newham Generals. I suppose I'm biased because I have major respect for any rapper coming out of the UK. Kano was never big over here, but I loved that song P's and Q's and always hoped he would blow up here.

                UK's rap scene has definitely become more pop and less grime, but I feel it's less corrupt than the American rap scene, way less corrupt.

                  kano, wiley and dizzee are all going more mainstream. you should check out devlin and ghetto for stuff that hasn't gone too commercial yet.

                      Youth and Young Manhood was totally different to their current stuff.

                            Meh, I like his old and new stuff. His new stuff was more tr00 and kVlt, but his new crossover stuff is some funky ****************. He is a talented dude and a local boy to me too.
