Dylan Mills, better known as Dizzee Rascal, is a rapper from East London. He’s known for his witty humour, skippy flows and his pioneering contribution to the grime scene.
Dizzee’s 2003 debut album, Boy in Da Corner, had a massive impact in the grime world but also musically for the UK — as for the first time light was being shed on the reality of life in rougher parts of London. It was a widely critically acclaimed album which brought widespread attention to the then 18-year-old Dizzee.
This, however, hasn’t stopped him from releasing grime tracks. Dizzee runs a label called Dirtee Stank, releasing songs from Newham Generals, Scrufizzer, Merky ACE and more. He also released a two-track grime EP in 2014 entitled Pagans, and collaborated with Fekky on a remix of “Sittin' Here” entitled “Still Sittin' Here”.
