The funny thing about that song is people are always asking me who it’s about, when it’s obvious it’s about me”, grins Dizzee. Hip hop artist Dizzee Rascal drops the video for new track “Wot U Gonna Do?”. The second from his brand new album, RASKIT – released 21 July via Dirtee Stank Recordings / Island Records and available to pre-order now. The track follows Dizzee’s return with Space and killer headline performance at Glastonbury last month.
RASKIT, Dizzee’s sixth album and first in four years teams precision-tooled beats from a stellar array of producers (Valentino Khan, Cardo and Paul Salva among them).
“The idea of trying to be my 17 year old self again just because everyone thinks grime’s landed in their lap this week didn’t satisfy me”, Dizzee explains. “I wanted to use what I’ve learned to make the best rap album I could, with no hands in the air moments, just using as much English slang as I could over the best beats I could find”.
