Biography

Rising to prominence in the UK garage scene, Dizzee Rascal (born Dylan Kwabena Mills in London, England on September 18, 1984) took a set of decks bought for him by his mum and turned himself from a snarling underground MC into one of the nation's best-loved pop stars. Stabbed by a rival gang in Ayia Napa, Cyprus, after leaving his mates in garage collective Roll Deep crew behind he was catapulted to fame when his debut album Boy In Da Corner scooped the prestigious Mercury Music Prize in 2003. Acclaimed by the underground and now fawned on by critics, his follow-up albums Showtime (2004) and Maths + English (2007) established a mainstream audience, but it was the head-pounding infectiousness of singles "Dance Wiv Me," "Bonkers" and "Holiday" that really took his career to new heights. All three tracks went to Number 1 and with fourth album Tongue N' Cheek topping sales of 200,000, the clown prince of grime pop was finally given a crown, which validated when he won the BRIT for Best British Male Solo Artist in 2010. The proof of his pop princedom was in the pudding of fifth album The Fifth (2013), which was jam-packed with star guests including Jessie JRobbie WilliamsSean Kingston, Tinie TempahBun B and Trae tha Truth. For his sixth album Raskit, he took the production into his own hands while also working alongside a number of credible producers including Donae'o and Valentino Khan. In 2020, Dizzee teamed up with an all-star cast of UK grime and rap greats for seventh album E3 AF, which peaked at Number 13 in the UK and saw the star return to an underground sensibility and make a hat-tip to his E3 roots and the birthplace of grime.
