New Dizzee Rascal – Wanna Be
by Winston "Stone" Ford
The Internets are graced latest track from Dizzie Rascal, my uncle’s new favorite (favourite) rapper. (Seriously!) “Wanna Be” is the latest UK single from the London rapper’s album Maths and English, and definitely more vintage Dizzee, compared with the first single “Sirens,” that we heard a couple of months ago. I was about to cringe when I heard that its a collabo with Lily Allen, but its actually a nice touch. I haven’t gotten my hands on the leaked copy, but the songs on his MySpace page are solid. I’m really hoping that this dude can make a real play for the US this time around (collaborating with UGK might help), but his last two albums have met with its fair share of haters in the hip-hop community.

Anyway, I’m out for the weekend.
There is a slight chance I might head up to New York. I’ll let you know. False alarm . Can’t make it up this weekend.
