UK Tings: Dizzee Rascal feat. Armand Van Helden – Bonkers
by Winston "Stone" Ford
Even though most rappers in the US wouldn’t dare rap over 120 beats per minute (save for Ghostface and E-40), UK rappers have always felt at home at this speed. So I’m not surpised that Dizzee Rascal would do a team up with US(!) bounce king Armand Van Helden. Even though the track is a little convoluted, I’m slowly getting into it. And by the way, this track killed when Nacey dropped it at the Nouveau Riche party last Saturday.
Bonkers is the first single off of Dizzee’s new album Tongue ‘n’ Cheek which drops in the UK in May.
