“God knows that I been through the blood and the sweat…”

As his first album in over a decade to be solely written, produced and recorded right here in the U.K., Dizzee Rascal bring his a-game of E3 AF – it’s blistering beats, razor-sharp rhymes and slick production all a powerful reminder of the British MC’s important and profound impact, and influence within the British music industry.

Sounding stronger, sharper and more self-assured than ever before, the Dance Wiv Me rapper fizzes with an inspired and ferocious energy across all 10 tracks, his intense rap style and untamed lyrical delivery commanding listeners attention with each new melody and verse.
