Since kicking off his career back in 2003, as a 19 year old from East London, his raw talent and distinct British sound was hotly tipped to revolutionise the urban scene. Rightly so as his debut album Boy In Da Corner earned him the coveted British Mercury Prize that year, making him the youngest person to receive the accolade.
This year Dizzee will be back for a headline tour in celebration of his new album! September 2013 saw the release of his fifth album, appropriately titled 'The Fifth'.
There is no denying that Dizzee Rascal was made for the world stage and his latest installment has us eagerly awaiting his return to our shores – you will not want to miss out on seeing him make the crowd go absolutely bonkers!
See Dizzee live April 30th at Vector Arena, Auckland, and May 1st at TSB Arena, Wellington.
