In an interview with Red Bull, Dizzee Rascal talks on being regarded as a music pioneer, saying “It’s amazing that a lot of people still regard me or what I’ve done as the benchmark.”
He continued, “I know that I’ve influenced a whole sound and the way people spit, even if a lot of kids don’t know because they’re too young. It’s always good when I hear people saying my old bars in their songs – it’s a mark of respect.”
The secret location for the event has now been revealed as the Copper Box Arena; Dizzee rascal’s stomping grown of Bow, East London.
