Aaron Bishop , October 28th, 2020 11:08

As Dizzee Rascal releases his first album since 2017, he guides Aaron Bishop through the songs that shaped him and how the artists behind them resonated with him from being the only black kid playing Nirvana on the estate to smoking with Snoop Dogg.


Project Pat - Mista Don’t Play
Jheeze! It just gasses me up every time I hear it. The production is right up my street, it’s dark, murky, hypnotic. I love the way he speaks just so simple and to the point. It helped birth some of my production style. Whenever I play it it just motivates me. It gets me gassed up man. I listen to it in the morning… I don’t even know how many times I’ve listened to that album. I don’t think I heard it when it [first] came out, I think I was still in school. What I heard before that was the Hypnotize Minds album that was out before that, but I ended up loving this one more.
