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.


Snoop Doggy Dogg - Tha Doggfather
I must have been about eleven or twelve when it came out and it’s the first rap album I listened to all the way through. It was given to me by a friend whose big brother had it on tape and so my friend gave it to me and I played it and I was just hooked on it. It was like a new world to me. I was like what the fuck is this? I just kept playing it over and over.
