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.


Bone Thugs-N-Harmony - E. 1999 Eternal
To be fair, I heard this before the Snoop album. I had a friend and I used to go to his house and we played Donkey Kong on Super Nintendo, and this was playing in the background. I was like ‘wow what is this?’ and I think he let me borrow the CD and I used to play it over and over again. So this was actually the first rap album I got into. It was either this or Snoop, one of the two.
