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.


Warren G - Regulate… G Funk Era
At the time I didn’t know it was funk but I felt that funk influence [in the west coast] was very musical. The east coast stuff was a bit more stripped back and was more rap. Now I’m older I can appreciate it more as I’m more of a lyricist and a rapper, but as a kid where I wasn’t no rap aficionado like that, that knew all the politics and ins and outs of who created rap and where it comes from or nothing like that. I didn’t know. I just heard what I heard and I just loved the sound of it and thought it was amazing.
