Dizzee Rascal is back with new album 'The Fifth' with debut single 'H-Town' (Video)

Dizzee Rascal Releases 2013 Album Debut Track 'H Town' Ft. Bun-b And Trae The Truth.

Dizzee Rascal is back and as he prepares to unleash his monster new album 'The Fifth' due this summer, he drops debut track 'H-Town' featuring hip hop legend and godfather of the dirty south, Bun-B and Houston's king of the streets Trae The Truth.

Shot in Houston, Texas over the mammoth All Star Weekend, Dizzee took to the streets with Bun-B and friends Trae Tha Truth, Truck Buck and The Trill Gladiators to make the video. Produced by Oligee and turntable wizard and Kanye go-to A-Trak. 'H-Town' first debuted on Dirtee TV The Mixtape Vol.2 earlier this year. Dizzee said ' the collaboration for this song started with Bun, I came to Houston and had a good time and it stuck with me, I was doing a mixtape at the time and I ended up writing about it and recorded it, I sent it to Bun and he got on it straight away. When I came to Atlanta to record the album I saw Trae in the studio and we decided to do the video.'

It's hard to believe ten years have now passed since Dizzee Rascal's Mercury prize-winning debut album Boy In Da Corner set fire to the UK Garage and Brit-rap rulebooks to leave listeners basking blissfully in the toxic fumes. 'The Fifth' , Dizzee's first album since signing a multi-million pound worldwide deal with Universal, forsakes the UK urban comfort zone by putting together "a crack team of experts" on a Dirty Dozen-style mission to "go for the global jugular".

With countless accolades and industry awards under his belt including coveted Mercury Music Prize, Ivor Novello, Brit and most recently a landmark performance at the 2012 Olympics, broadcast to an estimated nine hundred million people; watch yourselves, Dizzee is back.

I just cannot take Briitsh rapping seriously. The accent just doesn't work with it.

RME why doesn't their accent work with it, it is not like they are posh they have the same background as most American rappers.
backincharge 6th-Jul-2013 02:24 am (UTC)
Stop. Just because I PERSONALLY don't prefer it doesn't mean I'm saying that you have to think so too.

Good god.

At first I was like Yay! Dizzee Rascal and Houston. I'm not sure about this song. It's like someone got pepperjack in my Nutella. Two great tastes that are weird together and I'm not sure if I like it or not.

Seriously, I love him. I just wish he was in my part of the state some I throw this pussy at him.
