In case any-one missed it on other places, there's a free mixtape released yesterday from Dizzee's Dirteetv label which features Dizzee Rascal prominently along with some help from D Double E, Footsie, JME, Newham Generals and a few others.
You can get it from dirteetv.com
It's pretty good stuff, with some ace appearances that probably overshadow Dizzee's bits. The best for me is just hearing Dizzee rapping over grime beats again as I wasn't expecting to hear that until his inevitable fall from grace in the pop world. I hope there's more of it to come this year but if not it's a nice new year present anyway.
In other news...we've heard about Kanye moving to London to embarrass himself in fashion or some other foolish endeavour but it seems that he's bringing his labelmates with him. Big Sean, Kid Cudi, Common, John Legend, Cyhi Da Prynce and Pusha T are all coming over to finish off the GOOD Music comiplation album. What are the chances they'll do a few gigs whilst they are over? Or even a big one together?
