Dizzee Rascal – Tongue In Cheek Preview

Dizzee Rascal is back, and by the look of this CD cover, he’s coming cheekier and more outlandish than ever.

Tongue N Cheek is the fourth studio album from Dizzee aka Dylan Mills, and is set to be released on Monday. Featuring 10 tracks, including number one singles Bonkers and Holiday, this album promises to be the Bow rappers’ most esoteric work to date. Having already received 4 stars in the Telegraph and Observer respectively, it looks like Tongue N Cheek will have no trouble garnering attention from the media, cementing him as one Britain’s most influential artists.

Having heard live snippets of album cut ‘Road Rage’ on radio sets this year, I’m eager to hear what Dizzee has to offer. Despite his cheesier, but ultimately successful, dance explorations this year, I’m confident that he won’t have lost that inimitable cheek and stand-offish flippancy that first caught my ear way back in 2002. However, with a plethora of dance producers contributing to this CD, my worry is that it’ll lack the punch and urgency of his previous releases.

Stay tuned for a full review next week.
