After a heart­felt per­form­ance from Ed Sheer­an to mark the return of the legendary free­style plat­form last month, SBTV have teamed up with Dizzee Ras­cal in their latest F64. With a nod to his early days on pir­ate radio, Dizzee climbs the O2 Arena (over­look­ing his ends in Bow) to deliv­er a bit­ing 64 bars over a self pro­duced beat. 

SBTV have said: “He is one of the reas­ons we all do what we do in the UK, so it is a real hon­our to have him drop a F64. Dizzee’s career star­ted on top of rooftops hous­ing Pir­ate Radio sta­tions so it only felt right to take him to the top of the O2 to do what Dizzee does best..” 

Dizzee has said: “Jamal Edward is a legend in our game and I’m glad to be a part of his con­tin­ued leg­acy. This F64 is long over­due, big up SBTV!”

The Grime legend Dizzee Ras­cal will mark the 20th anniversary of his ground­break­ing debut album Boy In Da Corner with an icon­ic head­line show at The O2 in Lon­don on Wed­nes­day 8th March. Destined to become Dizzee’s biggest and most mem­or­able show to date, this unmiss­able head­line per­form­ance will take place in under one month’s time at the stor­ied, 20,000 capa­city O2. 

Join­ing Dizzee to cel­eb­rate the all-time clas­sic LP will be an all-star cast of spe­cial guests: revered grime vet­er­an and Boy Bet­ter Know co-founder JME, acclaimed free­style queen and MOBO Award win­ner Lady Leshurr, and MOBO-nom­in­ated rising star Back­road Gee. Remain­ing tick­ets are lim­ited and on sale HERE. 

On the land­mark moment, Dizzee com­men­ted: “It’s mad how it’s 20 years since Boy In Da Corner! That album changed my life and I’m forever thank­ful to every­one who’s shown love in that time. To cel­eb­rate two dec­ades on, I’m buzz­ing to bring some­thing very spe­cial to The 02 along­side some very spe­cial guests! Make sure to get your tick­ets as it’s going to be a show for the books”. 

Released in July 2003, when the innov­at­ive MC and pro­du­cer was only 18, Boy In Da Corner won the pres­ti­gi­ous Mer­cury Prize and remains THE defin­it­ive grime full-length. The crit­ic­ally-acclaimed LP saw Dizzee labelled “the most ori­gin­al and excit­ing artist to emerge from dance music in a dec­ade,” by the Guard­i­an. 

As one of the UK’s most suc­cess­ful and influ­en­tial rap­pers of all time, Dizzee Ras­cal is cred­ited to bring­ing UK Grime to the masses dur­ing its peak in the mid nought­ies. After Boy In Da Corner cata­pul­ted him to inter­na­tion­al star­dom, he has since worked with some of the biggest artists on the plan­et, such as Calv­in Har­ris, Arc­tic Mon­keys, Shakira, Armand van Helden, Florence and the Machine, and Rob­bie Wil­li­ams. He also has four UK #1 hit singles to his name — ‘Dance Wiv Me’, ‘Bonkers’, ‘Hol­i­day’ and ‘Dir­tee Disco’ - and six con­sec­ut­ive UK ‘Top 20’ albums - Show­time, Maths + Eng­lish, Tongue ‘n’ Cheek, The Fifth, Raskit and E3 AF. 

A fit­ting 20th anniversary event for what is a truly legendary album, Dizzee Ras­cal’s O2 head­line show simply can­not be missed.
