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.
