Dylan Kwabena Mills, better known as Dizzee Rascal, has evolved from cutting-edge pioneer of grime and hip-hop into one of Britain's biggest pop stars. And the East London rapper, songwriter and record producer did it without compromising his startlingly original vision and persona.
Paul Lester traces Dizzee's career, first as a pirate radio DJ aged 16, then as a member of grime collective the Roll Deep Crew, and finally as a solo artist.
In this no-holds-barred account, read about Dizzee's brush with death in Ayia Napa, his unlikely appearance on BBC2's Newsnight, where he was grilled about politics by Jeremy Paxman, and the stories behind his hits and special projects.
