Maths & English (2007)

Details Release Date: Jun 14, 2007; Lead Performance: Dizzee Rascal; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Not one to slack, Dizzee Rascal, the Brit prince of bravado, has fused his grime-rap style with old-school hip-hop. The result is an eclectic, break-dance-worthy Slick Rick reincarnation, softened by cameos from mainstream sensations like Lily Allen (''Wanna Be''). That's not to say there's a lack of vim or vigor. In one of Maths & English's standouts, ''Sirens,'' Rascal channels Jay-Z; in another, ''P---y'ole,'' he's a compelling beatboxer. Consider this Rascal's bid for Stateside stardom — he's no longer that Boy in Da Corner. A- DOWNLOAD THIS: Da Feelin
