…as if we didnt know that! Great article about him in todays Guardian.
Dylan Mills is Dizzee Rascal, the 24-year-old rapper, songwriter and producer who won over the welly-wearers with his fabulous set at Glastonbury. Not that he’s anything like Jackson, of course, apart from being talented and prolific from a young age. Their differences are legion. As Peter Robinson put it in last Saturday’s Guardian, Jackson was almost superhuman, inventing totally new ways of dancing, singing and being. Dizzee, by contrast, is human to a fault. He raps about pulling his socks up, sirens, and – pardon me – “pussyoles”. Next to Jackson’s ghostly chalk, he is very much a cheese of the kind stocked in your corner shop.
