Biography

Pretty much everyone in Britain can tell you where they were the night of the 2012 Olympics’ opening ceremony. But only one person can say they were onstage in a specially-made ‘E3’ baseball jacket singing “Bonkers” to a TV audience estimated at nine hundred million.

“I was ready for the actual performance, so I just enjoyed it”, Dizzee Rascal ... Read more in Amazon's Dizzee Rascal Store

Editorial Reviews

2010 two CD deluxe edition including a bonus CD with 10 additional tracks including 'Dirtee Disco', 'Nuffin' Long', 'Marks Outta Ten', 'Heavy-With Chase & Status', 'Doin' It Big' and more. Tongue N' Cheek is undoubtedly the most upbeat album Dizzee has ever made whilst still retaining that lyrical sharpness that underlines his records. As well as three hit singles ('Holiday', 'Bonkers' and 'Dance With Me'), it features 'Road Rage', a thumping House track, and 'Dirtee Cash' which features a sample of a classic Stevie V tune. Shy FX, who collaborated with Dizzee on Maths + English, adds production duties to the carnival-esque, summertime anthem of 'Can't Tek No More' and Trance superstar Tiesto has provided the beats to 'Bad Behaviour', but it's 'Chillin' Wiv Da Man Dem' which is Dizzee's biggest departure to date: a classic, smooth-sounding R&B tune reminiscent of Tupac or Snoop Dog Dirtee Stank.

Format: Audio CD
UK Rapper Dizzee Rascal's first three CDs garnered him critical acclaim, his debut even snagged the prestigious Mercury music prize, but this hardly translated into commercial success. What's a boy to do? Grab a hold of trendy Dance music producers and create dance-floor anthems with catchy hooks that's what, and presto, did it pay off big time!

Three singles; the buzzing Armand Van Helden produced "Bonkers", and the Calvin Harris produced Techno pair of "Dance wiv me" and "Holiday" topped the UK charts, and the album has hit #3.

For the most part, the songs are catchy and fun, with his clever wordplay restricted to Girls, bling and partying. Other standouts are the funky "Dirtee cash" (which heavily samples the Adventures of Stevie V hit "Dirty cash" and itself made the top 10), "Bad behaviour" (produced by Dutch producer Tiesto), and the slowed down pair of "Freaky freaky" and "Chillin wiv da man dem". The Reggae-ish "Can't tek no more" samples Aswad's "Warrior change" and features anti-war social concious lyrics.

A very good effort, and I can't wait to see in what direction he branches from here on.

According to Wikipedia, Dizzee stated that with this album he has left "his grime roots behind, in favour of more mainstream pop". I find the music to be very heavily influenced by Bee Gees style "white" disco which is not something I look for from a hip hop artist. His rapping is as good as ever but I find the backing music less palatable. I thought that Maths and English was the perfect balance between hip hop and electronica but this record has taken it too far.

Dizzee rascal's 4th album entitled Tongue n cheek is yet another solid effort from london's finest emcee. This album has excellent production and solid lyrics.Tongue n cheek is a very enjoyable album to listen to.
