This show was 1st in the global grime chart, 3rd in the global rap chart and 7th in the global hip hop chart.
On this episode of Unsung, one of the most influential British artists of the 21st century, Dizzee Rascal joins the show. In 2003, Dizzee released his debut album "Boy in the Corner" bringing a groundbreaking production style, now known globally as Grime.
Dizzee's unsung choice is Memphis rapper Project Pat, first making waves with Three Six Mafia which was founded by his brother. Pat's distinctive flow, playfully irreverent lyrics and taste for minimal, lo-fi beats gained him cult status and captured the attention of a young Dizzee.
Dizzee joins journalist and documentary film maker Kieran Yates about discovering Pat, his affinity to Southern Hip Hop and what it means for music to be a product of his environment.
