Boy In Da Corner
Released January 20 2004
Then 18 years of age and hailing from East London, Dizzee Rascal’s unique hybrid of hip-hop, drum & bass and UK garage coupled with his explosive real-life tales of street crime, poverty, sex and guns made 2004’s breakthrough debut Boy In Da Corner a major UK hit. Dizzee was awarded the UK’s Mercury Music Prize, beating out the likes of Coldplay, Radiohead and the Darkness. Boy In Da Corner includes the smash single “Fix Up, Look Sharp” which features a Billy Squier sample.
