Dizzee Rascal - "I Don't Need A Reason"

Um. OK. So. This video fucking rules. So much going on here: Britain’s black population navigating a society that has a long and grand history of colonialism and pampered nobility, brain-melting video-looping effects, cartoon eyeball contortions, Dizzee’s own ferocious charisma. I could go on. It just rules. Watch it. Emile Sornin directed it, and the song comes from Dizzee’s forthcoming album The Fifth. But you don’t really need to know all that. You just need to know that you should watch it because it fucking rules. It’s below.

The Fifth is out 10/1 on Dirtee Stank/Universal.

  1. that dank role reversal kush

  2. It’s like the Old-Spice commercial version of a rap video.

  3. Part of me thinks it would have been better without the effect, if they had spent more time building this elaborate Louis XIV world starring Dizzee. Pretty cool video but anything would look cool played on top of this song. Dizzee’s best in a while.
