Dizzee Rascal and Fekky - "Still Sittin' Here" video

Original grime breakout star Dizzee Rascal is still famous in the UK, mostly because he rapped on some silly EDM hits, but he first made his name making some very hard and very weird music. Dizzee released Boy In Da Corner, his stunning debut album, over a decade ago, and if you listen to it now, it still sounds like the future. On the new track “Still Sittin’ Here,” Dizzee and fellow grime rapper Fekky go in over a track that samples “Sittin’ Here,” the opening track from Boy In Da Corner, and you might still get that shock-of-the-new adrenaline rush from it. Also of note: Dizzee can rap, something that bears repeating. The “Still Sittin’ Here” video is NSFW thanks to one naked lady, but it’s mostly a frill-free black-and-white rap throwdown. Check it out below.

  1. Boy In Da Corner is the hardest album to get people on board with, especially since I’ve since moved from Philly where I have a few friends who dig it. Most people think it’s funny because of his accent and the video game garage beats, and rarely give it enough listens to come around to its genius. Almost 15 years later (holy shit) and I’ve settled in to enjoying it by my damn self.
