Dizzee Rascal – ‘Maths + English’

Disc, a mixed bag of style and continuity, is a sundry affair with danceable beats under hardcore lyrics and plenty of East End slang.

Released in the U.K. last summer, East Londoner Dizzee Rascal has added additional tracks and considerable angst to an effort that scored a Mercury Prize nom. Disc, a mixed bag of style and continuity, is a sundry affair with danceable beats under hardcore lyrics and plenty of East End slang. Highlight “Sirens” gives a nod to Slick Rick with gritty prose that paints a picture of police harassment over a rhythmic beats; “Hard Track Industry” and “You Can’t Tell Me Nuffin'” are fast and furious tracks that go straight for the throat.

The U.S. release adds the tune “G.H.E.T.T.O,” featuring dark orchestral samples that match the lyrical tone, and “Driving with Nowhere to Go,” in which Dizzee takes his time to tell his story over an easy beat and through gritted teeth. The U.S. release also offers a remix of “Where’s Da G’s” by El-P, which adds horns and snare drums to the sped up bassline of the song, thus giving the track a more accessible feel.
