Dizzee Rascal on Newsnight

I haven't seen Jeremy Paxman speechless before but, you know what, I think he actually was after his little chat to Dizzee Rascal. How he got onto the Barack Obama-aftermath debate is questionable, but the result was pretty hilarious.

Baroness Amos, the first black woman to have a seat in the Cabinet, and with a growing high-top that with love, care and nurturing could be as epic as Tempa T's, looked on in disbelief in the face of the Raskit whirlwind.

Dizzee Rascal talks about Obama, political parties, and Martian-man

The role of hip hop in Obama's victory is pushing the boat out a bit too far but, nevertheless, everything else he said seemed valid, and came with a complementary cheeky grin. Asked whether he believed in political parties, the literal reply in 'yeah, they exist, I believe in them' was a masterstroke.

One of the faceless Youtube masses doesn't think so, coming with

"Yeah they exsist"


You can see that education shining through.

Preaching about education and then spelling 'exist' incorrectly doesn't reflect well. Someone fling that guy a copy of Boy In Da Corner.

In BIDC times, Dizzee wouldn't act like this, he'd rather come with some more serious comments, 'cause we know that he is a very clever guy. But the fame has gotten to him, and I swear he's dumbing himself down on purpose.

yeah, that's probably true. He is a clever guy, but the interview was on his own terms even if he did come across as inarticulate to the people that don't know.
