ABC, as the Jackson Five once put it, its easy as 1-2-3: Dizzee Rascals third album, Maths & English, is the most complete, intense and thrilling British hip-hop record ever made. Bar none. From the Korn-inspired metal guitars of the barnstorming first single Sirens, to the vivacious Bugsy Malone-inspired backchat of Lily Allen (on the irresistible Wannabe), every track on this album seems to find a new way of grabbing the listeners attention. But the amazing thing about Maths & English is the way the huge number of different styles and ideas that it showcases come together as the perfect vehicle for one mans voice. Whether Dizzee is going mano a mano with American gangsta rap legends Bun B and Pimp C (Wheres Da Gs) or paying his dues to his UK heritage by collaborating with drum and bass legend Shy FX; whether hes sampling Lyn Collins on the straightest hip-hop track hes ever done (Pussyole) or going way out there to a Martial Arts film soundtrack of knives being sharpened (World Outside), it never takes more than half a bar of his raw, guttural, urgent rhyming to realise youre in the presence of the Rasket. The more musical ground he covers, the easier he seems to find it to be true to himself. As if to confirm that sometimes you have to travel a long way to get really close to home, Wiz controversial video for Sirens (in which Dizzee the fur trim on his parka marking him out as a true urban fox - is hunted through concrete walkways by redcoats on horseback) was filmed on a Romanian council estate. Theyve got estates over there that look just like ours, Dizzee explains, except there are still bullet holes in the buildings and thats in the nice part. Its definitely being opened up a bit because theyve just joined the EU, but away from the touristy part, its still a deep and eerie vibe. Its like my friend over there was saying, the fa_ade is thin - it feels like anything could happen at any time, and sometimes it does. You could say the same thing about Maths & English. On the one hand its easily Dizzees most upfront and accessible record to date Sirens is a UK half-brother to Jay Zs 99 Problems and full on party tracks like Flex and Bubbles will soon be turning up the heat on dancefloors the more melancholic Mercury Prize-winning debut Boy In Da Corner might have cleared. On the other, its as brutally honest and potentially confrontational as anything hes ever done. The direction changed a lot with this album, Dizzee admits. It started out with a lot of more reflective tunes about how sad shit is and what a fucked up world we live in - because that was kind of where my head was at the time. But then I started listening to a lot of different music - old Outkast stuff ,Young Jeezy, Dem Franchise Boyz, D4Ls Laffy-Taffy: that whole Altanta snap thing and it got me back into the mould of that jump up party shit, so I wanted to make banging tunes tunes that people can bump to and be ignorant to. While American influences were vital to the creative evolution of Maths & English, the album never compromises its distinctively British identity. Even when Bun B and Pimp C step up to the mic. Those are two of the most important rappers in America, as far as the hip-hop scene is concerned, says Dizzee, proudly. These are certified gangsta rappers. The real deal. Its not a joke... And theyre on a grime tune respecting it, and understanding that Im different, but in some way we come from the same place. For me, thats a real achievement for British hip hop. Where does the albums title comes from? It kind of sums up my philosophy of grafting, Dizzee explains. Numbers, words: thats what I do. The writing side is the English. The notes, the beats, the deals, the money thats the Maths. But its about going to school too, and how everything Ive learnt since then has made me look back and reflect on that. In fact everything youre thinking, thats what it is. Its not just Maths & English then, but science and history and art as well: a complete education in itself.> Yo dis is da official Dizzee myspace but please let it be known to all my fans dat I love u all but if I dont reply to your messages dont take offence I get hundreds a day and aint got time to answer dem all other wise I wouldnt have time to make my music but I love getting all your comments and believe I do read them all !
