Dizzee Rascal, veteran of Roll Deep crew and winner of the prestigious Mercury Prize in 2003 for his "Boy In Da Corner" album has created what could easily be considered the definitive grime recording with "Maths + English" (also nominated for a 2007 Mercury Prize in the U.K). Definitive Jux will release Dizzee Rascal's "Maths + English" on April 29, showing the proper respect to a recording that offers a brutally honest portrayal of UK city life. The album will be released in stores for the first time in America as well as digitally. See full tracklisting below with new songs and remixes to be included on the stateside release. Whether Dizzee is going at it with American gangsta rap legends Bun B and Pimp C on " Where's Da G's" or paying his dues by collaborating with UK drum and bass legend Shy FX, there is a palatable sense of desperation and simmering violence throughout "Maths + English" on tracks like "World Outside and "Paranoid". The assault of Slayer inspired metal guitars on the just what the fuck have I done rant "Sirens" is offset by the smartass backchat of Lily Allen on "Wanna Be" proving that the more musical ground that Dizzee covers on "Maths + English" the end result is a perfect vehicle for one man's voice and vision.
