Dizzee Rascal

Unique, that's the first word that comes to my mind when I hear Dizzee Rascal. If you already, clicked on the video above, you know Dizzee Rascal is not your everyday MC. The UK native blends Garage and Rap to create a genre he pioneered, known as Grime. He created the unique sound with a completely new class of beats (self-produced), a flow that can't be compared to any other rapper, and a wide range in his lyrics. While the name means nothing to my generation, Rascal gained a helluva lot of traction in 2003 with his debut album Boy In Da Corner. The album has been praised as one of the top albums of 2003 by Rolling Stone, and one of the top albums of the decade by Pitchfork. The best part of this is that he made the album when he was 18.
