The list of what Dizzee Rascal has achieved in his career is quite something; a Mercury Music Prize win at the age of 18, his third critically-acclaimed album 'Maths And English' also being nominated for the prize in 2007, a massive hit with his single 'Dance Wiv Me' - (in the UK, this was the first single to reach Number 1 on an artists own independent label in 14 years) and winning an NME Award for the same single this year. That's just the start of it - in short, he's the most successful rapper the UK has ever seen.
He now returns with 'Bonkers,' the second single on his own Dirtee Stank label which is set to feature on his forthcoming album due later in 2009. Co-Produced by Armand Van Helden, it's a synth-heavy, genre-crossing, thumping house tune that will set the charts alight when it's released in May, with Dizzee proclaiming "Some people think I'm Bonkers / But I just think I'm free / Man I'm just living my life / There's nothing crazy about me / Some people pay for thrills / But I get mine for free."
