    Loved his first LP, and I think I love this one too, the beatz are blazin' :slayer:

    First track to stand out for me is 'Graftin' (bassline!!), I'm sure there will be more!

    been listenin to this for a while now (lucky enough to be given a copy a while back)

    graftin' is the first track to really grab u, really down n dirty bidniz, as shown in the lyrical content.

    speakin of lyrical content, raskitt has come on leaps and bounds in terms of flow, no longer goes off on a tangent as he did a fair bit before. really tight now.

    really feelin dream, fickle, learn (sample work is tight) and respect me (you people are gonna respect me, if it kills you!), that tune is another that rocks the sub a hell of a lot!

    only let down tunes to me are get by and face, jus dont really do it for me.

    overall 8.5/10 (more to come from dizzee dizz in time i reckon, hasnt yet reached his ten, but he will)

    Some groups or persons have a difficult 2nd album. Dizzee does this not have. After his first album the 2nd album is also very nice I could better say Very Good.

    So big up for Dizzee :respekt:

    Dizzee's first album was a storm 4 sure and it was always a task to beat that but he comes thru agen with lyrical deepness thats real to the "street" and well produced & mixed down beats and bass....a few spine tinglers.
    he's breakin away 4 sure! alot of messages to the US as well....
    ....big tings

    Sounds like he did that tune for a bit of media attention.

    If people are talking about it, it served it's purpose.

    The clownhop(!) tune was actually a song in the 50s or somewhen, first heard it on Zane Lowe's show while I was getting a lift off my old boy and he knew it from way back in the dark ages..
