Sounds like we could have the latest and greatest summer jam on our hands, this time courtesy of bloke’s Dizzee Rascal and that ever cheeky Lily Allen. The track has a nice bouncing reggae beat to it, with Dizz’s trademark grimey, off-kilter flow. The new track comes courtesy of Occupation and will be off Dizz’s new album Maths & English.
Bonus points for Lil’s singing during the chorus, “so you wanna be a gangster, tell me just one thing. What do you know about being a hard man … you don’t have it so you might as well quit.” Always love the back and forth flow between the MC and the it-girl of the moment. It’s the sort of thing Gwen did when she was trying to ditch No Doubt at the door.

She’s just so dang huggable ain’t she?
