Dizzee Rascal launches tirade at Radio 1


It’s safe to say Dizzee Rascal isn’t going to be doing any Live Lounge sessions any time soon after these tweets coming from his account over the past 24 hours.


Radio 1 responded with the following statement: “Radio 1 has given Dizzee huge support over the last decade, and whilst not every song can make the cut, we have playlisted three singles off his current album, so we were very disappointed and really surprised to read these comments.”

The tirade has given him more exposure for his latest music, and it may even have a positive effect on his sales. Robbie Williams’ Candy was banned from the Radio 1 playlist last November but still scored him his first Number 1 hit over 8 years.
