Dylan Kwabena Mills, better known as Dizzee Rascal, has evolved from cutting-edge pioneer of grime and hip hop into one of Britain's biggest pop stars...And the east London rapper, songwriter and record producer did it without compromising his startlingly original vision and persona. Paul Lester traces Dizzee's career, first as a pirate radio DJ aged 16, then as a member of grime collective the Roll Deep Crew, and finally as a solo artist. He also reveals how Dizzee's distinctive hybrid musical style and skewed observations of low-rent city life helped the 19-year old become the youngest person ever to win the prestigious Mercury Music Prize in 2003 with his extraordinary debut album "Boy In Da Corner". In this no-holds-barred account, read about Dizzee's brush with death in Ayia Napa, his unlikely appearance on BBC2's Newsnight, where he was grilled about politics by Jeremy Paxman, and the stories behind his hits and special projects. It's all in this, the ultimate Dizzee book: "Bonkers: The Story of Dizzee Rascal".
