While we try to get the image of Pippa Middleton and Co getting down to Bonkers out of our heads, the MC exclusively told MTV News that he is chuffed his song was played on Kate and Wills' big day.
The 25-year old rapper stated: "Yeah Bonkers at the Royal Wedding, that’s good. You’ve got Royalty jumping around to a massive rave tune. Why not man. I guess it’s a sign of the times. Good luck to ‘em man."
As well as discussing The Royal Wedding, Dizzee today launched Bing.com’s National photography competition Your Britain, that gives members of the public the chance to win £10,000, and for their image to be on the homepage for 24 hours.
Dizz will be judging the comp, and to inspire entrants has been touring around Britain taking photos of areas that mean the most to him.
One such location was the new Olympic Stadium in Stratford, East London, with Mr. Rascal explaining: “I’m from round that way, in Bow, and the actual shot I took you can see the tower blocks where I grew up through the stadium so that’s one of my personal favourites”.
Although confirming there will be a couple of new tracks making their debut at festivals this summer (V, Ibiza Rocks, Belsonic) Dizzee’s in no rush to record his next album, saying: “Hopefully I should have an album out next year but I’m just enjoying living now, doing the label stuff, and getting involved with campaigns like this”.
