Dizzee Rascal: "i Was Drained…"
Dizzee Rascal has spoken of his current break from recording, citing tiredness as the reason for his sabbatical. The rapper, who has tasted chart success throughout his entire career, has recently halted from recording since his last album, Tongue N Cheek, was released back in 2009...
Speaking to The Evening Standard, the 25-year-old went into further detail of his exhaustion. "I had just been going hard for like 10 years," he said. "It was non-stop. Since taking a break, I've been going on loads of holidays, I've been going back and forth to Miami and just enjoying myself and trying to live, and doing my little side things like photography and fishing, which are good for me. Musically, I could have just carried on, but mentally and physically, I was drained."
But whilst Dizzee has confirmed that he will return with another album, the east London MC is also preparing for life as a family man, as he considers the idea of having kids is appealing: "I'd have kids now if I knew that I didn't have to make an album or was just about to step into a bigger phase in my career. I'll wait a couple of years, but I'd like to have lots of kids."
