July 21st 2003 birthed Grime’s first critically acclaimed classic. Dizzee Rascal shot to stardom with Boy In Da Corner and reflects on the success of the album on instagram.
When I made this album there was so much going on that I never actually got to enjoy it or even take in what I’d done I just moved straight on to the next album (Showtime) and travelled the world doing shows. It’s taken a while to actually register how much it means to people because I’m at the center of it and constantly trying to come up with something new but I love that it made so many people feel something and even helped make some people’s lives a little bit better. I promise I will be around for another 15 years doing exactly what the fuck I want with music and maybe I’ll make something as good as #boyindacorner again… if not I’m calling @robbiewilliams for the joint EP you cunts 😂 I’m playing (big up Robbie though) 1 luv! 👊🏾
