Dizzee Rascal has shared news surrounding his upcoming ‘E3 AF’ record, the grime veteran’s seventh studio album to date. Dropping October 9th, the project’s name pays homage to the E3 post code district where he grew up in Bow, East London.
The rapper’s last full-length album ‘Raskit’ was released back in 2017, earning wide-spread critical acclaim with a stripped-back offering that showed off the extent of his lyrical potency.
Announcing the news on Instagram, the London MC seems confident that his latest offering will be a strong return to form.
“I’ve spent the last 3 years losing and finding myself in music and I’ve made something flawless”, Dizzee stated. “I made this album for YOU!
“I want you to play it at home, in your car or wherever you want but I want you to listen to it all the way through and you better have some BASS!! The link-ups are mad and I didn’t come to play! You’re welcome,” he added.
The grime star was scheduled to perform a series of socially distanced gigs across the UK as part of Utilita Live From The Drive In, before they were cancelled after a rise in local coronavirus cases.
‘E3 AF’ is available to pre-order from August 20th.
