The follow up to his break-out debut album Boy In Da Corner, Showtime displays East London's Dizzee Rascal progression toward a richer vocal and musical delivery. "A year ago I was straight off road, straight from outside the off-licence. Boy In Da Corner is that perspective – back against the wall, only seeing what's in front of you. It was harsh, bashing around music. I've moved forward, travelled, digested a lot. That's why this album is called Showtime. You think I'm just hardcore, raw? I'm more."
