Dizzee Rascal Preps EP and Mixtape in Advance of New Full-Length
NME reports that the six-track EP will arrive on January 1. Although the details have yet to be confirmed, this digital collection will be released on iTunes as a teaser for Dizzee's new album.
He said in a statement, "It's all new material and just a taster of all the good new music we got coming in the new year! The 'Bassline Junkie' video is gonna have people in stitches. 1 love!"
