Published Aug 11, 2009British grime MC Dizzee Rascal has some of the streets in him, for sure. Seriously, last we heard from Dizzee, he was arrested for assault with a baseball bat. And while there's usually some tension when the down-to-Earth lot run into the upper class, Rascal has admitted he was tempted to throw down when he recently came face to face with rambunctious rich kid Prince Harry.
In an interview with the Telegraph, Diz spoke about meeting the prince at the Wireless Festival last month in London, saying: "Prince Harry came in and was joking around and being a bit cheeky, so I told him, 'If you weren't royalty I'd have punched you in the face by now,' and he seemed to like that. He's a naughty boy, so he fits in."
He added, "[Prince Harry] and his mates are probably a bit wilder than us."
Along with threatening royalty, Dizzee Rascal is currently putting the finishing touches on his upcoming new record, Tongue 'N Cheek, which is due out September 21 in the UK. "Holiday," the first single from the record, will be out later this month on August 24.
Here is the recently announced tracklisting:
2. "Road Rage"

4. "Freaky Freaky"
5. "Can't Tek No More"
6. "Chillin' Wiv Da Man Dem"
