    Subjectivity my friend

    And like I said, he's a mercury award winner... You don't win that by being "****"

    You're entitled to your opinion of course and I respect that, but he has a massive fanbase and that was even before he became "mainstream" so he does have talent.

    I'm quite an avid grime fan, so I'm bound to appreciate his music (well his older material), I understand if you're not so therefore I would expect you to think his music is ****.

    Subjectivity yeah.. but then you post this..

    I wasn't attacking you lol

    You just said it as if what you said was fact and not your opinion, things can often be perceived wrong on the internet.

    But yeah, a sensible post tbh, more music fans need to take this approach rather than just saying everything they listen to which doesn't fall into their tastes is ****
    Haha sorry. But yeah I agree, people should accept the fact that other people may like different music. I respect the guy for getting so many fans and what he has become, but personally I just really don't like his music.

    That's subjective. Cars and women are important. How else will you get to work, and women are important, you misogynist.

    Lowkey doesn't do music anymore

    And by raps about important stuff, you mean things you can relate to?

    You can relate to the tracks below? Seems to me he's just dissing another artist.



    You can relate to being selected in top 10 rappers on MTV Base



    Please...

    "Some people think I'm bonkers, but I just think I'm free, man I'm just living my life there's nothing crazy about me!!"

    Ohmygod so meaningful.

    And his other material is irrelevant because that's the song they keep playing! >.>

    I think you're a troll, but I'm gonna bite the bait anyway

    Look, I can understand the fact you think Dizzee is ****, I would if I listened to his mainstream music. Bonkers, Dirtee Disco etc, it's all mainstream garbage packaged to sell to the masses. It's club music, therefore it's not meant to be meaningful, let's just get that out the way.

    But can you honestly say that Justin Bieber has meaningful music? His music is packaged and marketed to the masses just like Dizzee's is.

    Music is a business, no matter what these artists are telling you, 95% of them aren't making the music they want to make. I doubt Justin Bieber even enjoys making music tbh, he just does it because he has the correct image and happens to be a semi-decent singer. Which is clever, it's made him very rich.

    If you like Justin Bieber then fairplay (discarding what I previously said in another post) go ahead and listen to his music. But it's very hypocritical to criticise artists for not being meaningful tbh.

    I'm not asking you to agree with me BTW, I know you will disagree with me, I'm just stating an opinion in a public thread.

    If you actually read the thread I'm complaining about how he's been branded and showcased to the world when I think others would benefit more, and give us a better name if so.

    whever people like it or not Hip-Hop/Rap/Grime is the biggest form of music in the world right now (Pop isn't really a genre it stands for Popular music so most of the stuff in the charts is Pop but "Urban Music" is definetley the biggest form of music in the world (along with Dance/Pop) and Dizzee Rascal is probably the biggest MC/Rapper from the UK (along with Tinie Tempah) sure he's no Kanye/Jay/Em but it's about UK music and lots of people like him and Bonkers is a good club song I take it all of you miserable ********s listen and pay attention to the to deep meaningful lyrics when you are in a club? nah thought not so get over it.

    There will be plenty of music represented including rock/indie not to mention ****ing One Direction and the Spice Girls so why shouldn't Hip-Hop/Rap/Grime music be part of it just because of your lowkey racism.

    I think that Billy Bragg's rendition of The Internationale would be more appropriate... and good for balance, but hey-ho...
    Billy Bragg was brought up in East London just like Dizzee Rascal and I wished he'd been a part of the opening ceremony, perhaps instead of Frank Turner.

    I'd like 'Mr Rascal' to be introduced by Jeremy Paxman, and someone to pull the plug on the Spice Girls if they are there.

    I don't quite like his music, I'm more interested in what's between his legs. #tripod
    I'm negging you because that was inappropriate.

    Is the last sentence meant to be sarcastic?

    Also, I can quote one song by an artist that isn't meaningful, even if they have a bunch of more meaningful songs too. Not saying Dizzee is the deepest artist even, but quoting one song and basing your whole argument on that is a terrible way of making an argument.

    Oh god are you retarded. The song which keeps being overplayed is Dizzee Rascal - Bonkers so if you think "Oh Dizzee Rascal is great because of this song" perhaps that's the song that should be played.

    I'm sorry, but why should I continue talking about this subject when you don't even have the decency to show common courtesy to others? And I don't feel like you've actually understood what I was saying either.
