Like a bungee jump, but with no rope, but I ain't tryna see the bottom cause that's where I come from, I ain't forgotten

Dizzee Rascal at the Brits 2010

I remember hearing, when I was growing up, that award shows especially for music were just pure self ego sucking parties. Where people who don't even write their own music or lyrics gets thrown in rented clothes and sit on their arse praying that the winner, who most likely has just beaten them in the same catagory, falls head first on the way up to collect their award. Well obviously there's no exceptions, The Brits are just like the rest of them, generally it's the same people who have had a successful year/labels dug deep in their purses. who end up winning. However this year, there was a bit of washed down fairy liquid grime slotted in there! Tinchy Stryder and N Dubz were Nominated for Best British Single for Number 1 and Dizzee Rascal was, at last after all his graft, nominated for Best Solo Male and Best Album. Sadly Tinchy never won but Diz not only had the chance to perform with Florence & The Machine but also, won Best Solo Male. Let's be honest if he had lost we would of said "Oh well it's the Brits, some any award show" but since he won it does show just how far Dizzee has come from that boy in the corner shouting "I'm not a mook..." He's achieved all his chart success independently. Catch his Performance below and also his acceptance speech over here.

I'm tired of them rap neeks walking round in their akademik suits, Yankee hats with the flat peeks.
