Dizzee Rascal's breakout debut, Boy In Da Corner turned 15 on July 21 and the grime MC marked the occasion with a fitting tribute on Instagram. Speaking about the album that saw the then 17-year-old establish himself, Dizzee explained that he hadn't had chance to reflect on what the record means to him until recently.
"When I made this album there was so much going on that I never actually got to enjoy it or even take in what I’d done I just moved straight on to the next album (Showtime) and travelled the world doing shows," he wrote. "It’s taken a while to actually register how much it means to people because I’m at the center of it and constantly trying to come up with something new but I love that it made so many people feel something and even helped make some people’s lives a little bit better."
He ended the post by promising more will come in the future. "I promise I will be around for another 15 years doing exactly what the fuck I want with music and maybe I’ll make something as good as #boyindacorner again.."
Dizzee Rascal's most recent album, Raskit, was released in 2017.
