Tongue N' Cheek by Dizzee Rascal
As a rule I prefer UK Grime to most anything the U.S. hiphop scene produces (I say 'as a rule' because there are definitely exceptions). Dizzee Rascal has a great lyrical style, and I love his faster songs. There are not enough of them in this album for me to really enjoy it. The highlight is the Armand van Helden produced Bonkers, which is one of my favorite tracks ever. Aside from that it's a struggle to find something positive to say about this album. I guess Dance Wiv Me has some nice little riffs..meh.
Stuckski: 4/10 (Almost completely earned by Bonkers)
