Knowledge story, The Knowledge

Dizzee Rascal has stepped into the breach created by injured Brit rapper Example at Sandance. UK hitmaker Rascal has four UK number one singles and five hit albums to date. As a pioneer of the burgeoning grime genre, he has picked up a string of awards including the coveted Mercury Prize, an NME Award for innovation and a Brit Award for Best Male. Ironically, Dizzee pulled out of Sandance in April this year because of medical reasons. He was replaced by Tinchy Stryder.
