Dizzee Rascal doesn’t want to break America because he wants to be able to relax there.
The ‘Dance Wiv Me’ rapper has just returned from a holiday in the states and he admitted the luxury of not being recognised made him think twice about trying to make it as an artist over there.
He said: “I’m just back from America, I was just chillin’ and it was great. For me at the moment I haven’t got a plan. I can always go there, I’ve always had a presence there and do pretty much whatever I want so it ain’t really an urgent thing for me.
“I’ve already cracked my hometown the UK, Australia, so I’m quite happy with the way things are right now and we’ll see what happens.”
Right now Dizzee is focused on promoting the artist Pepper – who he discovered on UK TV talent show ‘Must Be The Music’ – and he admitted he is loving the opportunity to mentor up-and-coming artists through his own record label.
He told BANG Showbiz: “I’ve got my label and I’ve signed an artist Pepper who was on a programme that I did last year. We’re getting ready for the launch of her single and album and I’m shooting the video with her soon so I’m quite busy with her and my other artists anyway.
“A big part of my development as an artist came from the help I got from other people and being inspired by other people’s work so I just want to inspire other people too.”
