Dizzee Rascal Lashes Out At Radio 1

"You’re full of shit bar the specialists..."
Dizzee Rascal

Dizzee Rascal has lashed out at Radio 1, taking aim at their censorship and playlist policies.

Dizzee Rascal has enjoyed a near unbroken, decade-long run of success. Yet his new album 'The Fifth' has marked something of a step back: poorly received by fans and critics, it stalled at number ten on the official charts.

Since then, 'Something Really Bad' has dropped off the Radio 1 playlist, sparking a furious reaction the 'Boy In Da Corner'.

Opening up his Twitter feed, Dizzee Rascal blasted Radio 1 - although he did retain some love for the specialist shows.

UPDATE
Radio 1 have handed a statement to NME responding to Dizzee Rascal's criticism: "Radio 1 has given Dizzee huge support over the last decade, and while not every song can make the cut, we have playlisted three singles off his current album, so we were very disappointed and really surprised to read these comments."
