Dizzee Rascal to pen autobiography

UK rap icon Dizzee Rascal has revealed that he’s planning on writing a revealing autobiography.

The star – real name Dylan Kwabena Mills – has decided to document his ascent to fame from growing up on a council estate in London up to become a hugely successful artist. There was talk last year of a 'Dizzee Rascal Story' book, but it wasn't clear whether the rapper would write it himself.

He said to BANG Showbiz: “Maybe I'll write my autobiography next year. I tell you what it'd be a good autobiography as well, no holds barred. I'd tell people everything and it would most definitely be entertaining and inspiring. It would be a very frank book, no dilly dallying, it would be for real.”

The ‘Bonkers’ star also opened up about his earnings, saying that although he invested a good amount into his own label to promote artists, he has given in to one or two spending weaknesses.

“I bought a house but I suppose that's not really a luxury item, I bought myself a car though, a nice car. An Audi RS5,” he said.
