MC tag team update a grime classic.

First heard on Mistajam’s Radio 1 show last month, Dizzee Rascal and Fekky’s collaboration ‘Still Sittin’ Here’ has now been given the video treatment in classy monochrome (well, classy until the nipple patches appear).

It’s refreshing to hear Dizzee step away from the bright lights and infinity pools of Calvin Harris World™ to revisit his grime roots, specifically his own track ‘Sittin’ Here’, the opener to his 2002 debut masterpiece Boy In Da Corner. Given a bass-heavy refix and joined by South London MC Fekky, Dizzee knows his audience for this one: “But you don’t wanna hear me complain about the pitfalls of fame.”

You can pre-order the single now on iTunes. Last year FACT’s Tom Lea was joined by grime authorities Dan Hancox and Mr. Beatnick for a roundtable discussion about the legacy of Boy In Da Corner.
