Dizzee Rascal recently got a taste of that famous Southern hospitality when he traveled to the Lone Star State to participate in February’s All-Star Weekend festivities. The London veteran ended up enjoying his time in Houston so much that, once he arrived back home, he got to work on a record dedicated to the city. Originally released as part of this year’s Dirtee TV The Mixtape Vol.2, and repurposed as the inaugural song release off Dizzee’s Universal debut album, H Town sees the artist showcasing his high-speed flows alongside bars from two local favorites: UGK co-founder Bun B and street mainstay Trae the Truth. Oligee and A-Trak team up to create the joint’s whip-ready instrumental backdrop. Feeling it? This is just one of many globally-minded bangers to be found on forthcoming full-length The Fifth, projected for release this summer.
