Dizzee Rascal: I Don't Need a Reason
on 08 September 2013
East London rapper Dizzee Rascal is going full force with his new effects-laden video for "I Don't Need a Reason." In an 18th century Versailles-like setting, the video's political subtext of British colonial rule by an all black court may get lost on some viewers, which is understandable due to the mesmerizing, animated GIF-style of the video. While it's worth a look just to see Dizzee Rascal partying in full period garb with wacky looped effects, the track carries the upbeat, high-energy UK grime style he's known for.
