Showtime is the second studio album by grime artist Dizzee Rascal, released on 6 September 2004 and 14 September in the United States. As of May 2007, the album has sold over 16,000 units in the United States-a decline on his debut album, Boy in da Corner, which sold 58,000. It has also been certified Gold by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) for selling over 100,000 copies.

Dizzee's first solo album, Boy in da Corner, was released to universal critical acclaim in August 2003, entering the UK Top 40 at The album would peak at In the same week the album was released, whilst performing with Roll Deep Crew in Cyprus, Dizzee was stabbed six times. After Dizzee was hospitalised, So Solid Crew. Following the success of single "I Luv U" and the album, the second single from Boy in da Corner was "Fix Up, Look Sharp". The single, released in August 2003, gave Dizzee his first UK Top 20 single and also became the biggest hit from his debut album.

Dizzee Rascal performs Boy In Da Corner live. A lot has changed in the 12 years since Dizzee Rascal first played here. The boy born Dylan Mills has become a bonafide music star, commanding stadium shows and performing at the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony, while grime, the music he pioneered, has gone from raucous upstart to global flavor with Drakeand Kanye West pledging allegiance. On Friday night, Dizzee returned to Brooklyn as part of Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York to perform his debut album Boy In Da Corner in its entirety for the first time.

Boy in da Corner certainly appears to have been born in isolation. It sounds like nothing else - which is surprising in a time when some people seem to think that rock and pop are trapped in a kind of terminal postmodernity, eternally doomed to borrow from the past. Presumably, they haven't heard Boy in da Corner, which appears to borrow from nothing other than the terrifying sound inside Mills's head. Disjointed electronic pulses pass for rhythms. However, whether anybody will listen seems questionable. If they ignore Boy in da Corner, however, they may well be ignoring the most original and exciting artist to emerge from dance music in a decade.

L ast night was Dizzee Rascal's sold out London show of his debut album, Boy In Da Corner – the seminal grime album for which he received the prestigious Mercury Award in 2003. It was the album that brought grime to the masses. After performing it in full in New York in May, Red Bull Music Academy and Dizzee Rascal took it to East London, Dizzee's home turf. Then he decided to make his music a bit different to what I was making. Where did the name Dizzee Rascal come from? Read next.

Produced by Dizzee Rascal. Album Boy in da Corner. go If you love me, let me know (Dizzee Rascal, yah). She used to love him, he used to love her She used to kiss him, he used to hug her Call it deep love or puppy love, they bunked off school Now there's no flame, things ain't the same Looks like she changed, thinks it's some game He's left in the rain trying to point blame, took. for a fool She moved on quick, he still lovesick She's not having it, thinks he's some prick He don’t believe it, wants it just the how it was in school He keeps callin' night and mornin' Break of evenin', break.
