Dizzee Rascal

Lulu Le Vay, X-Ray, August 2004

TUESDAY JULY 29th 2003. It has only been three weeks since teen ghetto rapper turned breakneck industry sensation Dizzee Rascal was pulled off his scooter in Cypriot Garage City resort, Ayia Napa, and stabbed, in broad daylight, five times in his back, buttocks and chest. He was kept under police protection until he discharged himself from hospital two days later. Poor sod. This, his first visit to Ayia Napa, was certainly not one for the holiday photo album.
