Aged just 18, Dizzee released his first solo album, Boy in da Corner, which was critically acclaimed and peaked at number 23 in the charts.He was part of Wiley's Roll Deep Crew, which has featured artists including Tinchy Stryder and DJ Target, as well as Boy Better Know members such as Skepta and JME and. headtopics.com

Dizzee went on to have further chart success, winning a Mercury prize and the NME Award for innovation as he released his second album, Showtime.2003-2007 In 2003, Dizzee was stabbed five times while whilst performing with Roll Deep Crew in Cyprus - with the culprit never convicted.

The Guardian reported a brawl "erupted after [Dizzee] pinched the bottom of So Solid Crew’s lead female singer, Lisa Maffia". The publication said Dizzee was "dragged from his scooter in broad daylight and subjected to a vicious knife attack before he was due to perform at the resort’s Gas Club".

They added: "He was treated for wounds to the back, buttocks and chest at the Napa Olympic clinic, where he was kept under police protection until he discharged himself."Dizzee left Roll Deep shortly afterwards, and Wiley claimed in in 2016 that his long-running feud with Dizzee began after this horror incident.

"The reason we haven’t spoken for so many years?… Basically, me and Dizzee went out one night [in Ayia Napa] and there was some fighting with another crew… Then the next day, I decided to carry it on – I didn’t pull out a knife, I was just fighting," said Wiley. headtopics.com

"Well, after we started it up again, those guys came looking for us, but the person they found was Dizzee," he explained.He believe Dizzee thought he wouldn't have been stabbed if Wiley didn't continue the fight."That is the reason me and Dizzee haven’t spoken all these years," he added.

And in his autobiography, Ekiboy, Wiley wrote: "I wish [Dizzee] wasn’t on his own when it happened."I wish he’d stayed with me."That’s all I wish, because if he stuck with us, then it might have been a different story."Since then, the two artists have taken public jabs at each other on social media and in diss records, with Wiley claiming in 2017 that Dizzee needed him to "make him relevant again".

2008-2010 In 2008, Dizzee was struck by horror again.His ex-girlfriend, model Kaya Bousquet, who he had dated for two years, died in a high-speed crash on the M1 motorway.Kaya, 23, died with her two friends when a lorry hit their stationary car when they had stopped in the slow lane after running out of fuel.

Dizzee's music would then take off once again with four number one hits in one album, Tongue n' Cheek, including singles Dance wiv Me and Bonkers.In 2010, Dizzee won Best British Male at the BRIT Awards, and he re-released Tongue n' Cheek with extra singles including Dirtee Disco, which scored a number one. headtopics.com

He claimed in an interview that year that he was sober, refraining from both drugs and alcohol."I’m not having any alcohol. No weed. I’m not doing anything – except some boxing to release energy," he told The Independent."I’m tired of partying."

He also said he was "bored" of socialising, and preferred "staying in" to meeting up with "the same people" for "the same chat".2011-2015 But the following year, Dizzee admitted his sobriety had not lasted and he regretted even stating it.

"Do I drink [alcohol] now? To be honest with you, the whole living clean vibe didn't last long," he told GQ."My biggest mistake was probably saying it in an interview, to be fair. "I tried living mad clean – but I like partying as much as anyone else."

Dizzee would then go on to have several successful collaborations with Calvin Harris, along with supporting the Red Hot Chilli Peppers on their 2011 tour.He performed at the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony, and released his fifth album, The Fifth, in 2013.

He also received an honorary Doctorate of the Arts from the University of East London.2016-2020 In 2016, Dizzee collaborated with Calvin Harris for the third time on the single Hype, which reached number 34 on the UK charts.He was briefly linked to Khloe Kardashian, with reports the pair had shared a steamy night together in Australia back in 2007.

The rumour began when Khloe revealed: "I met a guy who was performing at the MTV Awards [in Australia], hooked up with him here and left. "He had to leave town and we both didn't live here, we all came here for the awards," she added, and many put two and two together and presumed Dizzee was the mystery man.

"I've met her, she's a lovely girl," Dizzee told DJ Vlad on his YouTube channel, but he denied "hooking up" with Khloe and said he was unaware of the rumour.However, Dizzee did reveal he tried it on with Kim Kardashian the day he met Khloe, and was brutally rejected.

He said the Australian host of the MTV Awards encouraged him to go and "chat up" Kim, who was dating Reggie Bush at the time.He claimed he approached Kim and greeted her, sitting down next to her - and she immediately scooted over to the next seat so they were no longer sitting together.

In 2017, Dizzee released the single Space, with a live-streamed teaser trailer, and he announced his sixth studio album, Raskit, which peaked at number 10 on the UK albums chart.He released an EP that included a track with fellow rapper Skepta, but it peaked at 68 on the UK singles chart.

Dizzee would then begin to appear on Ladbrokes adverts, with his song Bonkers playing in the background.In 2018, Dizzee said in an interview with TimeOut that he had no regrets in his decades-long career.Sometimes I think ‘f**king hell, it’s done really well’," he said.

"You couldn’t have made a game plan for everything that’s happened."In 2020, Dizzee released his seventh album, E3 AF, which peaked at number 13 on the UK albums chart.The same year, he was made an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours for his services to music.
