Dizzee took it back to 2003.
Dizzee Rascal performed his Mercury Award-winning album ‘Boy In Da Corner album’ in it’s entirety last night.
Playing at London's Copper Box Arena, the legendary rapper performed to a sold-out crowd of 7,500 eager fans.
The special one-off show commemorated Dizzee’s 13-year-old record, with Red Bull Music Academy helping to bring the show to the rapper’s London home turf.
Dizzee performed the entire album from start to finish, sitting inside a giant neon cube reminiscent of the 2003 album's artwork.
A whole host of VIP guests coming to watch the man in action, with attendees including including FKA Twigs, Skepta, D Double E, Katy B and Lily Allen.
Fans and fellow artists alike took to Twitter to praise the artist, with video recordings showing just how explosive the night was.
Boy In Da Corner is a landmark moment for social commentary and culture. I'm glad the country got to celebrate that and thank @DizzeeRascal.— Logan Sama (@djlogansama) October 23, 2016
The grime artist was clearly appreciative of the support thrown his way, tweeting this after the show:
Massive shout to everyone who came to the Show tonight! Get home safe.— Dizzee Rascal (@DizzeeRascal) October 22, 2016
