Rap Genius: Dizzee Rascal – ‘Brand New Day’

So I’ve recently discovered Rap Genius…

If you don’t know, Rap Genius is a website containing a fairly comprehensive anthology of hiphop lyrics. Fair enough. The good bit is that these lyrics can be parsed and annotated by readers, deciphering and decoding them to develop meaning.

I’m addicted.

This week, I’ve attacked a number of songs with my very own analyses, which, compiled, make for essays worth of reading. First up is ‘Brand New Day’ by UK rapper Dizzee Rascal, taken from his inaugural album, Boy in da Corner.

(Note: Not all of the annotations are mine – just the really interesting ones)
