Lewisham MC Yizzy drops ‘Back It’, an explosive link up with grime legend Dizzee Rascal. ‘Back It’ sees the two MCs spar over a gritty grime-meets-dubstep instrumental produced by Dizzee in a bold nod to the UK underground. With Yizzy standing shoulder to shoulder with the legendary spitter, ‘Back It’ is a powerful collision of the old school meets the new gen. The release of ‘Back It’ rounds off a stand-out year for Yizzy. ‘Back It’ follows Yizzy’s recent football-inspired single ‘Hustle Hard’ which appears on the soundtrack for FIFA20 within the new game mode VOLTA alongside tracks by Wiley, Anderson .Paak, Disclosure and his acclaimed third EP ‘Welcome To Grime Street’, sparking media attention from his music video for track ‘3 Minutes To Live’. Standing at the forefront of the next generation of grime, Yizzy has consistently shared cuts that break new ground for the grime genre. Wrapping his tight, teeth-gritting flow and memorable hooks around gold standard grime production, his live mic skills and ability have earned him co-signs from the genre’s biggest names from Ghetts, Wiley and Devlin. Dizzee Rascal is one of the UK’s most influential artists of modern times. A multi-platinum selling, multiple-award winning pioneer, he has been heralded as “the king” (The Guardian), “legendary” (The FADER), and “the voice of a generation” (Complex). As an MC, producer and prominent figure within U.K. garage and grime, Dizzee fittingly took home the award for ‘Innovation in Sound’ at this year’s Q Awards and in 2018 his genre-defining debut album, Boy in Da Corner, went platinum. ‘Back It’ stands Yizzy forefront to one of UK grime’s biggest names; a powerful statement of intent from this undeniable act to watch.
