EDITORS’ NOTES

If Boy in da Corner showed grime could be a cohesive, critically acclaimed proposition and Tongue N’ Cheek proved it could conquer the charts, The Fifth forms a bridge between these worlds. Yes, there are plenty of glistening dance-floor killers (the Jessie J-backed “We Don’t Play Around”). But Dizzee still finds room for block-rattling street jams (“H-Town”) and proves that, 10 years in, he’s still an innovator at heart.
