Dizzee Rascal's top 5 movie soundtracks

Dizzee-Rascal.jpg

Ten years ago, we thought 'grime' was a description for that growth under the sink in the downstairs bathroom. But that was before an urban upstart from Bow launched his debut album Boy in Da Corner.

A decade on, having collected a string of awards (including a Mercury Music Prize for the aforementioned album) and performed at the opening ceremony of his home town's Olympic games, Dizzee has returned with his appropriately titled fifth studio album, The Fifth.

The tiresome pursuit of chart domination requires occasional respite, and in a brief moment of grime-free downtime we were able to put some soul searching questions to Dizzee: what he'd had for breakfast (toast) and his five favourite movie soundtracks. Because that's what you've always wanted to know about him, right?
