Is Dizzee Rascal gearing up to release a new album? That’s what the internet is speculating after he revealed a mysterious set of numbers on Twitter and shared a link to raskit.co.uk, calling fans to head over to the site at 2 pm.  Reports of impending new material from the grime pioneer emerged last week, stoked by a guerilla poster campaign appearing around Bow, East London.

Also, a rumored diss track aimed at Wiley dominated headlines following the grime icon calling out Dizzee after hearing that he’d “sent for him” on his new album – and threatened to retaliate with a “10 minute dub”.

Some of those posters featured the numbers “727548,” which he also shared on Twitter and, as GRM Daily reports, spells out “Raskit” using a Nokia 3310 with predictive text on. It’s been four years since Dizzee released his fifth studio album The Fifth in 2013. And while many have said that he has put his Grime days behind him, there is speculation that Dizzee’s new LP will be 100% grime.

Raskit.co.uk currently links to a YouTube livestream, which is expected to begin at 2pm (June 15). Will it be an album announcement? Live performance? Or a response to Wiley’s earlier tweets? I guess we will have to tune in at 2 pm to find out.
