The 'Bonkers' rapper names Kanye's album 'Graduation' as a huge inspiration on his own music.
Dizzee Rascal has named Kanye West as the artist he would most like to record a collaboration with.
The 'Goin' Crazy' rapper also hailed the US rapper's new album 'Yeezus' and credits Kanye's 2007 record 'Graduation' with being a big inspiration to him.
"But there are still loads of people I want to collaborate with," Dizzee told The Sun this week. "More than anyone I'd like to work with Kanye West, he's always been ahead of everyone.
"People are in two minds about his new album 'Yeezus' but what more can he do?" Dizzee questioned. "I have got to admit 'Graduation' was a massive inspiration to me. I felt that was his best."
