The 'Bonkers' rapper says he's looking forward to tonight's Opening Ceremony in East London.
Dizzee Rascal has said he feels excited about the start of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The much-anticipated sporting event is due to kick off tonight (27th July) with the Opening Ceremony at the Olympic Stadium in Stratford.
The Coca-Cola ambassador was among the performers at the Olympic Torch Relay Finale presented by Coca-Cola in London last night (26th July).
And speaking to Capital FM at the event, the East Londoner said he could not wait for the Games to begin.
"Definitely, man. This whole experience has been crazy," he said.
"Running with the Torch and being with the Future Flames. Writing the song for the Olympics – 'Scream' featuring Pepper – it's all mad. It's crazy."
Dizzee headlined last night's concert alongside performances from The Wanted, Rizzle Kicks, Wretch 32 and Mark Ronson and Katy B.
