The 'Bonkers' rapper makes his own statement about the riots two years ago in his positive new video.

Dizzee Rascal has unveiled the music video for his latest single 'Love This Town'.

The 'I Don't Need A Reason' rapper launched the video this week, which heavily references the London riots from 2011 with Dizzee's own comment about moving forward.

Dizzee starts the video alongside a group of friends who are seemingly intimidating the locals in an unknown London suburb, before he flips viewers' expectations by showing them performing good deeds across the city.

The rapper and his friends are seen washing the windows of local shops, helping old ladies with their shopping and rescuing lost cats in the uplifting music video.

The video for 'Love This Town' also references infamous video of a teenager in the midst of the riots getting his laptop taken from his bag by law-breakers, but in Dizzee's version the group instead fill up the man's bag with sandwiches and treats.

Dizzee Rascal has already released two previous singles from his album 'The Fifth', both 'I Don't Need A Reason' and his Robbie Williams team-up 'Goin' Crazy'.
