David Knight - 23rd Oct 2017

Dizzee Rascal is a geezer not to be messed with in Romain Chassaing's video for Bop N Keep It Dippin. So when a young accountant rips off Dizzee's vicious yet somewhat careless gangster, it sets off an epic chase, involving eye-watering identity changes and blood-curdling violence as the accountant is hunted all over the world by Dizzee's goons.

Chassaing, who's up for a couple of MVAs this week for his latest magnum opus for Naive New Beaters, applies the comedy-drama aesthetic that works so well with NNB, and ramps up body count big-time. As a result, this is an absolute corker. Including confirmation, if any were needed, that Dizzee can play scary.
