Dizzee Can't Cry

Rapper DIZZEE RASCAL's traumatic youth has left him devoid of emotion.

The 2003 MERCURY PRIZE winner grew up on a dangerous council estate in London and has already survived one stabbing.

And he says he has become so hardened - at the tender age of 19 - he couldn't even cry when he discovered a close friend had been stabbed to death.

Dizzee - real name DYLAN MILLS - says, "I don't think I've cried for a good two years.

"It's not nice but these are the things that some people do day-to-day. I've had friends kill friends. I just carry on doing what I do, man. I've seen all sorts in my life; my life's been full of extremes so I just roll with it.

"You never know what's gonna happen next."
