Dizzee Rascal - Dizzee Rascal Takes Up Thai Boxing

Dizzee Rascal has taken up Thai boxing.

The 'Bonkers' rapper - who is facing a lifetime ban from British Airways after recently being thrown off a flight for allegedly abusing an air stewardess - practices the martial art to de-stress.

He told BANG Showbiz: "I've been spending my time doing Thai boxing in Kent - it's great. I do it because I like beating people up."

The 25-year-old hip-hop star - whose last album, 'Tongue N' Cheek', was released in 2009 - has also turned his hand to photography as he takes time out from his music career.

Speaking at the 'Bing Your Britain' photography competition hosted at Blackhall Studios in London's Shoreditch on Tuesday night (12.07.11) - where he had some of his own work on display - he added: "Photography is something that's always interested me, it's great to have been involved in this. I just went back to my roots to take some pictures."

Dizzee - real name is Dylan Mills - was recently thrown off a British Airways plane bound for Portugal, resulting in him missing a gig at the Optimus Alive! festival in the European country, after he was reportedly abusive towards a steward.
