Dizzee Rascal - Rascal Desperate To Be Part Of Branson's Space Race
Rapper DIZZEE RASCAL hopes to use his friendship with British tycoon RICHARD BRANSON's son to land a seat on the billionaire's spaceship - even if he's not alive when it's time for lift off.
The Virgin boss is developing his own fleet of rocket planes with an eye to taking wealthy tourists into space within the next decade.
And the Bonkers hitmaker is hoping his friendship with Branson's son Sam will help him land an invite on the trek - whether he's dead or alive.
He tells Britain's Esquire magazine, "I've asked Sam to reserve my place and I meant it. When I die, I want my ashes scattered in space. I just love the possibilities of what could happen. I know it sounds a bit nerdy, but your particles could merge with something."
