Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York began its fourth year on Friday, April 29 and a week later (Friday, May 6), the program featured a live performance by London’s Dizzee Rascal. Dizzee celebrated the 13th anniversary of the release of his debut album, Boy In Da Corner by performing it in its entirety for the first time ever at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY. His set began with him literally sitting in a corner, recreating the album’s artwork for the opening song, “Sitting Here.” If you missed the sold out show on Friday evening, we have images from his set courtesy of photographer Edwina Hay.
