Dizzee Rascal reckons the Barclaycard Mercury Prize should be renamed in his honour.

The London rapper has been nominated for the second time for Tongue N' Cheek, after winning the prestigious gong in 2003 with his debut album Boy In Da Corner.

He told the Daily Star: "The Dizzee Award, that's what they should call it, why not? I'm going to win it this time - I feel like it's my time again."

Dizzee continued: "It would be nice for this album to get it. It's my first independent release on Dirtee Stank and my first platinum album.

"It's a lot more upbeat and singable. It's a happier record. I love playing it live."
