Dizzee Rascal has confessed he has done some "idiot things" which he will reveal in his shocking new autobiography.

The 24-year-old Mercury Music Prize nominated grime artist thinks his book is "going to surprise a lot of people" when it comes out.

Dizzee said: "I think it's going to shock a lot of people but for the most part I hope it inspires people and makes people laugh. I'm basically talking about my journey through the music industry, growing up, the things I went through, the things I've seen and some of the idiot things I have done.

"There's the good stuff I've done as well - it's really wide and really varied. It's exciting and it will make a good movie one day as well hopefully."

The Tongue N' Cheek rapper - who is headlining this year's 10th anniversary Global Gathering festival -also revealed how his new track, I'm So Heavy, with Chase and Status is his most "outrageous" in a long time.

He said: "It's probably the most outrageous, banging, relentless track I've done in a long time - it's going off on one. It's just so banging - it's devastating. Chase and Status - they're beast - they are quite incomparable as far as how heavy they are with the whole dubstep thing."

::Global Gathering is taking place in Stratford Upon Avon from July 30th - 31st. For more information and tickets, visit www.globalgathering.com
