“I think he’s going through some stuff, man. I wouldn’t make him the spokesperson for Hip Hop right now,” Rascal told The Daily Star.

Rascal may be from East London but the 28-year-old has spent significant time in the States. His experiences in America heavily influenced his latest studio album The Fifth released on September 30th.

The 16-track project features production by Will.i.am, RedOne, and A-Trak. The Fifth also includes the songs “A### Like That” featuring Sean Kingston and “H-Town” featuring Bun B and Trae Tha Truth.
