Cage said that the label exists to promote gifted artists with social problems that could scare off other labels. It also helps artists overcome hurdles like access to studios that take something from a raw demo to something people would get excited about on the street.


Further details on Dizzee Rascal’s trial

Dizzee Rascal was found guilty of attacking Cassandra Jones after a trial in March 2022, where a judge concluded that he had been abusive and aggressive.

During the trial, Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court heard that Mills pressed his forehead against Cassandra and pushed her to the ground. The duo argued over custody arrangements when Dizzee dropped his daughter at the Streatham property.

Dylan was said to have barged into the home and banged his head three times in the fridge while holding his son and started screaming and shouting at Jones and her mother Dawn Kirk.

Jones began filming him, but Mills took away her phone and Kirk’s phone. The chaos became so loud that it alerted two neighbors and the cops were called. Mills told the officers that he was the aggressor when they arrived but later denied the allegations while giving a prepared statement in a police interview.

After being found guilty, Dizzee Rascal proceeded to smash a photographer’s camera outside the court after knocking it out of their hands and throwing it across the road.
