British rapper Dizzee Rascal has defended his foul-mouthed rant against the Bbc after accusing bosses of favouring American artists.

The Bonkers hitmaker took to Twitter.com on Tuesday (05Nov13) to slam executives at Radio 1, suggesting singles from his latest album The Fifth had not been added to the station's playlist and accusing radio bosses of shunning British talent.

A spokesman for the station later hit back, stating that three tracks from Dizzee Rascal's current album had actually been playlisted, but the rapper has refused to put an end to the feud, insisting he has not received any support from the flagship station.

In a series of posts on Twitter, he writes, "When a station dictates your singles, gets you to do their events for free then don't support you're supposed to say something... Rinsing out some s**t from 5 years ago that they didn't jump on till (sic) it went number 1 don't count. It's been a 10 year battle (it is) still ongoing."

The star previously turned on several fans after they disagreed with his argument, but the rapper has since apologised, writing, "Just wanna (sic) apologise to my fans for my bad language the other day. Everyone else can still s**k my d**k!"
