Dizzee Rascal is probably one of the UK’s most marketable rappers and it seems Kellogg’s thinks so too because Dizzee has revealed on Twitter that he’s been asked to voice the cartoon monkey, who is the mascot for the cereal.
REAL TALK! I've just been asked to do the voice over for the coco pops monkey! I always wanted to be the Mil http://t.co/uB5RbB16

He also posted the picture above on Instagram with the monkey to show the two’s, erm, similarities.
To be fair though, we think Dizzee might be a better fit for the Dairy Milk gorilla, what with him being a big guy and a musician and stuff. Uh-huh.
Dizzee took some offence to the Kellogg’s offer though, hashtagging the tweet with #Thisracismiskillingmeinside.
I’m sure it was totally innocent Dizzee!
