The Song:

Las Vegas’ finest rapper Dizzy Wright returns with the 702 EP his second release of 2016. A departure from the “wisdom and good vibes” of his previous releases, the 702 EP finds Dizzy in a more reflective and personal state of mind, rhyming over metallic, trap-influenced production from the likes of Alex Lusting, LarryMakingAllTheHits, FreezeOnTheBeat and Louie Haze. Featuring guest appearances by fellow Vegas natives Reezy and Easy Redd and Omaha’s Skate Maloley, the 702 EP is the ideal soundtrack for hot, neon-lit summer nights. “It’s summer time,” explains Dizzy Wright, “and people want to smile and have fun and I want them to be able to listen to me in clubs, basketballs games, any and every kind of event. I just wanted to make sure I made a tape that my fans could just throw in and let play from start to finish.

Earlier this week, Dizzy Wright released “Why You Do Me Like That?, a Skate Maloley-featuring track about the intricacies of the music industry and the fickleness of personal relationships. In recent weeks, Dizzy Wright shared the more lighthearted song and visual for What’s In My Pot? and the video for “East Side,” in which Dizzy tours Las Vegas’ East Side on his bike and parties in his home. “Why You Do Me Like That,” “East Side,” and “What’s In My Pot?” are available as gratis downloads when pre-ordering the whole EP. The EP is also available for pre-order on physical form at Dizzy Wright’s official site. On July 1st, Dizzy Wright will host an album release party in Las Vegas at the streetwear store Institution starting at… (wait for it…) 7:02pm.

The nephew of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony‘s Layzie Bone, Dizzy Wright began rapping at just 8 years old. Dizzy Wright released SmokeOut Conversations in April 2012, peaking at #2 on the iTunes Hip-Hop charts. He followed it up with a free mixtape, Free SmokeOut Conversations, which propelled Dizzy Wright to his own national 30-city tour. As the “People’s Choice” member of the XXL Freshman Class of 2013, Dizzy Wright also released his The Golden Age mixtape followed by multiple projects which received wide acclaim, including 2015’s The Growing Process which landed him HotNewHipHop‘s digital cover story. Earlier in 2016, Dizzy Wright released the Wisdom and Good Vibes EP, featuring singles such as “Work a Lil Harder”and “Plotting.” This year, Dizzy also opened for Logic on his sold out The Incredible World Tour.

Dizzy Wright Background:

Las Vegas, Nevada, Rapper Dizzy Wright began rapping at just 8 years old in the group “DaFuture” with his brother and very close friend; his mother wrote his raps at the time. Dizzy broke through when he was discovered at the Sheikh Music “Rip the Mic” competition in 2010 and signed onto Funk Volume a few months later. In April 2012, Dizzy released his first Funk Volume album, SmokeOut Conversations, peaking at #2 on the iTunes Hip-Hop charts which he followed up with a free mixtape, Free SmokeOut Conversations, which has been downloaded over 200,000 times, and helped propel Dizzy to his own national 30-city tour. In December 2012, Dizzy went on to release the first of four EPs, The First Agreement, which reached as high as #2 on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart. In March of 2013, Dizzy gathered enough votes to be selected as the “People’s Choice” member of the XXL Freshman Class of 2013. Also in 2013, Dizzy released The Golden Age mixtape and followed it up with The Golden Age Tour. In 2014, Dizzy released the State of Mind EP and toured the US  with support from Scion AV. Following the momentum, in 2015 he hit the road in support of his sophomore album The Growing Process, which peaked at #3 on iTunes. When 2016 hit, Funk Volume disbanded. No signs of slowing down, Dizzy dropped his Wisdom and Good Vibes EP and opened for Logic’s sold out The Incredible World Tour, while prepping his second release this year, the 702 EP.
