Selected as one of XXL’s Freshmen Class of 2013

“Amazing.”-  MTV News

“Guess it’s fair to say we’ve been sleeping on Dizzy Wright.” – Complex

The Song:

As he prepares for the release of his new mixtape, The Golden Age, dropping on Monday, August 19th exclusively via HotNewHipHopFunk Volume rapper Dizzy Wright has leaked a new track entitled “World Peace.” Produced by Rikio, the mid-tempo, laid back track features a head-bopping drum beat, chill electric guitar riffs, and speaks to one of the overall philosophies Dizzy intends to communicate with his latest work. “I’ve always had [a peaceful] mentality in my heart,” says Dizzy, “But when you can travel the world and spread that energy it becomes real.”

Although he has been moving around and adapting to new environments since childhood, Dizzy’s recent experience touring through Australia gave him even more insight into his place on an international stage, as well as his desire to spread positivity. “It gave me a better perspective on people,” he says, “There’s so many normal dudes out there who just listen to music. They’ll scrape up their last dollar to come and see you rock out. It makes me take my job seriously. It makes me want to be better.” His outgoing, friendly and social demeanor has also afforded Dizzy the opportunity to meet many people during his travels who have helped influence his state of mind. “I talk to a lot of people…come smoke with me and talk to me!” he says with a laugh, “People say some real ass shit to me that just sticks with me sometimes. The good vibes I put out into the world, I get back.”

Dizzy will begin The Golden Age Tour on September 7th in San Diego, CA. The tour will also feature New York rapper Emilio Rojas, and is presented by Funk Volume and HotNewHipHop and sponsored by Gig It.

Dizzy Wright Background:

Not many 21-year old rappers can say that they’ve been rapping for over a decade. 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. He followed it 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. Dizzy is showing no signs of slowing down, preparing a new mixtape The Golden Agewhich will be released on August 19th, as well as The Golden Age Tour, which will kick off September 7th in San Diego, California.

Funk Volume Background:

Funk Volume is a record label, marketing and production company founded to give hip hop artists a home to freely express themselves without feeling controlled or pressured by any other outside forces. Currently home to Hopsin, SwizZz, Dizzy Wright, Jarren Benton and DJ Hoppa, Funk Volume’s plan is to represent only the sickest, most talented, and most creative artists that we can find. The label’s objective is to produce music that it feel competes with any other artists or labels in the industry. Funk Volume is not a “movement”, not a “gang”, not a “squad.” Funk Volume is a commitment – to protect the integrity of the music and conduct our business properly. It is a commitment to hip-hop, to its fans, and to each other.
