The Video:

Funk Volume rapper Dizzy Wright continues his prolific string of video releases from his latest mixtape The Golden Age, this time teaming up with hip-hop legend Wyclef in the visual for the track “We Turned Out Alright,” directed by John Colombo.  The song, which Dizzy described with two simple words, “the truth,” explores the loss of friends and comrades in the struggle. Amidst the current hip-hop scene which tends to focus on money, sex and drugs, Dizzy has earned a reputation as a more socially conscious lyricist, and this song continues to demonstrate his commitment to create music he sees as substantive. Wyclef’s presence on the track only further solidifies the mixtape’s intentional references to “a golden age” of 1990s hip-hop, and the hook recalls his own iconic work from that era.

In addition to dropping an impressive number of videos from the mixtape, Dizzy is currently touring with Funk Volume labelmate DJ Hoppa and opening act Emilio Rojas on The Golden Age Tour, presented by HotNewHipHop and GigIt. Futuristic and Marcus Moody will also perform on select dates.

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 recently released The Golden Age mixtape, and is currently on The Golden Age Tour. 

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.
