Critical Praise for Dizzy Wright:

Selected by fans to XXL’s Freshmen Class of 2013 “Amazing.” –  MTV News “Dizzy Wright is captivating the moment you hear himComplex

The Video:

Kegs, plastic red cups, weed smoke, dancing, beer pong. In his latest visual, “Reunite for the Night,” Las Vegas rapper Dizzy Wright returns home where he brings friends and family together for a house party. Presented by Funk Volume and L-R-G, the rapper’s stoner charm is in full effect, smiling from ear-to-ear assuring “this about to be a party” atop record scratches from DJ Hoppa while the party people dance and laugh together. “What it do, it’s good to see you/Glad you in town, I ain’t seen you in a while/You be holding shit down, keep making the city proud,” he raps on the song’s chorus while giving daps and handshakes to the folks he “ain’t seen in a while.” “Momma let us rent out the crib, tryna reunite for the night,” Dizzy raps, beginning the song’s first verse and setting the tone for the celebratory video.

Produced by Roc N Mayne, Dizzy reflects on his progression, saying “it’s 20-14 where your mind at, where we used to be we ‘posed to be beyond that.” Scenes change throughout the video, while director Matt Alonzo adds a home video recording device filter that further establishes the house party experience for viewers. “Reunite for the Night” is the latest single from Dizzy’s recently released State of Mind EP, which XXL calls, “a quality offering from an MC that has tasted success and wants more.” Adding on to the critical praise, HotNewHipHop says that “much of the EP has a smoothed out feel, a signature sound from the stoner, but he did provide songs that could move a crowd, perhaps even more than usual.” 

In support of the EP’s release, Dizzy just began a 19-city State of Mind tour, which is sponsored by Scion AV.

Dizzy Wright Background:

Not many 23-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. Also in 2013, Dizzy released The Golden Age mixtape and followed it up with The Golden Age Tour. Dizzy recently released State of Mind EP and is currently touring the US  with support from Scion AV.

Founded in 2008 by internationally recognized rap artist Hopsin and Stanford MBA grad Damien “Dame” Ritter, the label was created with one thing in mind: protecting the integrity of the artist’s vision. Currently home to rappers Hopsin, SwizZz, Dizzy Wright, and Jarren Benton and more recently, DJ’s and producers Hoppa, Kato, and Rikia, the label has quickly transformed into being a label to watch by fans and industry insiders alike. Funk Volume recently released their first documentary, Independent Living, which captures the artists’ swift rise during their 44-date national tour in 2012.
