Critical Praise for Dizzy Wright:

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 Tour:

Dizzy Wright, who is a member of the 2013 XXL Freshmen Class and is signed to independent label Funk Volume alongside Hopsin, Jarren Benton, SwizZz, and DJ Hoppa will be covering the United States on his upcoming The Golden Age Tour. The tour is presented by both Funk Volume and HotNewHipHop, is sponsored by Gig It, and will feature New York rapper Emilio Rojas as supporting act.

As the tour approaches, Dizzy is certainly keeping busy. Fresh off a performance at the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, he is heading out on a 10-city co-headline tour across Australia with Funk Volume compadres Jarren Benton and DJ Hoppa. He is also preparing to release a new mixtape, entitled The Golden Age, on August 19th. He emphasizes that, above all, the mixtape is ”full of substance,” and stresses the importance of storytelling in its creation. “It was inspired, mainly, by the storytelling of the 90s,” he explained.

The tour will kick off on September 7th in San Diego, CA with Hopsin and will criss-cross the continental U.S. including several dates as part of Rock The Bells 2013 before concluding on November 1st in Las Vegas, NV.

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.

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.
