About Dizzy Wright
Dizzy Wright’s stoner-friendly raps made him a candidate for breakout success in the early 2010s, but he detoured from the mainstream to cater to his niche fanbase as an independent artist.
• Born in Flint, Michigan, Wright moved to Las Vegas when he was four. He started rapping when he was eight—his mom wrote his rhymes.
• Layzie Bone of the seminal Ohio rap group Bone Thugs-n-Harmony is Dizzy’s uncle. He played a mentor-type role in Dizzy’s childhood.
• Instead of going with a major label, Wright signed with rapper Hopsin’s independent Funk Volume imprint in 2012 and released his debut album, SmokeOut Conversations, that same year.
• In 2013, he made XXL’s Freshman Class list, alongside Chief Keef, Action Bronson, Ab-Soul, and others.
• He continued his evolution with 2015’s The Growing Process, which featured Big K.R.I.T., Tech N9ne, Krayzie Bone, and Layzie Bone. The album made the Top 5 of Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
• In 2020, Wright teamed up with frequent collaborator Demrick for the Blaze With Us 2 sequel. Months later, he returned with the solo project My Hustle Unmatched.
