The homie Dizzy Wright is our latest subject for Off Tha’ Wall. The Las Vegas native has been having quite the year, successfully pulling the covers off of many people who have been sleeping on this MCs ability. He’s been clogging up the blogs with accolades such as being announced as an inductee of XXL’s 2013 Freshman Class and the release of acclaimed music videos for his songs Still Movin and Killem Wit Kindness. In addition he’s found himself collaborating with the likes of Joey Bada$$ and a spot on the remix to the summer hit “Ain’t Worried Bout Nothin” with French Montana and a bevy of other artists. For many artists this would be enough, but Dizzy is keeping things spinning with the upcoming release of The Golden Age, slated to drop August 20th.
When we linked up with him at the 9th Annual Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival, Dizzy was in great spirits. He brought his on-stage energy to the conversation and had us laughing on and off camera. He spoke about his early music memories of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. He also put us onto his favorite part of the movie “How High,” his celebrity crush and his thoughts on his success. Dizzy also made sure to show Brooklyn some love and put us onto one of his live philosophies. Peep the footage and make sure to reserve some megabytes for The Golden Age later this month.
