Let me know what you think?
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Unless, it’s Dizzy Wright. Dizzy D Flashy, as he was previously known, has been in the game since the age of 10. Dizzy caught his 1st big break in 2010 when he appeared on 106 & Park’s “Wild Out Wednesday.” Today, Vegas’ brightest star has broken his city’s popular slogan as he’s now a nationwide artist backed by Funk Volume.
With his biggest release to date nearing its 4/20 release, we decided to catch up with Dizzy Wright. Together we talked about hip-hop & violence, SmokeOut Conversations, his mom writing his raps, and linking up with Funk Volume. Full interview after the jump.
A couple of weeks ago we had the tremendous opportunity of talking to the talented Hospin. Hop’ has been fu[n]king stuff up in the industry for a while now, so it was about time we caught up with him for an interview.
During our Q&A, Hopsin speaks on the Funk Volume crew, staying independent, Odd Future, Tech N9ne, Knock Madness, not using drugs or alcohol, and a lot more. Full interview below.
Crews, crews, crews. Ever since Young Money burst into the scene back in 2009 with We Are Young Money, rap groups have been popping up everywhere. For a good reason too. Marketing a group is much easier. For one, you kill three birds with one stone. When you market the group, you individually market each member at the same time as well. Artists develop their images while in the group, then when they’re ready, they step out into the scene a complete artist. Marketability is everything. “Brainwashing” (a.k.a. convincing people that you’re awesome) people is much easier when you have a group, because anyone can be part of the group, including fans! You can’t be Wiz Khalifa, but you can be Taylor Gang. You see? Money! 3 birds, 1 stone. I’m not surprised album sales went up in 2011. Groups can easily cultivate “cult” followings, “cult” followers buy albums. It’s a genius scheme all around. Being a record executive and seeing this is definitely fun, but being an observer isn’t that boring either. Crews will keep dominating the industry in 2012. Well, at least some crews.
