La’Reonte Wright (born November 26, 1990) is an American rapper better known by his stage name Dizzy Wright. He is best known for being signed to Hopsin‘s record label Funk Volume. He released his debut studio album Smokeout Conversations in 2012.
Dizzy Wright was born in Flint, Michigan and grew up with his favorite rappers being Nas and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, which his “uncle” Layzie Bone is a member of. At the age of four he moved with his mom and siblings to Las Vegas, Nevada. He began rapping at just 8 years old with the group DaFuture which included his brother and a very close friend. His mother wrote his raps at the time and was a concert promoter so he was exposed to the music industry early even doing youth reporting at major awards shows like the BET Awards and interviewing Tyreese, St. Lunatics and Boyz II Men. He credits this for being the reason he wants to stay away from major record labels and stick to independent labels. In seventh grade Dizzy Wright lived in a homeless shelter with his family for five months. Throughout the rest of high school Dizzy Wright lived in Georgia and California before moving back to Las Vegas when he was in twelfth grade. Dizzy Wright took part and won the Sheikh Music “Rip the Mic” Competition in 2010 which impressed record label Funk Volume. He appeared on 106 & Park’s Wild Out Wednesday as “Dizzy D Flashy“ in 2010.
Dizzy Wright released his prior mixtape Soul Searchin (The Next Level) before signing to Funk Volume under Bluestar Records. In November 2011 Dizzy Wright was signed to rapper Hopsin‘s record label Funk Volume after they were impressed by his smooth flow, confident stage presence and energy that won over the crowd. His debut album Smokeout Conversations was released on April 20, 2012 in honor of the annual marijuana ”holiday” under Funk Volume. The album features SwizZz and the single “Can’t Trust Em“. The album peaked at #42 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and at #8 on the Heatseekers Albums chart. Following that, two months later was the mixtape Free SmokeOut Conversations which has been downloaded over 200,000 times. The mixtape featured Hopsin and SwizZz and the single “Independent Living“. The original plan was to release the mixtape prior to the album but Dizzy Wright put the album out first. The album’s success allowed him to perform on a national 30 day headlining tour following its release.
The most anticipated song on Free SmokeOut Conversations is the collaboration with labelmates Hopsin and SwizZz called “Independent Living“. The track talks about the independent route versus signing a major label deal, and their preference for the former. The mixtape also includes the “Can’t Trust’em Remix” featuring Jarren Benton and Angel Haze, and “Nobody’s Teaching Game” featuring fellow Las Vegas artist, Capo Young.
It’s a perfect balance. Dizzy Wright manages to keep the mixtape within his grasp, balancing the hard, street anthems and the chill-out vibe that he’s known for. Free SmokeOut Conversations never comprises the conscious-laden tracks for the ‘anti-industry’ banger, all the while keeping lyricism the main priority. It’s the kind of release one expects from Funk Volume. A unquenchable hunger and pro-lyrical spirit dashed with the anti major-label sentiment is what grabs listeners and forces them to hop on the Funk Volume ”train”.
