Dizzy Wright first started his career out as a youth reporter when he was really young and barely nine years-old reporting for „Just for Kids News“ and interviewing major celebrities and professional athletes. Having a strong passion for music, he quickly decided that he wanted to be a Rapper and gave up being a youth reporter to be in a group with his younger brother KJ. Singer turned actor Tyrese named the group called DaFuture at an awards show. The group recorded many songs that were never released while negotiating with several record labels. Some of those songs included features by Layzie Bone of the multi-platinum selling group Bone thugs-n-harmony, Cassidy, K-Young, Miracle as well as Michael Jackson of the R & B Group Portrait, and many others.

In 2009, Dizzy graduated from Basic High School in Henderson, Nevada. By graduating and not dropping out to pursue music, he not only set an example for his younger siblings but for other younger people who look up to him. While he had planned to attend a community college in Las Vegas and major in Psychology, that same year Dizzy’s career as a solo artist took off and began to take him to great heights. Formerly known as Dizzy D Flashy, The Jump Off Magazine named him the „Hottest Rapper in Las Vegas.“ During this time, he was promoting parties at the local teen club as a way to earn income and generate exposure for himself. He continued to receive even more exposure with his first performance at BET’s 106 & Park on Wild Out Wednesday and won the competition! Up next came the New York Blaze the Stage with an invitation to perform. Dizzy was unanimously named „Fan Favorite“ by the fans who submitted votes after his performance.

It is still unknown why New York Blaze the Stage invited Dizzy, when there was a West Coast Blaze the Stage held just four hours away from his hometown of Las Vegas in Los Angeles. Dizzy admitted that he is always grateful when invited to perform at any big event for the fans. That same year, at the Las Vegas Music Awards, Dizzy took home the „Juice Award“ and was also named the „Hip-Hip Winner“ of the Shiekh Music Rip the Mic Hip-Hip Contest Sponsored by Reebok. The Shiekh contest included winning a demo deal from Island Def Jam and a special feature in several magazines.

From 2010 to 2011, Dizzy independently released five mixtapes via the Internet and gained over two-million views of all his independent videos to support those releases. This feat of success was before Dizzy turned 21 or had a record deal or had a commercially released record. In addition to all that, Dizzy could be heard every morning is on KCEP FM Power 88.1 since he wrote and recorded the intro jingle for the morning deejay „Ballin D“.

In 2011, after doing some soul searching of his own, the young Rapper artist changed his name from Dizzy D Flashy to Dizzy Wright. The young artist admits that the change came about after he realized who he had developed into as an artist and grown into as a young man. „Wright is my birth last name and I decided to just be me from here on out, I don’t need to be flashy or any of that other stuff, just me“ Dizzy admitted.

In November 2011, Dizzy Wright signed a recording contract with the independent label, “Funk Volume” Which prompted the release of his debut single „Solo Dolo.“ It was only a short time later that his debut album „Smoke Out Conversations“ was released on 4.20.2012 and had top rankings as it hit number 2 on the top selling albums charts on iTunes.

Although Funk Volume dismantled in early 2016, after the release of several projects and headlining tours, Dizzy Wright showed no signs that he was planning on slowing down. He released “Wisdom & Good Vibes” early in the year, followed by the summer release of the “702” EP while ending the year with the collaborative project with Demrick titled „Blaze WIth Us.“ Dizzy then kicked off 2017 and started the Still Movin’ Movement and released new music every Monday for almost the entire year. Dizzy continued his independent journey by releasing 3 projects which included the “Golden Age 2”, “State of Mind 2” mixtape and “One Week Notice” which was a collaborative effort featuring several other artists. Today, he is respectively noted as being the biggest rap artist to emerge from Las Vegas and he is showing no signs of stopping his journey anytime soon. He is currently in the studio creating new music and preparing for his next release which is at this time does not have a release date.
