News: @DizzyWright Voted into XXL Freshmen Class of 2013 (@AudibleTreats)


News: Dizzy Wright Voted In By Fans To Be Member of the XXL Freshmen Class of 2013

Funk Volume's 21-year old Las Vegas-based rapper Dizzy Wright has been named the "People's Champ" winner of the 10th spot in XXL Magazine's coveted Top 10 Freshmen list. The annual list is comprised of 10 solo rappers who are chosen as the next artists to attain mainstream success and is regarded as one of the most widely discussed and debated lists issued by a music publication. Dizzy's rank as the "People's Choice" winner is especially impressive since that position is the only one that is not chosen by the editorial staff; fans overwhelmingly voted Dizzy Wright into the winning spotlight out of a list of over 50 artists.

Says Dizzy, "Being chosen for the Freshmen List means everything to me. I made a commitment to myself in 2011 to aim for it and starting in 2012, I really pushed hard for it; I released my best music, went on three tours, and released consistent visuals. My fans responded and for that, I thank them." Hard work and staying humble is one of Dizzy's strongest personality traits. Despite having an impressive fan following (88k on Twitter, 127k on Facebook,) Dizzy knows he's a new name to many and welcomes the challenge of having the rest of the industry take notice. Says Dizzy, "I've always had to prove myself. I work super hard, I'm confident in my craft, and I'm actually excited about all the muthfuckas who don't believe in me because I'm ready to gain new fans and kill it."

One of the most successful independent hip-hop labels in existence today, Funk Volume is stealthily gaining traction and has the numbers to prove it with over 160k Facebook "Likes" and over 30M YouTube views on their channel while labelmate Hopsin boasts having over 105M YouTube views and 408k YouTube subscribers. Editor-in-Chief of XXL Magazine, Vanessa Satten, remarked, "Dizzy Wright won the XXL Freshmen's People's Choice slot on the list this year with a huge amount of votes. It was great to see a new MC have fans come out and rep so hard for them. A lot of artists had big numbers based on their self-made fan bases this year but Funk Volume took the win! That's two Freshmen from that camp so far!" Funk Volume now joins the ranks of only a handful of other independent labels to have multiple Freshmen, including Top Dawg Entertainment (Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul) Fool's Gold (Donnis, Danny Brown,) Cinematic Music Group (Big K.R.I.T., Joey Bada$$) and Rostrum Records (Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller.) Funk Volume plans to release albums from Jarren Benton, Dizzy Wright, Hopsin, and SwizZz this year as well as a documentary film about the label.

Brooklyn producer and Dutty Artz co-founder Matt Shadetek enlists "Rap Game James Franco" and recent Diplo signee Riff Raff for a signature free-associative verse. "I feel like he's the Andy Kauffman of rap," Shadetek says, "Some people don't get it, and they HATE him. Most white rappers are very approval seeking, they want to be accepted by the rap mainstream and so they try to keep it real and be normal. Riff Raff is just out there not giving a fuck doing his own crazy thing. I recorded the vocals for "Bout It Girl" with a DJ Screw slowed-down feel, and thought he'd be perfect for the track."
