Since signing to Funk Volume in 2011, Dizzy Wright has been all about progress. His debut album, SmokeOut Conversations, and EP, The First Agreement, both charted on iTunes and Billboard; he went on three tours last year, including his own 30-date headline tour, that brought him all across the world; and just earlier this week, Dizzy was announced as the People’s Champ vote winner and part of XXL Magazine’s 2013 Freshmen Class. So it comes as no surprise that Dizzy and Funk Volume are unveiling a new video today for a campaign they’re calling “Sill Movin’,” which urges fans and supporters of Dizzy and the label to pursue the same kind of progress, no matter what field, that Dizzy has been focused on for the past two years.

“Don’t you get it? We still moving/ Independent living, and we still moving,” raps Dizzy in the video, surrounded by his Funk Volume label mates, as he details the hard work and drive that has taken him from being an aspiring local rapper in his hometown of Las Vegas to now, a burgeoning breakout rap star. To accompany the song and video, Dizzy and Funk Volume are also releasing a line of Still Movin’ t-shirts, hoodies, and hats, available for purchase via the Funk Volume merch store, a way for the rapper and label to continue to connect and give some motivation back to the fans and supporters that have given them so much over the years. “It’s always been about the fans,” says Dizzy, recalling how he would give away a new song or video every time he reached new milestones on social media. “This is my way of giving back.”

Still Movin’ is the crystallization of this commitment. “Don’t slow down for nobody. Don’t let anyone stop you from what you’re doing,” exclaims Dizzy, breaking down the rhetoric that serves as a key attribute of the Still Movin’ mindset, one that resonates throughout the Funk Volume label, which pushed and connected with fans similarly through last year’s “Independent Living” campaign. “You can do whatever you do – smoke, drink, party – so long as you bring that positive energy,” says Dizzy. “This year, it’s Still Movin’.”
