Last month, Dizzy Wright was named to XXL Magazine’s 2013 Freshmen Class, being announced as the “People’s Champ” fan-vote winner. Today, the celebration continues with the release of Dizzy’s “XXL Freshman Freestyle.” The acapella clip shows just what makes Dizzy so special as a rapper, as he mixes complex lyricism with a delicate balance of insight, introspection, and boastfulness.
To win the fan-vote for the XXL Freshmen cover, amongst all that talent, is no small feat, and it’s a testament to Dizzy’s work ethic, to the months and months that he’s spent on the road touring around the world over the past year, that he has such a rabid, loyal following. And so it’s no surprise that Dizzy is back on the road again this spring, having recently kicked off a 25-city nationwide tour, The Fight To Unite Tour, alongside Kottonmouth Kings, Snow Tha Product, and more. In addition to the tour, Dizzy Wright will play two shows next month in New York City, the first on May 21st, at Best Buy Theater to celebrate the XXL Freshmen cover, and the second, on May 22nd, at The Studio at Webster Hall. Dizzy will also perform at this year’s SoundSet festival, alongside Atmosphere, Snoop Dogg, Mac Miller, Tech N9ne, and more.
