Exclusive in-depth interview with Dizzy Wright. In part 1 Dizzy talks to Nick Huff Barili about being inspired to rhyme by Krayzie Bone and Bone Thugs N Harmony. Dizzy recalls that at first his Mother, who worked in the music industry, would write his raps but at one point he felt that it didn’t fully represent him so he started writing his own rhymes. Dizzy goes on to share the time him, his Mother and his four brothers and sisters lived in a homeless shelter when he was in 7th grade. Like Asap Rocky whom Nick also interviewed about living in a homeless shelter, Dizzy says that the experience gave him a perspective which he still carries today about being grateful for what he has. “I don’t really want for anything. I don’t expect anything. When you don’t have nothing, anything is cool. Like I said in one of my songs “We was strong when we was weak, thats why I pray before I eat.” As the interview progresses Dizzy talks about how the book The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ángel Ruiz help inspired Dizzy’s EP The First Agreement. Dizzy calls the book “Life Bars” and says it helps create “Heaven on Earth”. Part 1 end with Dizzy addressing people comparing him to Wiz Khalifa. Dizzy says “Wiz is the new Snoop Dogg….So anybody who comes up with tattoos and smokes weed is going to have to go through thats just another want to be Wiz Khalifa until he creates something for himself.
In part 2 Dizzy tell Nick Huff Barili that “In the beginning I felt like nobody was listening to my Hip Hop shit…I was putting everything on Myspace and it just wasn’t getting the feedback that I wanted it to get.” Dizzy says that people were asking him to “make that Turnt Up Shit” but when he went on the road he realized “that stuff only goes so far.” After spiting a verse from one of his new tracks “World Peace” Dizzy explains why he chose to call his new mixtape The Golden Age. “To make a great album you have to know what a great album sounds like…So I just kind of studied my greats…[Now] it got to the cornier side of Hip Hop…I just didn’t want to be a part of that.” After breaking down which greats he has studied Dizzy goes on to explain the inspiration for his album cover. Before part 2 ends Dizzy says that he feels how Kendrick Lamar feels on his verse for Big Sean’s “Control” track. “Im coming for everybody’s spot even Kendrick’s spot but the music is supposed to do the most talking. Not the verse that you throw on the same beat he threw his verse on…not the response or the diss…[but] the actual music. You as an artists have to step it up…The Kendricks, The J Coles, The Hopsins, The Kanyes have already made me want to step my game up.” On the part where Kendrick is talking about New York Dizzy states “He is definitely quoting Kurupt…all these New York rappers thats arguing with each other and doing their verses and upset about it are going to be salty about it when they realize he didn’t mean it like that.”
