Video: Dizzy Wright – ‘Verbalizing’

dizzy-wright-verbalizing

2012 was nothing short of a breakout year for Funk Volume rapper Dizzy Wright. First up, the The Las Vegas native released his official debut album, SmokeOut Conversations, which peaked at #2 on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart; next came a free mixtape, Free SmokeOut Conversations, with over 200,000 downloads; and, to close the year, an EP, The First Agreement, with yet another strong showing, peaking at #3 on the iTunes Hip-Hop charts. And while these numbers would have even the most accomplished of artists celebrating, Dizzy instead brought his music to fans across the world, with tours alongside his Funk Volume labelmates Hopsin, Jarren Benton, SwizZz, and DJ Hoppa that spanned three continents.

Early last month, Dizzy partnered Hot New Hip-Hop to record the song “Verbalizing,” a track that has since amassed nearly 100,000 views on the site, and today, Dizzy and Hot New Hip-Hop are bringing fans a video for the popular single. The song, over somber, keys-driven production, finds Dizzy recounting the steps he’s taken, since a teen, to get where he is today. The video, directed by Armen Soudjian for Urbanlinx Productions, complements the song well, a series of low key performance shots that allows Dizzy’s introspective lyrics to shine.
