Dizzy Wright Reflects on the Trappings of Success on “Why You Do Me Like That”
Over shimmering synths and thunderous 808s, Dizzy Wright appears more confident than ever on “Why You Do Me Like That,” the latest single from his 702 EP. One of the most distinguished rappers to come out of Las Vegas, the Sin City rapper stresses his loyalty to those around him, addressing the “zoo” of the music industry and people who have turned their back on him. With an almost effortless flow, Dizzy raps, “The whole world can’t be trusted / Since FV gone I’m adjusted.” Dizzy is joined by Omaha, Nebraska rapper Skate Maloley on the Alex Lustig-produced track. Dizzy explains, “I made “Why You Do Me Like That” for the fans, just to remind them that we see everything, we’re aware that people will pick you up to tear you down when you get bigger then they expected. So we’re here to go against all odds and play with the fans and pretty much make a army out of them. That’s why I made it.”
Attesting to Dizzy’s tireless work ethic, the 702 EP is Dizzy’s second EP of 2016 and demonstrates an equally pensive but more forbidding tone than Dizzy’s previous releases. The follow up to his “Wisdom and Good Vibes EP,” the 702 EP features production from the likes of Alex Lustig, LarryMakingAllTheHits, FreezeOnTheBeat and Louie Haze. Dizzy iterates that timing was key to this release, saying “It’s summer time and people want to smile and have fun and I want them to be able to listen to me in clubs, basketballs games, any and every kind of event. I just wanted to make sure I made a tape that my fans could just throw in and let play from start to finish.” This track follows last week’s release of the visual for the more lighthearted track “What’s In My Pot?” Previously, Dizzy Wright released the video for “East Side,” in which Dizzy tours Las Vegas’ East Side on his bike and parties in his home. “Why You Do Me Like That, “East Side,” and “What’s In My Pot?” are available as gratis downloads when pre-ordering the whole EP. The EP is also available for pre-order on physical form at Dizzy Wright’s official site. On July 1st, Dizzy Wright will host an album release party in Las Vegas at the streetwear store Institution starting at… (wait for it…) 7:02pm.
The nephew of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony’s Layzie Bone, Dizzy Wright began rapping at just 8 years old. Dizzy Wright released SmokeOut Conversations in April 2012, peaking at #2 on the iTunes Hip-Hop charts. He followed it up with a free mixtape, Free SmokeOut Conversations, which propelled Dizzy Wright to his own national 30-city tour. As the “People’s Choice” member of the XXL Freshman Class of 2013, Dizzy Wright also released his The Golden Age mixtape followed by multiple projects which received wide acclaim, including 2015’s The Growing Process which landed him HotNewHipHop’s digital cover story. Earlier in 2016, Dizzy Wright released the Wisdom and Good Vibes EP, featuring singles such as “Work a Lil Harder” and “Plotting.” This year, Dizzy also opened for Logic on his sold out The Incredible World Tour.
