Signing With Funk Volume
Dizzy Wright:"It was really weird. After [a failed deal with independent label Bluestar] I was really salty. That was supposed to be some independent shit but it turned out to be some weird ass shit. That let me know that you have to pay attention, because that shit could have turned out bad for me.
Every artist can be a good artist, but a platform makes you really who you are.
"So when I met Dame [Ritter], I was hesitant. But Hopsin was on the rise, and his numbers were way better than my numbers, so they obviously had to have been doing something right. From that, I was all ears. We're still growing with each other. SwizZz and Hopsin are from California, Jarren Benton's from Atlanta, I'm from Vegas. We're still putting pieces to the puzzle.
"They bring a platform. Every artist can be a good artist, but a platform makes you really who you are. Kendrick Lamar being under Dr. Dre, or Dre and Snoop Dogg, coming out and saying, 'This is the leader of the West Coast,' niggas was hot off that shit.
"When you have that kind of platform, those are the kinds of things that are going to happen. So Funk Volume created this platform for me to just be an artist. If I make music, they can get it to the blogs. If the blogs are feeling you, then they'll fuck with you. So it's on you to make it what it is, but the platform helps too."
