Dizzy Wright has released the cover art for his forthcoming The Golden Age mixtape and has announced August 19 as the release date for the project. The Las Vegas rapper told hotnewhiphop.com that his Funk Volume labelmates and Wyclef Jean are among the guests featured on the project.
The Funk Volume artist says that the collection features storytelling and that the material is full of substance. “It was inspired, mainly, by the storytelling of the ’90s,” Dizzy Wright told the site. Producers are slated to include DJ Hoppa, Rikio, 3rd Eye and 6IX, according to the story.
Dizzy Wright also appears in the forthcoming Funk Volume documentary Independent Living: The Funk Volume Documentary. Filmed during the imprint’s Funk Volume 2012 Tour, which featured 44 performances in 50 days, the documentary showcases the work ethic Funk Volume artists display as they play to sold-out crowds throughout the country.
In the documentary, Dizzy Wright reflects on the responsibilities he feels while on tour. “I’m a daddy, so when I’m on the road, it’s like this is my job,” the 2013 XXL Freshman says in the trailer. “This is my dream.”
