At 17-years old with several years of experience Dizzy decided to take his rap career seriously. Formerly known as Dizzy D Flashy, Dizzy was a winner on BET's "Wild Out Wednesdays," winner of the Sheikh Music "Rip the Mic" Competition and released 5 mixtapes, which lead him to rack up over 1-million views on YouTube. Wright wants for people to learn something when they listen to his music by discussing situations that his fans can relate to. "The internet allowed me to see what my music did to people – I like being able to see the response. When you rap, you have a voice and this is how I balance my thoughts," says Wright.
In November 2011, Wright signed to Funk Volume after being discovered at the Sheikh Music "Rip the Mic" Competition in 2010. Impressed by his smooth flow, confident stage presence and energy that won over the crowd, Funk Volume knew he was a special talent and would be valuable addition to the team. On the heels of his latest mixtape "Soul Searchin' Next Level," Wright will release "Smoke Out Conversations" on February 20th, and says the tape was inspired by Don Miguel Ruiz's widespread book, "The Four Agreements." "I live the four agreements. The first agreement is be impeccable with your word. People will learn something from this mixtape.

Lee Gresh, AKA DJ Hoppa, was born April 28th to a musical family. His mother being a Cellist, and father having played the Trumpet, he was literally raised on music. From age 5 and on, he has grasped various instruments from the musical spectrum, starting with Piano, Drums, Bass and Guitar; then moving onto Samplers, MPCs, Technics Turntables, and so forth.
Finding like minded individuals in his hometown, DJ Hoppa developed a growing and prosperous Hip Hop scene in the San Fernando Valley (CA) through his label Broken Complex, a thriving imprint specializing in Indie Hip Hop, DJs, and Roots Reggae. It was through these efforts that Hoppa was noticed by Funk Volume, and since teaming up with Hopsin and SwizZz on their nationwide 'I AM RAW' Tour, he has officially joined their roster.
As an artist, DJ Hoppa has produced 8 Full-Length albums and various Digi-Singles (All available on iTunes), a slew of Mixtapes, Mashups, and Remixes, with no sign of slowing down. He has shared the stage with acts ranging from Hardcore Hip Hop (Ghostface Killah, Immortal Technique) to even more mainstream club acts (Kid Sister, Crystal Method), and has been the touring DJ for too many artists to name drop.
As a DJ, Hoppa's style is universal, blending genres seamlessly while maintaining a high energy and good vibe that keeps the crowd on their feet and wanting more.
The duo is known for their extensive musical repertoire that includes their massive 2015 releases "Heavy" featuring OG Maco and "Quick Fast" featuring Wale. Price and Oktane appeared on Hit-Boy's 2014 anthem "Grindin' My Whole Life," and their 2013 Come As You Are mixtape which included their smash single "Shine." These early collaborations have helped to catapult the group to the forefront of hip-hop in the new era.
Audio Push have countless major collaborations including work with Lil Wayne, TI, Wale, Rick Ross, Joey Badass, Method Man, Schoolboy Q, Tyga, Vic Mensa, Travis Scott, Ty Dolla $ign and more. The group recently released The Good Vibe Tribe mixtape featuring OG Maco, Vince Staples, G-Eazy and others. Audio Push is currently setting the table for their major-label debut album later this year.
Officially launching his career in 2005, Mark Battles has chosen the route of establishing a new name and face that the hip hop industry will acknowledge. With the pressure of giving Indianapolis a good name, his plan for success in this regime is to expand his brand Fly America and "take it as far as possible." With this in mind, Mark's plan to take over the internet consists of media outreach through [hip hop] blog sites, social networking, and by utilizing YouTube. After this is accomplished, he would like to transfer his talents over to the radio and continue to promote the success of his brand.
Although he is still trying to make a name for himself, Mark is interested in working with inspirational artists such as Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller, and Lil' Wayne. As a firm believer in conducting thorough research, pursuit and productivity are just as important to Mark and his success, "It's hard work…so continue to work hard."
