Dizzy Wright Felt Good Winning The People’s Choice


On His Upcoming EP State Of Mind:

It’s just some thoughtful shit where I’m at. I feel like it’s some shit that’s good for the world, something [where I] can attack it different. I’m just excited about it because I’m getting better, more polished, learning my craft, and growing. You can hear it in my music. I always like to leave myself room to grow, and it’s just a better Dizzy Wright. So I’m excited about it. I don’t [have a release date yet], I’m actually just loading up, and getting all my shit right so we can just do it the right way. [I ust want to] make sure we prepared for everything. Just tryna be on top of things before I drop it.

On Whether Or Not He Will Drop Album This Year:

I’m dropping that shit this year. Everything that I do is in for promotion for that album. Everything that I do for the rest of the year, all my moves is gonna be built around making that album as big as possible. State Of Mind is just the beginning of that, lighting a fire with that.

On His Basketball Skills And The NBA:

[Laughs] ”Man, I’m super nice. I’m a lefty. I got a J. I got buckets for everybody in the world. I used to hoop in high school, that was my first passion. Then I became a daddy, straight away got the music shit poppin. But recently I got back in the gym, just tryna spread my fingers, make sure it hit the net. On Mar. 15 at SXSW I’m gonna be in the basketball tournament, last year Trinidad Jame$ won, but we winning this year! I’m gonna give everybody buckets!

I’ve loved The Miami Heat since Lebron went there, but I just enjoy basketball, I just enjoy teams. I’ve been an Allen Iverson fan, and been rockin’ since he’s been rockin’. But I really like the Pacers this year.
