Dizzy Wright and Demrick
By Jack Barnes
Sharing a love for both hip-hop and marijuana, Las Vegas’ Dizzy Wright and Los Angeles’ Demrick teamed up to release a free, collaborative mixtape, Blaze With Us! Featuring appearances from B-Real, Berner, and Audio Push the 15-track tape is packed with stoner anthems, offering both slow burning jams and hard hitting bangers. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
Both formidable rappers on their own, the two emcees were excited by the idea of working together. “When Demrick and I started this Blaze With Us project, we had the mindset of recreating the same type of chemistry Method Man and Redman had so we paid homage to their Blackout! album with our cover. We’re not trying to duplicate the music, rather, you’re going to feel the same kind of chemistry they had beween them with me and Demrick. We’re damn near going to sound like a group. Blaze With Us is for active stoners, those who wake and bake and then head to work or school. For those who like to smoke throughout the day to keep the engine running,” Dizzy explained.
Two of the tracks off the mixtape come with visuals. In “Hundreds of Thousands” Demrick and Dizzy cruise in red Jeep, coping with the stresses of eviction and running a business with weed, women, and wings and waffles. The psychedelic video for “Roll My Weed” finds Dizzy and Demrick under police surveillance, hotboxing a Mercedes and sending smoke signals. The two MC’s are about to embark on the second half of their national Still Movin Tour, covering the Midwest and East Coast. They are joined by DJ Hoppa, Audio Push, Mark Battles, and T Dubz.
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. Most recently, Dizzy released the 702 EP.
Born in Spokane to a single mother on welfare, the biracial Demrick found peace in hip-hop. After linking with West Coast legend Kurupt as “Young De,” Demrick found his way into the studio with B-Real of Cypress Hill, earning several features on B-Real’s Smoke ‘N Mirrors. In 2013, Demrick teamed up with B-Real and Xzibit to form the Serial Killers, releasing two projects and gracing the stages of Rock The Bells and Lollapalooza. In 2015, Demrick released his first solo album, Losing Focus, on Madchild’s Battle Axe Records, boasting contributions from Logic, Dizzy Wright, and others.After years of learning the rap game from the likes of Xzibit and B Real, Demrick steps into the spotlight with Collect Call.
