Independent Hip-Hop heads rejoice! We are proud to present Funk Volume rappers Dizzy Wright and Jarren Benton as a dynamic duo that is ready to help Madison students finish their fall semester with a bang.
Equal parts hard and chill, Dizzy Wright comes out of Las Vegas, Nevada, and has been establishing his own sound since he signed to L.A. rapper Hopsin’s independent record label, Funk Volume.Through his hustle, he earned himself a spot in XXL Magazine’s 2013 Freshman Class. His latest project, State of Mind, is a seven-song EP that dropped in April and peaked at 54 on the Billboard 200. You can listen to State of Mind via Spotify below.
Hailing from Decatur Georgia, Jarren Benton brings an entirely different vein of hip hop with his sound. With influences coming from both Eminem and Outkast, Jarren looks to maintain elements from the mainstream and inject his own element of crazy simultaneously. Benton’s hustle earned him a 2014 Freshman Class designation from XXL, and has most recently been sharing new music every week of #BlackOctober.
If you’re going to take time away from studies before midterms get real, this show is where you’ll want to be to set the weekend off right. See you at Union South!
