Dizzy Wright's The Growing Process Tour - (Set time: 9:50 PM)
Dizzy Wright's The Growing Process Tour
Not many 21-year old rappers can say that they’ve been rapping for over a decade. The Las Vegas-based rapper began rapping at just 8 years old with the group “DaFuture” with his brother and very close friend – his mother wrote his raps at the time. “My Mom was like Joe Jackson,” says Wright, “She was a concert promoter so I was exposed to the music industry early – we even did youth reporting at major awards shows like the BET Awards.”

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.”

JAHNI DENVER - (Set time: 8:50 PM)
JAHNI DENVER
The musical journey for Jahni Denver was a natural one. Having experienced the hardships of life at a young age (his best friend and sister were both murdered all before he turned 19), Jahni went through a dark period that eventually led to his arrest for cocaine possession in 2007. Using that rock bottom moment as a catalyst for change, the MC in him began to reveal itself and Jahni began to write the story of his life. Most of the material was depressing and mediocre in engineering but the raw lyrical content stayed at the forefront.

After working on various styles and themes, the third version of his debut album Mountain Lion began to take shape. Working with artists like Bizzy Bone showed Jahni Denver an aspect of rap work ethic that continued to inspire his rhymes and motivation. Mountain Lion pt. 2; The Shaman is the latest inception in the “Mountain Lion” series. For this record Jahni worked with Scarface, Strange Music’s Krizz Kaliko, and Snow Tha Product to continue the telling of his story.

Jahni Denver is a compelling storyteller who uses the trials and tribulations of his life to paint a hip-hop story rich in authentic theatrics. Mountain Lion pt. 2; The Shaman is set for release in the fourth quarter of this year.

"Whether sampling other artists or composing his own beats, DJ Hoppa has an innate sense of groove that never comes across as manufactured or mechanical. He borrows sparingly and delivers tastefully -- never running classic tracks into the ground, but presenting them as gentle reminders of the better days, back in the day."

-Jamey Bresden (The Deli Magazine LA)

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.
