5. Funk Volume
Star Player: Dizzy Wright
Making a name for yourself on the Billboard charts is an impressive feat for any artist, but it means so much more if you’re a part of an indie collective. Being that Dizzy Wright’s first two projects for Funk Volume both reached the top 50 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, his blueprint is already laid out as an artist with rising commercial appeal. Wright’s forthcoming The Second Agreement project already has us interested, boasting great potential to rep for both his Las Vegas roots and Funk Volume’s West Coast origins.
