Let the Record Show, the crate-dug interview series in which artists discuss their favorite songs of all time as the tracks spin on vinyl, continues its second season today with Las Vegas rapper Dizzy Wright.
Filmed on location at Dizzy’s newly opened, buzz-worthy Sin City street wear shop Still Movin’, Wright takes hosts Mike Pizzo and Warren Peace on a musical journey of his influences, as select cuts from his life’s soundtrack spin on vinyl. The episode comes as Dizzy makes his way back home to Las Vegas, closing out The Independent Grind tour with Tech N9ne this week.
From reminiscing on his family’s connection to Bone Thugs-n-Harmony to watching his child be born to the sounds of Bob Marley, Wright reveals never-heard-before details about his life story, set to his favorite tracks of all time. Golden era hip-hop classics from 2Pac, Biggie, and Jay-Z are discussed, as are staples from the catalogs of Peter Tosh and Earth, Wind, & Fire. It all comes together in the end in a surprise reveal that we won’t spoil here.
As an added bonus, Warren Peace tells his infamous Death Row-era DJ story when 2Pac smashed his Biggie records at Club 662.
Dizzy’s appearance on Let the Record Show marks the thirteenth episode in the series and the ninth episode released this year, following each The Crystal Method, Atmosphere, Skyzoo, Troyboi, Blockhead, Chromeo’s Dave 1, Demigodz rapper Apathy and DJ A-Trak. Let the Record Show will continue in the coming weeks with new episodes featuring Bob James, Evidence, Flosstradamus, and Kurupt.
