Dizzy Wright
Dizzy Wright
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.
DJ Hoppa
DJ Hoppa
"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.
Audio Push
Audio Push
Audio Push emcees Oktane and Price Tag might be young guns in the rap game, but they are approaching their careers with the swagger of elder statesmen. The rappers from the Inland Empire section of Southern California are forerunners of the fast rising "jerk" movement, boasting the sub-genre's first tribute record, "Teach Me How To Jerk.

Their skilled energetic jerk style bares similarities to '80s Ska mixed with rapid skipping, squatting and popping movements. But the former crump battle dancers can also spit. They write their own rhymes and posses impressive confident conversational flows.

Produced by Kadis and Sean of Roz Music Entertainment, "Teach Me How To Jerk" vibrates with hypnotic energy. It was the buzz they received throughout the I.E. and MySpace that secured them show dates, including a set at the highly regarded Texas Summer Music Conference. They caught the attention of Roz Entertainment, struck a production deal and started working on more songs, including a remix to their already popular "Teach Me How To Jerk."

While "Teach Me How To Jerk" will serve as their introduction to many, Audio Push is multi-dimensional. Other songs on their self-titled debut range from the hip-hop ballads like the fly Auto-Tune styled "Aviator" and bouncy "Chose You"; retro flavored braggadocio "Mike Jackson Bad," rock fueled "Audio Kiss," and the piano driven, uplifting message song "Run Away."

It's been a good minute since a new group broke out West without being associated with an already established superstar name. But Audio Push is that good. They don't need the co-sign. Their hype, energy and talent is enough to blaze a trail. It's already in motion.
Mark Battles
As a young, up-and-coming artist born and raised in Indianapolis, self-proclaimed hip hop artist Mark Battles' success is driven by his desire to properly represent his hometown with the production of effective music that listeners will not only appreciate, but also remember. With influences such as Eminem, Tupac, Jay-Z, Big Pun, DMX, LL Cool J, and Drake, Mark describes his own style as not only "modernized" hip hop, but also "the essence of real hip hop".

Officially launching his career in 2005, Mark Battles has chosen the route of establishing a new name and face that the hip hop industry will acknowledge. With the pressure of giving Indianapolis a good name, his plan for success in this regime is to expand his brand Fly America and "take it as far as possible." With this in mind, Mark's plan to take over the internet consists of media outreach through [hip hop] blog sites, social networking, and by utilizing YouTube. After this is accomplished, he would like to transfer his talents over to the radio and continue to promote the success of his brand.
Although he is still trying to make a name for himself, Mark is interested in working with inspirational artists such as Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller, and Lil' Wayne. As a firm believer in conducting thorough research, pursuit and productivity are just as important to Mark and his success, "It's hard work…so continue to work hard."
