This has been a breakout year for 21-year-old La’Reonte “Dizzy” Wright. The 2010 winner of BET’s Wild-Out Wednesday competition dropped his SmokeOut Conversations mixtape on April 20 and watched it enter the iTunes charts at No. 2. His smooth flow and “my way or the highway” approach to the rap game is refreshing, especially in an era when rappers starve for a celebrity co-sign. But with magazines such as XXL and some of the biggest music blogs supporting his music strictly because of his talent, Dizzy is ready to blow. And if the video for “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work,” which incorporates fans from across the country, is any indication, you’d better jump on the bandwagon now before it’s full.
