Dizzy Wright was born in Flint, Michigan and grew up with his favorite rappers being Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, of which his uncles Layzie Bone and Flesh-N-Bone are members, and Nas. At the age of four he moved with his mom and siblings to Las Vegas, Nevada. He began rapping at just 8 years old with the group DaFuture which included his brother and a very close friend.
His mother wrote his raps at the time and was a concert promoter so he was exposed to the music industry early even doing youth reporting at major awards shows like the BET Awards and interviewing Tyreese, St. Lunatics and Boyz II Men. He credits this for being the reason he wants to stay away from major record labels and stick to independent labels. In seventh grade Wright lived in a homeless shelter with his family for five months. Throughout the rest of high school Dizzy lived in Georgia and California before moving back to Las Vegas when he was in twelfth grade. In 2010, Wright took part in and won the Sheikh Music Rip the Mic competition, which impressed record label Funk Volume. In 2010, he also appeared on 106 & Park’s Wild Out Wednesday, as Dizzy D Flashy.
