His stage name originated from the TEC-9 semi-automatic handgun, a name given to him by rapper Black Walt due to his fast-rhyming Chopper style. Yates later applied a deeper meaning to the name, claiming that it stands for the complete technique of rhyme, with "tech" meaning technique and "nine" representing the number of completion.
"My mom kicked me out when I was 17," Dizzy reveals of the woman who both raised him and managed his career since childhood, "I was thrown out into the world." With a similar story to his inspiration, Tupac Shakur, he took to local clubs to build a network and fan-base by being both skilled and flashy. "I was all about getting people to know my name. I knew the vision, but I didn't know the gesture. You've got to live through this to get an understanding of it." Along the way, Wright says that life taught him to keep a tight circle and to be concerned with how his music sounded in venues just as much as the writing. That dichotomy of substance and swagger has made Dizzy Wright an independent charting sensation with three 2012 releases, "SmokeOut Conversations" (along with the 200,000 times downloaded promotional mixtape), as well as a follow-up EP, "The First Agreement." In turn, the youngest member of Funk Volume has been one of the most active.
Xavier’s generation-defying appeal comes in part because of his live band. A gifted, smooth and well-trained group that includes trumpet, keys, bass, and drums. After years of performing alongside a DJ, Xavier decided it was time to task a crew of expert instrumentalists to help him create a live experience that’s unparalleled in the world of hip-hop. They gently wrap his insightful lyrics in energetic and accessible jazz that consistently captivates crowds of all ages.
While the band’s smooth, patient strumming draws you in, the lyrical portrait Xavier paints of this often gritty world is what leaves audiences of all backgrounds feeling they’re one with a peer or someone who has genuinely lived in their dirt-stained shoes. That’s because they are: Xavier is all of us.Before Xavier ever opened up for Hip Hop pioneers such as; Mobb Deep, KRS-One, Tech N9NE and Rakim, he was raised in Los Angeles by a single mother and eventually wound up homeless – sleeping in his car until he could make a few dollars to lay his head on an actual pillow.
The life lessons he first learned on the streets of L.A pour out when he’s on stage. When Xavier performs his acclaimed song “Sunshine,” it's clear that he longs to be a good father and a positive role model.
“We just got to teach our kids they can change the world,” Xavier raps with his calm though upbeat tone. “They used to tell me, ‘Try them drugs.’ I ain’t never try it.”
Xavier’s heart doesn’t just pour out in his lyrics; he also backs it up with action. He organized an event to feed the homeless, and held his second annual Toy Drive, which brought out some of Las Vegas’ best talent to pay it forward for children in need. Mike has been a Keynote Speaker for the House of Blues Music Forward Foundation and has also performed for the neglected and abused children who live at St. Jude's Ranch. In addition to the above, Xavier has partnered with the Subversive Music Foundation for the second year to raise over $80,000 to provide scholarships for music education + studio time to promote respectful, non-violent drug-free music to underprivileged youth.
With interviews and performances on popular TV outlets such as FOX, NBC, and ABC News, Xavier has expanded his reach to the masses. In 2018 Xavier partnered with Toyota for a special performance, and also shared the bill with world-renowned artists such as The Weeknd, Florence + The Machine, and Travis Scott at The Life Is Beautiful Music Festival. His success has quickly carried over into 2019 with the release of his new album titled 'Still Dreaming,' and a sold-out show at Vinyl Las Vegas, a 750 capacity venue located inside the famed Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
