If Dizzy Wright isn’t already on fans’ 2012 watch list, it’s about to time to make a spot for him. The Vegas emcee’s project SmokeOut Conversations has been making its rounds for a few weeks now and gets stronger with each new single. Where much of the push so far has been focused around the high-energy records like “Solo Dolo” & “Can’t Trust ‘Em” (which also made its way into this month’s Crew Love), the visuals for the more introspective “Teamwork Makes The Dream Work” will take listeners in a very different direction. It’s a mature, thoughtful record that deals with pressures and contradictions of coming up in today’s music industry. And it’s poetic that just as Dizzy is rapping about an inability to make it on his own, his fans chip in with videos of their own.
