The Growing Process
Label: Funk Volume
On The Growing Process, Dizzy Wright offers weed as a palliative. "It's peace and love, my n*gg*, go and get stoned," he says on "I Can Tell You Needed It." But some of this "Smoke Box" is too weeded out, and the placid, meditative production doesn't always serve him well. He's got self-help songs ("Train Your Mind"), a keen awareness of social conditions ("God Bless America") and collabos with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony ("Regardless" and "Don't Ever Forget"). But what he really needs is a blast of "Good Vibes" energy, or at least some trap hammers like "Floyd Money Mayweather."
