Real Talk: Dizzy Dizasta (Final Draft)

Hunger is a strange thing in the Hip-Hop world it can be something that drives you to reach unparalleled heights or it can be something that ultimately consumes you. In the city of Wor Hip Hop is a serious affair and Dizzy Dizasta understands this but wants you to also understand he is not just hungry………. He is STARVING!!

Time to break bread once again b!

Brother Menelik: What’s Good my brother, introduce your self …

Dizzy: What up yall, its ya boy Dizzy Dizasta of Str8 Up Ent. & Dirty Clanzmen General/Wu town representer.  The Official Dizasta!

How long have you been rhyming for?

Since 6th grade but I really started going in with the writing in Middle School. I’ve always been a fan of REAL hip-hop since birth.

What artists have you worked with or plan to work with in the future?

Wow! Well i just did a track with Termanology and another with Sean Price, but I’ve worked/opened up for many other legendary artist such as Krumbsnatcha, Redman, Eric Sermon, Keith Murray, Saigon, Blaq Poet, Canibus, Cappadona, Buddha Monk, Lord Jamar, Tony Touch, PF Cuttin, Armageddon, Prospect, Special Teamz, Peter Parker, Dungeon Masta & many more. I’m all about getting that stamp of approval from the legends in the game first before really going in.

I know you down with Wu-Tang Management but how did that come about?

Yeah well it def feels good to be affiliated with a brand that I grew up idolizing. Basically I’ve been down with my fam Jimmy Kang  of Str8 Up Ent. since day 1  grinding and building our brand. So CEO of Wu Tang Management made my dude Jimmy Kang VP of Wu Tang Management, therefore blessing me into the fam to become an affiliate. But at the end of the day I rep Dirty Clanzmen, Str8 Up Ent. & myself. I go hard for mine I’m not just gonna ride off there already built brand. I’m trying to build my own empire. They def my fam though. I got mad love for them as they do me.

You have been putting in a lot of work; do you feel you get the respect you deserve?

I mean yes & no because at the end of the day I know where I’m headed and what I’m doing. A lot of people would love to have the opportunities that I have but they don’t try to join the movement. I’ve spread mad love amongst Worcester and nothings been done with it. So at the end of the day, as long as I have my health, my music and my fam, all that other stuff is irrelevant. I show love to everyone if I don’t get it in return hey its all good. I wish nothing but success and greatness for every artist from my city.

How would you describe your style?

I would describe my style as something you can think about. I write nothing but realness and stuff people can relate to. I aint rapping bout cars and jewels I aint got. Nah I’m spitting about those dudes who be faking it and how perseverance is key to success in this game. I write music that you can learn from. Music that’s captivating.

 

What projects are you currently working on or have planned b?

Well I’m bout to release my Debut mixtape “The Official Dizasta VOL.1” real soon. I’m also working on the Dirty Clanzmen album along with Dungeon Masta. Also Matt Bastardo and I got something in the works as well as me and Killa T. I got so many projects I’m working on right now but my main one is my mixtape. Ive been working on this for a while trying to perfect my sound and I feel it’s finally ready for the world. The best way to stay in tune is http://www.str8upent.com

 

You told me in one of our meetings that you feel people don’t take you serious at times, why do you feel like that?

Honestly I feel this way because one main reason… This music game is so corrupted now a days that when I drop all the names of these legends I’m working with people seem to think that the one hit wonders on the radio out now are bigger ,so they think my moves aint that major. Trust I’ve heard lots of hate now. But like I said, it’s all good because at the end of the day Legends never die and that’s why I fucks with the legends before I ever sell out.

 

I noticed you have worked with quite a few established artists, how did you make that happen?

Basically it’s all about networking man. as I said in one of my verses “You gotta grind for what’s rightfully yours and never mind all these hating ass niggas and slores” lol. I just built with all these artist and helped them out in some what way to gain love from them. Plus not to mention I always keep my bars tight so that’s a plus lol.

Aight b, anything you want to get off your chest?

Yeah. If you aint got no real content to rap about, then stop please, because music is already saturated enough. We don’t need another song about girls, money, cars, clothes or jewels. I want to hear about real life events. Real everyday shit. That’s the essence of hip-hop. Lets keep it alive yall. make sure yall stay tuned for the release of The Official Dizasta VOL.1. It’s gonna be a banga! Shout outs to my Str8 Up Ent. fam, my Lunatic Fringe fam and my Dirty Clanzmen fam (Manny MacGyver, Dungeon Masta, Matt Bastardo, Ern Dawgy, Struxx and Mark Celli. Keep the peace yall  1.

Real Talk: Klep

   If someone asked me to describe Klep, the one word that comes to mind is longevity. Since the ’90s, Klep has been a major figure in Worcester hip-hop and is regarded by many as a local legend. Time to break bread, this is REAL TALK!

 Brother Menelik : How’d you get the name Klep?
Klep: I was actually told a long time ago that I “steal the show” when I perform, so therefore the name Klep, which is short for kleptomaniac, fit undeniably.

You have a long hip-hop history in this city. I remember when I was coming up; there were two crews that had it on lock, 180 and F.O.E.S.L. How was this so?
First off, shout out to all the members of F.O.E.S.L.!! And the 180 Krew is what made me who I am, not just as a rapper, but as the man I am today. A lot of growth, pain and understanding of self took place throughout my entire involvement of that team, and not for me, but all members.
I think what made us who we were had to do with the work we put into our teams. We set the tone for performing live out here. Providing that WOW! factor is what both teams strived for, and it worked for us. We never really had a chance to express ourselves on records like we wanted. But best believe, we could pack a show in those days, which is actually harder to do locally now, unless you have that viral buzz that everyone is used to.

As one of the most ferocious battle MC’s out here, what is one of your favorite lines that you’ve written and why?
I have a lot, but here’s one that tends to stick: let’s see, “Y’all beat around the bush when you write me? I flow straight to the point like the dull end of a knife…I don’t negotiate with beef; I either walk or fight. I don’t just compliment a dime; I either fuck then wife…y’all tuff, but y’all can be a lot harder. Real thugs will take a little off ya top, and I ain’t talking ‘bout barbers…heavy flow like holding my rhyme could lean your posture; I’m learning how to spit like monsters!”

What is your most memorable battle?
Banor from F.O.E.S.L., of course!!! That was major out here. Two guys with something to lose—their fans and reputation as an emcee! It didn’t get any more classic than that!What do you have cooking right now?
Right now, I have numerous projects. I’m not just a guy chasing the dream of a rap career. I own a registered company known as Triad Fam Entertainment, where I’m currently managing a female artist by the name of JONGI, song writing and working on my first solo project titled Y NOT? And I’m now partnered with We R Us Entertainment, where we book major acts to come out and rock stages for y’all such as Trey Songz at Hanover Theater last January. Also a film company known as Goldilocks Productions, currently producing and co-musically supervising a hip-hop film ‘bout a white female rapper from Mass. Also look out for my music video, being produced as we speak, for my upcoming single, “If I could,” off of Y NOT?

How do you explain your longevity?

Honestly I think it comes with being humble and still being willing to learn and network. I don’t do music that’s dated, and I don’t walk around the town like I’m some big local celebrity ‘cause the truth is, like every major release, there will always be new customers who have never even heard of you! So the key is to stay humble and keep working and don’t be afraid to try something different ‘cause the times have changed from then till now, but everything I do just happens to be who I am. I’m just now learning myself, as an artist, to be real. And hopefully everyone will enjoy what I have to offer.

What are your thoughts on Worcester hip-hop today?
I’m so glad you asked this. ’Cause honestly these guys today do not know how good they have it! We are in a time where you don’t need a record company to get on. All you need is an after-school job and a laptop or computer! And that’s real talk. Most of them probably don’t know what a DAT machine is—everything is MP3 wav files now. But nowadays, the game is so independently driven that all you have to do is record clean, hot music and start a wave on the net. Next thing you know, you’re the next soulja boi! Truth be told, if you’re an emcee, and you want to do this the rest of your life, and you’re on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc., and you have a little money to spend on travel and marketing, and your fan base isn’t poppin’—then you either suck or you’re not going as hard as you think you are.

But there are a few that grind hard. And my hat goes off to them ’cause they keep Worcester hip-hop alive like you guys at HHTT and Kinda Dusty. You guys have stepped it up from cafeteria talk to the World Wide Web. And that’s what Worcester has to get a grasp on. We can do it like the majors now! Why are we still recording demos in our basements? Do it big or don’t do it at all. Or just say you’re doing it for fun and stop pretending.
