The Growing Process is the second studio album by American hip hop recording artist Dizzy Wright, released May 26, 2015 by Funk Volume and distributed by Warner Bros. The album features guest appearances from Big K.R.I.T., Tech N9ne, Hopsin, Krayzie Bone, Layzie Bone, Jarren Benton, SwizZz, Berner, and Mod Sun, among others.

The album peaked at #47 on the Billboard 200 charts.[1]

Critical response[edit]

Dylan Yates of The Metropolist wrote: "While no new topics are covered within Dizzy’s latest offering, The Growing Process is a solid attempt on the Las Vegas rappers part to give props to the lyrical aesthetic of the genre. An aesthetic, he suggests, that was more prevalent in rap 20 years ago. It also provides a soundscape rich enough to keep even the average Hip Hop listener’s interest piqued."[2] Nicholas DG of HotNewHipHop explained that even the applause-worthy messages of these songs wind up getting downplayed, sharing verse-vacancy with cocky bars, like, for example, on "Train Your Mind," where Dizzy attempts to take onus for molding rap culture and the community before putting himself on a pedestal.[3]

Commercial Performance[edit]

The album has only sold 8,575 copies[4] since its 2015 release.
