This song, and the new project, are really going to change what fans think they know about Bizzare. “Rufus is my real name. I chose that name because I felt like it was time the fans got to hear my story” he says of his forthcoming eponymous release. With that in mind, the Detroit emcee tapped producer and frequent collaborator Super to create Bizarre’s most diverse and introspective project to date. But rather than a complete departure from the offbeat style fans have come to know, Bizarre is pivoting towards musical content that encompasses all of who he is and what he’s lived.
 

As he began trying to define the new project’s direction, Bizarre played a few songs for fellow D-12 alum Denaun Porter. “At the time, the only song I had where I was singing was ‘Wish I Was High,’ and he stopped the song halfway through and told me this was what I needed to do for the whole project,” Bizarre recalls.


Singing his way through Rufus allowed Bizarre to tap into a level of vulnerability he might not have been able to reach otherwise. Through this equally emotionally draining and cathartic process, Bizarre shares his real life experiences on everything from his years-long battle with weight-loss; to the ways in which his life has been molded by his stepfather; to the loss of his grandmother, complete with a recording of what would be their last conversation. Having direct access to his fans and the ability to receive their immediate and direct feedback over the past few years has allowed Bizarre to release music that framed his more serious, introspective content in such a way that those songs can co-exist alongside his more irreverent tracks.  In other words, Rufus becomes the beginning of a new chapter for Bizarre, bringing along the fans that are ready to grow with him, while giving new fans a 360-degree view of who he’s always been.

The inaugural Motor City Industry & Music Festival is coming to Detroit’s TCF Center, November 13-14th. It will feature The Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee, HuffPosts, Phil Lewis, Bigs Sean’s Manager Zeno Jones and other national and local influencers in music, media, technology, business and more! Tickets are currently on sale at industryfest.com.

After a nearly 18-month pandemic hiatus, The Capital Brand led by husband and wife, JT and Randi Maples will be making their mainstage production debut this fall, with the first Motor City Industry Festival. On November 12th through 14th, the celebrity and community-filled event will include conference panels discussing the music industry, entrepreneurship, business, financial literacy and more; a high-end car & fashion show, a job fair, local small business vendors, and live concert performances featuring A-list performers and musicians from around the world.

 

“People want to attend events again. Our job is to make these events meaningful and worth their time,” says J.T. Maples, The Capital Brand owner and event producer for Industry Fest. “The goal is to produce a weekend-long series of impactful conversations, connections and of course live concert performances that the city, state and region will enjoy and anticipate for next year.”

 

Founder of OhSoRadio, co-producer of Industry Fest and wife to Maples, Randi Rossario Maples is already a globally recognized influencer and successful entrepreneur herself. The mogul’s passion and hopes for the event are that people will leave with the sense of “I can do it too!” in regard to pursuing their passions in career, life and in business.

 

“We’re excited to curate something impactful and fresh for the city,” says Rossario Maples. “We’re bringing in some of the biggest social influencers in the fields of music, tech, entrepreneurship, film, investing, business, cryptocurrency, forex trading, digital assets, mainstream media and more in one place to connect, learn, and inspire each other.”

 

Although this event is set to host over 10,000 youth and adults from the region, the scope of Industry Fest is much larger than the November weekend production, as the power couple aim to take the festival in its entirety on a 5-7 city tour beginning in January. More details on dates and locations will become available later this year.

 

Tickets are on sale now at www.industryfest.com to all ages.
