It’s officially 420 & at midnight one particular Detroit artist’s album went live to the world. That artist happens to be DOPEHEAD, one of Detroit’s most talented word weaving lyricists. The Bruiser Brigade member is back from a four year span between records with his latest full length effort “Beautiful Chaos“. The contradictory title intrigues, while the albums first doses in the form of “Sunshine” & “Love Is” entice the listener to dive in. With that, I decided it was time to find out more about DOPEHEAD & his new album so of coarse I asked him 7 Questions.
COMMi$$ION: It’s been four years since the release of your last project “Devil’s Heaven”, bring on 2018 & you’re dropping “Beautiful Chaos” on 4/20. Going into this album was there anything you wanted to be sure you tackled differently during the creation process?
DOPEHEAD: Hell yeah man off top I wanted to do more story telling and show more lyricism bars is life my g
COMMi$$ION: What can fans expect – if it was possible to summarize “Beautiful Chaos’ in one or two sentences what would you tell them?
DOPEHEAD: With this album Beautiful Chaos fans can expect the unexpected !
COMMi$$ION: As a young kid did you always know you wanted to rap, or was there one particular moment that struck you looking back that sealed the deal & began your foray into music?
DOPEHEAD: My family is heavy in music my great grandfather was a singer in a 5 man group back in his day I lucked up and found his record in our house at the time took it to my great grand mother she was looking at me hella shook like you just found the magic next day she gave me a tape recorder and I started freestyling on blank tapes watching mtv shit was the illest I was like 7 but yeah I was always rapping I can say in 93 I was a lil kid and I copped Biggie Smalls ready to die and that shit made my brain explode
COMMi$$ION: iTunes shows a single feature by “Milan Ariel” is this true or can we expect some surprise appearances scattered across the new album & if so any by Bruiser Brigade team mates?
DOPEHEAD: Yes it’s very True Milan Thee Magnificent will be on the album killing shit !she’s super fucking talented and working with her is So Amazing she writes her own music and makes her own beats so Dope that woman Milan Ariel also J-Kidd is on the album dropping flames much love to him Detroit stand up only 2 features !
COMMi$$ION: Outside of music – does DOPEHEAD draw inspiration from any other elements or factors?
DOPEHEAD: Shit man I draw inspiration from breathing Another Day Alive is Another Day To Be Great
COMMi$$ION: On April 22nd you’ll be performing live at GET JXXKY OR DIE 17 in Hamtramck, MI is this the first of many shows to come? Can we expect a tour to pair along with “Beautiful Chaos”?
DOPEHEAD: Yes it’s the first of many to hit The Sanctuary and it’s about to be wild !! Get Jxxky Or Die Parties Go Stupid but’s it’s all about putting on for the city and giving artist a stage and platform to talk dat shit ! And I’d love to kill stages solo on TOUR so if they watching DOPEHEAD KILLS STAGES !
COMMi$$ION: Lastly, we got two video gems in the form of “Sunshine” & “Love Is” what was the inspiration behind these videos & if you could create a visual for any of the remaining songs on the album which track would you pick for the video treatment?
DOPEHEAD: Well with the Sunshine video I wanted to show off my city and let ppl get a view of what I see you feel me like let them get that real Detroit street shit ! And with the Love is Video the inspiration was bars I wanted ppl to sit , listen and watch BARS

1.  What inspired you to create this new platform?
I wanted to connect Artists creatively. It’s a huge generational and cultural gap that exists in our scene today and I wanted to get us to work together. We’re locked down why not? My Father did the same for musicians back in his day by connecting their scene. It’s in the blood.
2. What is your background when it comes to music?
I use to produce music. Also ran a Battle Rap league called Scheme Street with my partners.
3. What type of response have you gotten so far from the public? 
All love. This is a breath of fresh air. Not only are we inspiring artists we’re getting genuine excitement from our fanbase. Countless artists have reached out to step on The Beat6Teen stage. We’re humbled.
4. How are the artist and producers feeling about the platform?
Mostly every artist has told me the Platform has inspired them to CREATE. They say they haven’t been writing or making beats and Beat6Teens woke up that creative spirit. And that’s what we love…RAW, ORGANIC CREATIVITY!
5. To date what have been some of your biggest challenges?
The Pandemic has forced us to call audibles. Studios are closed, Social distancing guidelines won’t let us record visuals in certain areas. We’re eventually going to transition to venues for live shows but no one knows when that will happen or what that looks like with the changes from Covid-19.
6. What has been your most exciting moment so far as to what you have created? 
Watching the reaction from artists and fans alike genuinely enjoying and anticipating the broadcasts.
7. Where do you hope to see Beat16 go thru the end of 2020?
 We want to be a platform for artists to connect and showcase their talents. Hoping to grow and connect artists from all over.
8. How does a artist or producer get involved with the platform?
Email submissions to beat6teen@gmail.com QUALITY SUBMISSIONS will be favored. No politics. Send some dope shit and we’ll book you.
9. We have noticed you have added some twist to things, can you share any surprises you got up your sleeve?
Beat6Teen Duos has been announced for July. 2 random MC’s will be paired with a producer. Should be interesting.
10. If you were on a elevator with powerful investors and you got 20 floors to go, how would you explain what going on with Beat16 in the short time you have there attention?
I’d tell them to tune in and enjoy Raw, Creative energy. It explains itself.
11 Any last thoughts? 
Stay Inspired. Protect The Music!

fourth studio album by Detroit veteran emcee, Fatt Father. ‘King
Father’ takes listeners on a personal journey through life. Fatt

production on this album was undeniable. There, he found the
soulful sounds of Namibian based producer, Becoming Phill. Marv
Won, Blizzard, Trox, Foul Mouth, Jeremy Ford, and Scud One, also
contributed powerful production to ‘King Father’ as well.
The 12-track album showcases Fatt Father’s growth as a
lyricist, conversationalist and as a father. With features that include
Melanie Rutherford, Finale, Quelle Chris, Fatt Father’s 11 year old
son, DJ Oreeyo, and more. ‘King Father’ is well balanced on every
level. Whether in the car, gym, or living room, this album is the
perfect soundtrack. After many projects and years as an emcee, Fatt
Father continues his dominant reign as King Father.
