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

Icewear Vezzo. Up The Sco feat Lil Durk (Video)

Icewear Vezzo. Up The Sco feat Lil Durk

A Detroit figurehead and a quintessential hustler, Icewear Vezzo brings a grizzled wisdom and a sharp wit every time he hops in the booth. Unconcerned with sportsmanship, Vezzo aims to dominate the opposition with Up The Sco,” his latest video single. Armed with a woozily swung beat from Detroit producer Rocaine–an instrumental for the sizable number of sippers in Vezzo’s fanbase–”Up The Sco” finds Vezzo delivering an effortlessly fly 16 and a raspy-voiced hook before handing the mic off to a hungry Lil Durk, who delivers the kind of vicious “no auto” missive that only he can provide. In the video, directed by Counterpoint 2.0, Vezzo and Durk deck themselves out in ice and mob with a sea of associates that rap along to their every word. “Up the Sco” is the latest in a run of street singles for the prolific rapper and entrepreneur, following last month’s “Different Bag” and recent collabs with Bankroll FreddieGT, and more.

Respected from The A to The Bay and everywhere in between, Icewear Vezzo helped build the Detroit rap scene into the flourishing behemoth it is today.  Since releasing his first mixtape The Clarity in 2013, Vezzo built a large and loyal fanbase in The Mitten and beyond, feeding the streets and his 131k YouTube subscribers with high-quality releases and representing for Detroit on tracks by Big SeanG HerboDrakeo The RulerDJ MustardZaytoven, and many others. The 31-year-old artist frequently collaborates with other major figures in the Detroit scene–in just the past two years, Vezzo made waves with songs like Meg Thee Stallion” ft. Babyface Ray, GT & Veeze (7.8 million YouTube views. named one of the Best Songs of 2020 by Passion Of The Weiss), The Sit-Down” ft. Babyface Ray (6.2 million views), and Dog Action” ft. Rio Da Yung OG (10 million YouTube views).

In addition to his heavy stature in the rap game, Vezzo makes moves as an entrepreneur in multiple industries. He’s the owner of his own label Iced Up Records, recently launched the Iced Up Films, a production company whose first film Price Of Love (starring Vezzo himself) is available for rent on Amazon, and is the CEO of his own clothing company Drank God Clothing. Though he’s a self-made man, Vezzo never forgets to give back–his company Iced Up Realty focuses on providing affordable housing in the Detroit community in which he was raised, and he teamed up with his mom to start The Detroit Rappers Organization, which is heavily involved in seasonal giveaways and field trips for Detroit’s youth.

Currently preparing his upcoming Rich Off Pints EP and a highly-anticipated album in partnership with Active Mindz Music Group, Vezzo is locked-in, making some of the best music thus far in his career and attracting A-List collaborators who respect his hustle. Keep your eyes peeled for more from Vezzo very soon.

Scolla – #ThirdEyeWide EP Produced by iRockSays

Published

on

By

The Detroit frontmen of VibeHausScolla and iRocksays are back to end the first quarter of 2021 with the release of an incredibly succinct and soulful body of work entitled “ThirdEyeWide”

.

Half-rapper, half-singer, but all talent. Detroit, Michigan native, “Scolla” blends an introspective lyrical style with infectious melody. Scolla’s pen is well-respected amongst his peers, having released multiple projects and collaborating with artists such as Nipsey Hussle, Freeway, Travis Scott and Mac Miller, before taking a hiatus from rap. Scolla now returns with his new EP entitled “ThirdEyeWide” produced in its entirety by multi-platinum producer “iRockSays.”  Scolla is also currently working on multiple projects to be released later this year.

Message from Scolla:

I’ve been living with quite a lot on my spirit. 2020/Quarantine was a powerful period of self-work and realignment for me. I’ve been documenting this journey along the way and I felt at this point that I was ready to begin sharing these discoveries with you. It starts with this offering. #ThirdEyeWide

is a 3-Track ep I recorded in my home studio, produced entirely by my brother iRocksays and it serves as page one of this next chapter. The number 3 is the trinity, the sign of light workers and those involved in spiritual development. Over the past 4 months I’ve continued to see the number series “313” which is not only Detroit’s area code but an angel number which aligns with so many current things in my life. All of this played a large role when it came to creating the project and especially when I partnered with my brother Rich Hustle to create the cover art. This artwork represents the divine feminine, our highest selves. I pray this brief body of work resonates with you. #Tribe

With Love,

OG
