DopeHead (of the much-recently-celebrated Bruiser Brigade) has just unveiled Plaid Palm Trees. This completes the triangle formation of a no-fuck-given rap bumrush headed on by Danny Brown‘s anti-heroic masterpiece, XXX, then C.H.I.P.$.‘ druggy, UFO invasion in audio form, Couch Potato. In typical Bruiser (#)style(!!), DopeHead showcases many styles…many styles (couldn’t help it)…during the course of this free album…and does it masterfully, worlds better (and more enthralling) than practically any other never-been-signed/new signee/old rapper still making rap who gets crazy love on the Internet artist out there. Fuck the talk, go enjoy this.
Oh and to all my thoroughbred Wu heads…Blue (fucking) Rasberry is on this (apparently she is the new Bruiser songstress?!)!!
In celebration of Dopehead‘s recent solo video, “Airbags”, we’re supplying you with some goods from the Bruiser Brigade rep that may have flown below your collective radar sweeps. Here we have a self-produced album by Dopehead, put together in 2008, Dopehead Musick Vol. 1…featuring nothing but his well-carved witty and downright disrespectful punchline antics over tripped out, minimalist beats. 15 bangers that leave us fed with a plethora of quotables. Some definite lo-fi goodness on here…gems below:
Dopehead “Like We Do In The D” (Produced by Dopehead)
Dopehead “Banging That Snow” (Produced by Dopehead)
Dopehead “Keep Um Watching” (Produced by Dopehead)

If you’re a fan of that Bruiser style (#STYLE), then be sure to scoop this while you’re waiting for Plaid Palm Trees and that Danny Brown X Black Milk EP.
Also! Check Dopehead out live in a city near you rockin’ with Danny Brown, Despot, and Das Racist (for their Relax Tour).
Bruiser Brigade‘s own Dopehead drops the first visuals off of the upcoming Plaid Palm Trees. Very fresh indeed…especially hearing him on a more calm-type delivery…though best proceed knowing that his bars are still full to the tippy with tough words (a few well-known rappers even get brought up on fraud charges here as well).
Honestly, this just upped it for me in regard to his range and capabilities as far as a dolo artist are concerned. Eagerly awaiting that PPT shit. Plus he rocked over a sample I’ve flipped twice already…archival status.
