Q&A With Veteran Colorado Underground Hip Hop Group Bullhead*ded 

Hey Bullhead*ded! We appreciate and love your true authenticity to the underground Hip Hop culture, especially holding it down Colorado! Please tell us how many years have you guys been making music? What part of Colorado are you guys from? Most importantly, where does the group name Bullhead*ded come from?

We have been rocking shows and making music together for over a decade together. Bullhead*ded officially formed in 2010. Our Origin Story: Cut back in time. 11 years ago (2017).. The location: The Black Sheep. The event: El-P (Now known for Run The Jewels fame) is headlining a concert. Amongst the openers that night were two local hip-hop groups: Made Up Minds and TooTone Taurus. Made Up Minds consists of Nato Lucero and Found*ded Records founder ZETfree. TooTone Taurus was made up of Che Bong and Jay P. S. The two groups hit it off. As Che Bong’s lyrics highlight in “Ded*dicatoAmore”, “Collabs between the two groups got it started right.

We Got itchy feet and hit the road like every other night.” Over the course of the next year the two groups played some 200 shows together. In 2010 the collective put together a grass-roots west-coast tour. Together they decided that it made more sense to tour as one group that no one knows as opposed to two groups no one knows. So, they combined the two groups into one. TooTone Taurus and Made Up Minds Became Bullhead*ded. BULL (Taurus of TooTone Taurus) HEAD (Mind of Made Up Minds) *DED (Found*ded records). A bond of brotherhood was forged during that tour that has already endured the group far beyond the normal life span of a vast majority of hip-hop groups.

The main meaning behind our name is an indicator of our unwillingness to quit. Their drive to continue in our passion no matter what. We are too stubborn and bullheaded to ever stop making music.

A lot of independent Hip Hop is currently coming out of Colorado, what separates you guys from all the other up and coming MC’s and groups?

Che Bong: I think what separates our music from others is that we have been apart of the Colorado music scene over 13 years and have consistently curated our own sound that we feel represents Colorado in particular….

Nato: What separates us as we don’t involve ourselves too much and what others are doing, or try following what is the trending right now as far as the style. I personally don’t listen to too much hip-hop to ensure that my influences are gathered from somewhere else and
present Itself as original as possible.

ZETfree: We are Colorado Hip-Hop!

You guys are extremely original!! How do you guys describe your sound?

Che Bong: Our sound is progressive classic hip hop

ZETfree: Our sound comes from a core of classic boom bap influence from the golden era of hip hop that we carry like a torch into the modern-day. High energy. Dark yet bright. Raw yet polished.

Tell us about your Hip Hop and/or music influences?

Che Bong: To me our music is very personal and heartfelt with wordplay and patterns being a big part of our delivery I know we all are inspired by classic rock, punk, jazz, soul, r&b, folk, and of course hip hop as a whole..

Nato: Sage Francis, Eyedea, Pharcyde, cannibal ox, El-p, MOs Def Mostly conscious rap, But with the good times of beastie boys

ZET: We are of course students of the greats that have come before us, and pay tribute to them. We have even been blessed to share the stage with some of our influences such as Mos Def, and KRS One. We are all three also influenced by a wide variety of music. We all draw from different places, and sounds. I love folk music, Che is electro-soul and Nato comes from a indie-rock background. When we met he was playing bass for a popular local punk band. So, we are all over the place. Haha.

Please breakdown the creative process of your new EP ““Boiled Bones”. We noticed BOOM, one of our experienced contributors gave this album a 8/10 RATING!

ZETfree: The Brazen Series is a reflection of us. Of our trials and tribulations. Of failures and triumph. We feel that this is not only our story. The project is the result of years of trial by fire. We want to invite our listeners to be active participants in our music, and our journey which in someways we know is also theirs. We are doing this through a 3 part story. The first installment “Boiled Bones” is much more in your face and aggressive. It is the fire the world is met with. The second part “Heart Stones” is much more introspective and reflective. The final installment “Brazen” will be an amalgamation of everything we are, and where our story has brought us at that point. With the comics we are creating a world for this journey to take place. The music is a soundtrack to this journey, and also provides a backdrop for our story. The comics follow “Our Young Hero” and their story.

Che Bong: The creative process was to create a world we could take the listener to….with the beats and lyrics we definitely set out to have our music be the perfect backdrop to our comic book that goes with the first installment of a three-part series of “Brazen”…

Nato: First of all collecting the beats, and second of all living the experience to write the lyrics.

Your honest opinion, out of all the songs on the project, which is the one song you guys feel stands out the most!?

Che Bong: My favorite song is “keep my distance “..but “Sorry For The Bad Dancing ” is probably the standout..

Nato: SFTBD Has the most commercial potential but as far as originality and really being in touch with our true feelings I would say keep my distance.

Rappers nowadays think by throwing up a few videos up on social media and pushing quick projects, they can blow up overnight! Give us your view on how over saturated the market is right now with so many MC’s/Producers but not to many quality music.

Che Bong: I definitely agree that music in general has been a bit over saturated due to social media outlets but it has also given people an opportunity to find exactly what suits their tastes although you may have to find the good stuff it’s definitely out there..and in my opinion more than ever..just got to dig…

Nato: We’ve been doing this for more than half of our lives, have put videos up on social media and music but still feel quite content with the progress we’ve made. Everyone today wants to be a rapper but not everyone is it good enough musician to do so bottom line. I personally don’t pay too much attention to the artists around me it tends to make me lose focus of my own project.

If it came down to 1 ALBUM only, what underground Hip Hop album would you guys consider THE BEST OF ALL TIME!!!???……One 1 album you can choose.

Che Bong: Funcrusher plus by company flow it really started the indy hip hop movement to what it is now…

Nato: Personally I would have to say sage Francis personal journals influenced me the most.

ZETfree: I would say Overcast! by Atmosphere spawned (pun intended) a world of influence in underground Hip-Hop.

Here it is! Our most popular question! What is your definition of “underground hip hop”?

Che Bong: Underground hip hop to me is simply the hip hop that is just beneath the surface plenty of then “underground artists” are now on a main stage with movies, radio,tv,etc..underground hip hop definitely has more substance and creativity and heart than most surface hip hop/rap music…

Nato: Any hip-hop that does consist of it own sound and originality. Something that truly comes from the heart for the culture not something that is made to try to impress people with how you’re living.

ZETfree: Underground Hip-Hop is independent hip-hop. It is the voice of the people. A much more honest voice than the one being sponsored by the powers that be, and in turn the masses.

Biggest Hip Hop Cities In The United States 

Biggest Hip Hop Cities In The United States

Since its beginnings in the early 1970s, hip hop culture hasn’t only exploded, it has remained largely consistent in terms of its popularity. With its heavy counterculture themes, it may have taken on different incarnations since its inception, but something that hasn’t changed at all is the cities that have consistently had the strongest hip hip culture and influence within them.

Here are the top hip hop cities in the United States, presented to you in alphabetical order:

Atlanta, Georgia

There’s simply no question that the city of Atlanta is the capital for hip hop cities in the southeastern United States.

The diverse, energetic, and immigrant friendly city is home to many of the most famous names in the hip hop world, including Ying Yang Twins, Gucci Mane, and Young Jeezy. There’s also a very strong underground scene in Atlanta as well.

While Atlantis may not be the only city in the southeastern region of the United States to be immensely popular with the hip hop culture and community, it still arguably is one of the most overlooked cities, as other cities such as New Orleans or Memphis are likely to get more attention.

Memphis, Tennessee

It’s no secret that Memphis is a music city clear and through, and it attracts a very wide range of singers, artists, and musicians.

Today, Memphis thrives as a music city just as it did back in its origins in the blues, and just like Atlanta, it also has a very strong and pronounced underground scene as well.

It should also be noted that one of the most popular hip hop movies ever put to the cinematic screen, Hustle and Flow, was made in Memphis. The film was nominated for and won an Academy Award for Best Original Song.

Miami, Florida

The city of Miami attracts endless tourists and visitors each year for a large number of reasons, but with particular thanks to its white beaches, blue water, and yes, it’s very rich and energetic nightlife. It’s one of the most diverse cities in existence and quite possibly the biggest tourist city in the southeastern United States.

Hip hop may not be what makes Miami so well-known, but the presence of hip hop is still very strong in the city. Numerous famous artists such as Flo Rida and Pitbull are from the city, and the hip hop party scene in the city is virtually unparalleled. If you want to go to a city with very strong hip hop vibes, Miami will absolutely need to be a city that you try out.

New Orleans, Louisiana

As with Memphis, Tennessee, the city of New Orleans in Louisiana is steeped in musical history as well. Many famous contributors to the hip hop world hail form New Orleans, including Juvenile, Curren$y, Master P, Lil’ Wayne, and Birdman (the founder of Cash Money Records).

Today, New Orleans has one of the very strongest presences of southern hip hop in the United States.

New York City, New York

Last but not least, New York City is quite arguably the capital of hip hop in the entire world (even more so than Atlanta or Los Angeles) because not only does it have a very strong hip hop presence, but it’s also where hip hop originated back in the 1970s.

Numerous artists in the hip hop scene call New York their home, including DJ Kool Herc, Ghetto Brothers, LL Cool J, and RUN DMC. That’s not to mention that the underground hip hop scene in New York is very strong as well, with a number of recent breakouts occurring in the city
including Flatbrush Zombies and Action Bronson.

And of course, the Big Apple is also well known as the ‘Concrete Jungle’ of America. There’s simply no question that rap and hip hop plays a role in that.

Top Hip Hop Cities In The United States

All in all, these are the top cities in the United States with the strongest hip hop culture and influence. Granted, there are many other cities with a very strong hip hop and rap culture as well, including Chicago in Illinois and Los Angeles in California, but these are the cities where the rap culture continues to thrive at its strongest and where we continue to see breakout stars hitting the scene and gaining celebrity status on a seemingly regular basis.

Heavy Baby Ft. Recklo & G-Bo Lean – “Robe On (Remix)” (Video) 

Popular Bay Area newcomers Recklo and G-Bo Lean keep the legacy of the late-Heavy Baby alive with a remix treatment to the slain Bay Area recording artist’s last hit, “Robe On”.

Directed by Zach Hurth, Heavy Baby, who appears in the video, Recklo, and G-Bo hit the streets to show the love that the Yay Area has for it’s up-and-coming stars. Flossing in the flyest whips while side showing in the meanest muscle cars, throwing around blue faces, and dancing with the gang. “Robe On” will live on in 2019 and soon the top of the charts. 

Tragically, Heavy Baby was killed over the Summer in Oakland. Fans continue to remember the slain artist through his music. No word at press time of a posthumous project on the way.

Chris Grey – The Beginning (EP) 

Chris Grey, pushes sonic boundaries of spectral R&B with The Beginning EP. 

Drawing from pop, trap, soul, electronic, and rock influences, Toronto’s Chris Grey demonstrates his musicality on his debut EP, properly-titled, The Beginning.

The 4-track project features the sensual “When I’m Gone,” an invitation to spend the night together without the complications of love or a relationship over explosive synths, while “Unusual” conveys the complexities of unexpected emotional attachment, amongst dark undertones. “Give” and “Goodbye” continue the story to its inevitable conclusion. With a trademark sound established, Chis Grey takes listeners on a resounding and vulnerable journey difficult to stop listening to.

The lavish guitar solos add an additional layer to his emotional and vulnerable, contemporary R&B work. It’s only the beginning for this talented young artist.
