As a general in Danny Brown’s Bruiser Brigade, Dopehead’s rap style bears more than a slight similarity to his fellow Detroit emcee. Both are straight spitters in the sense that you can almost hear the saliva splatter with every syllable they squawk. So Dopehead’s Plaid Palm Trees makes for a nice companion piece to Danny’s XXX. He surveys the same Detroit panorama and touches similarly angsty lows and sarcastic middles. He fills the gaps with likeminded punchlines and yet there’s something a little warmer or even accessible in his approach. Download the tape and watch a clip for “Airbags,” below.
