Dopehead – Plaid Palm Trees
Wow, they asked me back to write again. Not really sure why, but anyways I got something new you should check out. This week’s feature is Plaid Palm Trees by Detroit’s DOPEHEAD. Most of you may know of dude from Danny Brown’s XXX album as towards the end of the summer you were tweeting and retweeting “I need some brain I think I lost mine…” Alas…he provides an entire mixtape full of quotables to fill up peoples timelines. 13 tracks in all, some standout cuts are “Sharingan”, “Free”, “Sephiroth” (Skywlkr is one producer I hope we hear a lot more from in the future), and “Young Dog”. With this release, it needs to be stated that the Bruiser Brigade is probably to dopest crew in Hip-Hop right now: XXX, Adventures Of A Couch Potato, and Plaid Palm Trees. You’d be hard pressed to disagree.
Onto more pressing matters…
Washington Redskins at Carolina Panthers (-2.5)
It was all good just a week ago for the Redskins, from first place to being dogs to a 1-5 team. Carolina has cover almost every game this year but usually they’re the dogs so hopefully the pressure of being favored won’t get to them.
Atlanta Falcons at Detroit Lions (-3.5)
This game I think well see how good/bad both of these teams really are. Detroit’s inability to control the clock really gets put on display here.
Pittsburgh Steelers at Arizona Cardinals (+3.5)
There are people in NFL scouts collecting a paycheck who said Kevin Colb was going to be a good quarterback. #OccupytheNFL
Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings (+9.5)
Two words: Christian Ponder
Pick: Green Bay
