DopeThought / Press

“DopeThought and his producer Worth gave it a whirl. These two surprise me every time I see them perform--mostly because they keep getting better. But this time it was because Worth showed up on crutches (apparently he ate it while doing some extreme hiking a few days ago) and was propped up in the back. Kids, that’s what’s referred to as “dedication.” Right from the get-go DopeThought started calling out fans for being lazy--which I completely respect. If you enjoy what a musician is doing, then show ‘em. Let them know. I can’t stand hip-hop heads who go to shows and just stare at the performer. It's lame. Anyway, after DopeThought put everyone on blast, the crowd pushed to the front and he put down a nasty performance. Without sounding like too much of a fan-boy, I’m thoroughly on board with everything coming from Worth and DopeThought right now. They are arguably the most interesting rap duo in Utah. Do people still say "daps and hugs?" because it applies in this situ”

“Dope Thought of the Make Mind crew deserves a standing ovation for hosting the entire event (which was nearly 11 hours long). According to my tally, he performed three different sets and kept the crowd entertained in between every act -- a tough task considering rappers are notoriously late for everything. If you haven't checked out Mr.Thought's electronic side project DropInOcean, consisting of Dope Thought, his partner in crime Jackson "Worth" Savage and producer Nicko Bellic, you need to rectify that. Think Dope Thought rapping over trap-inspired/dub-step beats.Though not my usual cup of tea, I liked it. It's more of a party-rap take on his usual mellow "conscious" rap. This particular style of hip-hop always goes over well at live shows. I was mouthing "pass that blunt to the front," for the rest of the night.”

“Chapman and Baker said music's influence on people is powerful, and while they might never get record deals, they want to reach out to young people with music. "Hopefully, I can change a lot of kids' minds," Chapman said.”

“Just want to provide good music.”
