Che Bong
The Bullhead*ded Origin Story...

Cut back in time. 10 years ago.. 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. 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 the name is an indicator of their unwillingness to quit. Their drive to continue in their passion no matter what. They are too stubborn and bullheaded to ever stop making music.
Producer and lyricist Maulskull, best known for founding Denver based hip hop outfit Black Mask, has been making noise in the indie rap scene for more than 6 years. Both solo and with full band backing, he has toured nationally promoting his pirate hip hop. Maulskull has played hundreds of shows, sharing stage space with respected acts like Grieves, Pharoahe Monch, Gza, Mac Lethal, Asher Roth, Slightly Stoopid, Mix Master Mike, RJD2 and even 80's rockstars Warrant just to name a few, as well as full scale national tours in 2012 and 2013 with DJ Abilities (Rhymesayers), Sadistik (Fake Four), The Chicharones (Camobear), Louis Logic (Fake Four), Sleep (Strange Famous) and many more. Fueled by the success of the most recent solo album (2012's "Us & Them") and Maulskull's Death By Thr33s EP series, which offered up a new 3 song EP every week for 19 consecutive weeks, he took his live solo set out for the entire summer on Warped Tour 2012, performing on the "Bring It Back" stage and distributing free music (over 7,000 copies of "Us and Them) hand-to-hand. In 2013, Maulskull has been hard at work producing tracks for his friends Sadistik, The Chicharones, Mane Rok, Prime Element, Verble and his Black Mask partners Aklock and AGFlux. Maulskull is also producing two new records for long time friend and touring buddy, Sleep of Oldominion (SFR) and the first is scheduled for release in the fall of 2013. You can check out Maulskull's amazing body of work for free at and enjoy a roller coaster ride of collaboration with artists like Tha Alkaholiks, Moka Only (Swollen Members) Josh Martinez, Celph Titled, Louis Logic, Verbal Kent (Molemen), Sleep, Verbal, Sole, Sapient and Eternia to name a few. Maulskull is currently in the studio recording his sophomore album "Un-amazing Grace" and working hard to bring his music to your doorstep in the coming year.
