    Check Out Big Heed & Alien's "Tipsy" Video - It features celebs, sort of

    Check out this fun, celeb-featuring video for Big Heed & Alien's "Tipsy" by going here.

    The video points out what happens when you take too many slugs off a bottle. Hello David Hasselhoff, Tara Reid, etc.

    Big Heed & Alien met while playing instruments together in the church choir. Their childhood dream of making it big became a reality when an appearance on BET's famed 106 and Park landed them a recording contract.

    Born Shaheed "Heed" Smith & Ali "Alien" Warren in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, Big Heed & Alien both began nurturing their musical interests early on.  Alien started out on the back of his parent's pots and pans and Heed with the first keyboard his mother bought for him at 10 years old. They both honed their skills during countless hours of isolation while on punishment. Alien remembers fondly, "My mother realized I was having more fun [in my bedroom] than going to school, so she bought me my first drum set & piano and let me practice as a reward."

    Separately they developed their talents exploiting the local music scene. Alien started out with local bands eventually playing drums for acts such as Air of Stereograph, B.O.B and Travis Porter.  Already a talented MC, Heed was invited to a studio session with the Dungeon Family after meeting Andre 3000 at a performance at the Tabernacle. From that experience, he was able to log one on one time with Cee-Lo Green where he learned valuable skills that shaped him as a producer.

    In 2008, Merovingian Music executive Robert Watson convinced the two artists to join forces Heed is the MC and Alien is the drummer; together they make up Big Heed & Alien.
