"This is our brotherhood." - Beast 2012
Beasts of the Beat started at Northpointe Academy in Highland Park, MI. In the winter of 2012, Joe Vercellino (Mr. V), picked out nine students ranging from 9-years old to 15-years old. These kids were not chosen because of their talents, but by a combination of ability, personality, and desire for a creative community.
Over the course of 2013, the boys in Beast of the Beat started experiencing life together; writing, traveling, talking together about their struggles, and a vision for a new sound in a city too often defined by its crime rates and landscape. Beast of the Beat began recording their first EP, rapping at their school assemblies, street performing and making other appearances over the course of the year.
Beasts of the Beat is an intentional community of artists and their teacher, dedicated to experiencing life together and learning to become strong, dedicated and consistent. Men.
