I recently developed a rattle. Seems like its coming from the head area. Does not rattle on cold startup but when operating temp is reached it starts making a bad rattle noise. Noise goes away after 1500 rpm. Sounds like someone threw a bunch or rocks in the head. What could it be?

It sounds like your engine mount might be gone. I just made a video about it. It will show you what to look for to see if its gone.

UPDATE: did a head gasket and tensioner, chain, guides. Went away. 90% sure this noise was caused from the chain due to a failing tensioner
