NEWS: Redhead Visits @HowardU Homecoming in Shredders Apparel

20141020-002019.jpg

I’ve had a very interesting weekend by visiting my alma mater Howard University’s Homecoming! While seeing most of my old friends and associates, I was also wearing this dope sweater sent to me by Shredders Apparel, a clothing line based in Texas. It is a Cosby-ish sweater designed in tribute to Wu-Tang Clan’s 36 Chambers. I’m a BIG fan of the Wu and also have a cool relationship with Method Man, so I was honored to wear such a thing. I visited the Yardfest on the campus grounds, then migrated across the city for the newly established event MeccaFest where I did a cameo on stage with Paperboy The Prince and hung out with Elle Varner. I also got reacquainted with an old friend which turned to hanging with a new friend named Sevyn Streeter.

Here’s some pics from this weekend to check out! Thank you to Tyrone & Fly Carla.

I had a lot of fun out there while meeting some dope artists and having chicken & waffle flavored cupcakes (Seriously, those things were hittin! Shouts to Yaya’s Cakes).

NEW MUSIC: Redhead – The Glow

20140929-134105.jpg

After sharing the stage with Gillie Da Kid in Philly and being on the Art All Night stage at Carnegie Library with Deuce & Oeaux during CBC Weekend, I’ve decided to drop something new from the Exxxactly EP for the Internet.

20140929-133717.jpg

This song is called The Glow and it’s produced by a good friend Malik Hunter. He’s the bass player for the funk/soul band Nat Turner and is currently on tour with Aaron Abernathy.

Be sure to catch me in Brooklyn, NY this weekend at The Paper Box with Nitty Scott, Dice Raw, & Akrobatik! Tix are available on the Events page.

Years later, it all comes full circle. I appreciate you!!

NEW FREESTYLE: Redhead – Red Zone: The Ferguson Coverage

20140901-011413.jpg

I decided to drop a freestyle about the recent events of Ferguson, Missouri over one of my favorite beats – Rae Sremmurd’s No Flex Zone – after pretty much watching CNN and having numerous conversations with friends and colleagues about the whole situation. Some of my friends have went to Ferguson and told me stories while I was at protests for the cause here in Washington, DC. I don’t like the recent coverage as displayed by our media thus far, and I don’t like the complacency of the youth when it comes to these situations happening time and time again. I feel we need to have another conversation and further understand each other. Don’t you? I like to be safe and focused instead of lost and frustrated.

P.S. After I posted this freestyle on my Twitter page, a young man who suffers from Sickle Cell Anemia responded to me and we had a dope conversation. Check it out!

PHOTOS: Redhead Performs @HiphopYogaLive (8/21/2014)

20140825-162404.jpg

Recently, I visited the University of Maryland in College Park to perform at their student-run radio station WMUC. I decided to perform my song Talk White because I love performing it. After walking around the campus for an hour to find the place (sooooo huge!), I found the spot and helped set up with the staff before showtime.

What didn’t occur to me was that there was a contest involved with other awesome artists, and I was voted as the best performer. My prize was a slot to perform in Brooklyn, NY with acclaimed artist Nitty Scott, MC. I’m honored for this occasion and I’m gonna go so hard in the set up there. If you live in New York or visiting, go to the right side of my page for the show’s information and come see me live! Here’s some pics from the event.

RECAP VIDEO: Meridian Block Party Performance (8/16/2014)

This past weekend, I performed at the annual Meridian Block Party in Columbia Heights DC for the 3rd year in a row. This was somewhat of an interesting opportunity because I performed in a group the previous two years. On behalf of that, I’ve decided to set up a solo set where I would basically be on stage for 45 minutes long. Yes, you read this right: 45 MINUTES! I even broke the set in the middle to include one-half of the duo Deuce & Oeaux to perform “Bowflex” and let him do a freestyle for the crowd, which definitely had people hype. Shouts to the homies Flex Mathews, Aquil, Stacy, and Navid who I also saw up there.

Unfortunately, my cameraman couldn’t make it to tape any of the performance (wack), but I’ve included a little video that I taped myself from the event. It’s about a man that periodically kept coming to us and wanting to speak on the mic and finally getting his chance….to profess his love? You decide.

NEW VLOG: Conversations with @Ejax Pt. 2

20140813-175326.jpg

A couple of days ago, I was asked to do an interview for an upcoming television show based on the recurring LaZHour Show that I’ve been visiting a lot. As I was taping the pilot episode, my homegirl @Ejax came over and decided to do her segment of Conversations with me to discuss what she learned about business and relationships. It’s a small video, but here you go for your viewing pleasure!

P.S. For those who haven’t seen her 1st installment on my YouTube page, check it out below:

ARCHIVES: 2010 Interview with @JoyDaily on JoyDaily.TV w/ Redhead, Product, King Kan, & Carty-Yeah

joydailylogo

This interview is a throwback for the ages! It features the homies Product, King Kan, and Carty-Yeah. This night was actually hilarious and it defines how hard we individually “grind” in order to get to a point in life where we feel we’re successful. Joy Daily is a journalist that has interviewed countless artists and celebrities in the hiphop world and hosts an underground radio show in New York City. Product knew Joy from their days in high school and set up a time where himself, King Kan, and Carty would appear on the show as guests to talk about the DC hiphop scene. They invited me to come along with them due to their support of my work, and I’m very appreciative of that. We drove for nearly 4 hours in Product’s two-door Scion (5 people deep, mind you) to get there. Anyway, the show started at 10pm and we got kind of lost along the way on the Jersey turnpike (No GPS, just an IPhone navigation courtesy of Kan). We left the car somewhere on 9th avenue and ran as fast as we could to the studio. The guard initially didn’t want us to get in because the show was almost over, but they spared us, and Joy was gracious enough to extend her time to accommodate us despite another show starting right after hers. We appreciate that immensely! Moral of the story, plan routes out accordingly to places and beware of energy drinks that keep you up until 2PM the next day.
