NEWS: Foot Locker Adds ‘Red Carpet’ to Official Playlist for Stores Nationwide

This is a big surprise to me. I was calling up a friend to talk about some things, and he texts me a series of videos from a Foot Locker store in Wheaton, MD. The store was playing my record “Red Carpet” through their official curated playlists. It turns out that whoever works for Foot Locker’s headquarters found the song and added it for stores nationwide. I’m beyond honored and happy about this. Thanks to Foot Locker for checking me out. 

Here’s one of the videos that my friend sent me:

NEWS: Redhead Performs @ #FreshProduce in Washington DC (6/21/17)

Another appearance at the #FreshProduce showcase. I decided to just mingle with the crowd and share some bars with the producers that came with their new tracks. Not much footage to share, but a fan shared this small Instagram clip. Shouts to the folks at Vendetta for always showing love.

NEW MUSIC: The Delegation – Daltz 2 feat. Paperboy, Ardamus, Brain Rapp, Redhead, & Omega

As promised, my peoples put out their newest mixtape called House Party this week. This is the track that I’m featured on which I must say has a really dope verse by myself. We had a good time doing this song. The video should be out pretty soon for this one as well. Definitely get into this before then.

The lineup goes as follows:

1. Paperboy
2. Ardamus
3. Brain Rapp
4. Redhead
5. Juda (of The Delegation)
6. Omega

P.S.: Shouts to Listen Vision Studios for once again supporting my music and to University of Maryland College Park for supporting “Too Much” on their FM radio station.

NEW MUSIC: Trap Rappers Are Stupid (Verse)

I got asked to do a song with my really good friends Da Cov. I’ve known these guys for years and they make hiphop tracks for fun and I ALWAYS wanted to be included in these. Years later, I received a text from the homie Jason to get down for one. I consider this verse as just payback for all the times I’ve been denied, as well as my growing disdain for all these new rappers coming out that wanna ‘turn up’ so damn much and have no finesse in writing lyrics. Well, guess I gotta show them right? Cool. Whatever.

NEWS: Redhead interviews on The In Deep Show

Over the weekend, I got the chance to interview with a fresh new podcast show called The In Deep Show. They have a segment on the show called Thee Un where they feature undiscovered musicians and showcase their work and talents. I was out in downtown Washington, D.C. to support my friend King Kan’s event, so we did the interview via Skype live on the street amongst homeless people and drunken pedestrians. That’s the life I chose!

Check out this interview where I play some music and talk about my background with Drew & Brian. Shoutout to Esther who sealed the deal!

#PlaylistTuesdays @ BigPlay (College Park)

Redhead will preview new music from his upcoming Exxxactly project for the latest edition of #PlaylistTuesdays, courtesy of Dirt 2 Gold and 368 Music Group.

NEW MUSIC: Redhead – Am I Thirsty? Pt. 1

This is a particular song that I’ve done while working on my Exxxactly project. It’s come to my attention through several conversations with friends and family that a lot of relationships are being started in social media outlets these days. This is all fine and everything, but most times, you would have to be careful in how you approach someone because you can easily be labeled as overzealous or “thirsty”. In this Panama Jackson produced song that I decided to drop in light of Valentine’s Day approaching, I decided to hit on this topic a bit. Part 2 of this song is on my project where it gets a little bit more indepth and bizarre. Enjoy this and spread to your peoples!!

VIDEO: Redhead Visits Club Plug Radio (1/18/14)

This is a video recap of an interview that I did with Club Plug Radio. For this particular segment, I was interviewed by hiphop artist Adversary, who was previously known for freestyle competitions on 106 & Park. In this clip, I break down what my style is like and my influences growing up in Maryland. Shouts to DJ Freaky Ty for the opportunity and the staff for allowing me to come over and share my music with their audience.

VIDEO: Redhead performs with Watermelon @ Velvet Lounge (1/11/14)

On Saturday, January 11th, 2014, I was invited to do a cameo performance at Velvet Lounge with one of my favorite indie funk rock bands Watermelon. They’re from the Washington DC area and have recently relocated to New York. During their stops back home, they were accompanied by rappers Kwame Darko and MH The Verb, who were also present as we performed an impromptu version of Nas’ classic NY State of Mind. My good friend Flex Mathews was also in attendance.

Expect more work with myself and Watermelon as the future unfolds with brand new music for the 2014 year. Follow us on twitter @redheadpg and @Watermelonband.

VIDEO RECAP: The FarEXP appears on The LaZ Hour (1/1/2014)

As I’ve stated before in previous posts on this site, the album debut of The FarEXP titled The Expansion would be available in this new year of 2014. On an effort to promote this project, I’ve brought the members to The LaZ Hour to speak a little bit about the album and all banter in between. Of course, at the end of every segment, there is a freestyle cypher at the end. Thanks to Miguel for producing this video, DJ Laz-Eye, Dark Prince, and the rest of the staff for allowing us to appear for the program. Here is a short clip of the appearance for those who haven’t seen it.
