NEWS: QSJ Radio’s 15 Minute Redhead Set (Video)

I came across the work of QSJ Radio and sent them one song to play on their show. That one song made this DJ from New Jersey to search for more songs and include video to play. Kind of amazing how I could make this total stranger bring the energy like this.

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

SHOW ANNOUNCEMENT: Redhead & @MHtheVerb at Velvet Lounge on May 9th, 2015

My peoples MH The Verb decided to have another show at Velvet Lounge in DC as he travels throughout Brooklyn. Last time we had a show together, it was pretty fun. Definitely wouldn’t pass this opportunity up.  Stop by for some laughs and good ol fashioned funk, rock, and hiphop. It costs $8 and my 30 min set is at 10pm sharp, so be smart about it and come on time!

Also, if you’re down with the JamCamp Festival, it will be moved to June 5th to 7th. Be sure to check out more details at their website.

NEWS: Redhead Appears on #AllWeGotDC on Blis.FM (1/31/2015)

After meeting with Frantasy at a particular show in uptown Washington, D.C., I secured a slot to be interviewed for my upcoming project “Exxxactly“. It’s been often delayed but so far, the music is getting strong. I came to the show to premier new music, including an unfinished song I recorded the night before.

Take a listen to the show at this link:

Here’s some pictures from my time there. Much love to my folks King Kan, Uncle Smacks, Jermaine Montana, and AyeYoSmiley who were also in the studio.

NEW MUSIC: The FarEXP (feat. Redhead) – The Expansion (Album)

Before I post this album, I have to briefly explain its context. Back in 2012 after the release of my mixtape The Schemata, I was approached to join a hiphop group called The FarEXP. I accepted the offer based on the inclusion of two members whom I’ve known for many years, even though I wasn’t aware of the music nor how they operate. After several recording sessions coupled with endless amount of fights & bickering, I quit the group on my own accord at the top of 2014 and decided to let them do what they wanted to do for the sake of the album. If you’re a fan of underground boom-bap rap music reminiscent of Slum Village & Souls of Mischief, you can take a listen. Production on this album is from UnOwn, Kev Brown, & Oddisee.

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.

VIDEO RECAP: Redhead Previews New Music at #PlaylistTuesdays

Here is a video recap of my appearance at #PlaylistTuesdays where I premiered music from my upcoming Exxxactly project. These songs include “Steady Building”, “Evacuate”, and of course “Too Much”. I had a pretty cool time at this event. Shouts to the other artists that I saw there such as Laelo, Darren Hannibal, Phil Ade, Phil Da Phuture, and Visto.

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.
