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

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.

NEW VIDEO: Redhead Auditions for BET Cypher 2014

For the 2014 Hot 16 contest sponsored by BET.com and Sprite, I’ve decided to join the contest to possibly be featured in the cypher series for the annual BET Hip Hop Awards. I’ve always wanted to be a part of that segment, but never got around to being involved. I made this video on the fly and recorded a verse over a track provided by DJ Drama. Hope you guys and the BET staff appreciate the work.

NEWS: Redhead To Appear on The Cristina Payne Show on 6/25/14

While still recording new music that I want to express to the world of my newest transitions, I’ve been asked by my super good friend Cristina Payne to appear on her Internet radio show (as well as co-hosts Troy Lamont and Rallo Boykins) to talk about my work in honor of Black Music Month. From there, I will speak about Exxxactly, upcoming shows, and all things connecting my brand. Don’t worry if you won’t be near a computer to listen to the show; I’ll have video coverage on deck for the occasion later in the evening.

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.
