NEW MUSIC: Redhead – Steady Building

This is actually one of my favorite songs I’ve ever done. I plan to use this for the Exxxactly EP. I did this a few years ago while I was living in between New York and Maryland while dealing with a confused manager. I’m very partial to making music that’s anthemic and vibrant. I like inspirational and hard hitting music that I can motivate me as well as party to. Some of my friends look up to my words for some reason. This is just an audio format of what I tell people who lament to me their struggles.

RECAP: Redhead Performs at #ChillGrillHeal & Eugene Puryear on 10/25/2014

Over the weekend (10/25/2014), I performed at 2 events: One of which was on behalf of the non-profit Will Rap 4 Food for their Get Kids Movin’ event, an initiative that was spearheaded by Think Brown, Ink and Michelle Obama that’s geared to combat child obesity. They had it over at the Boulevard at the Capital Center in Largo, MD. We had a lot of fun out there. In the evening time, I did a very intimate set for Eugene Puryear and his colleagues as he’s running for DC Council At-Large. It was great times and I enjoyed meeting everyone on the campaign.

Below are the fliers and footage from these events.

NEWS: Redhead Visits @HowardU Homecoming in Shredders Apparel

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.

VIDEO RECAP: Redhead Performs @ Cakes & Kisses NYC w/ Nitty Scott, MC

Over the weekend of October 4th, 2014, I was invited to do a show for the Cakes & Kisses event to open for Nitty Scott, Akrobatik, and Dice Raw. It was located in the heart of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY. 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

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.

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.

NEW: Redhead Appears on @DJHeatDC & @JudahOnTheBEATS Mixtape

My record “Too Much” is currently featured on a mixtape put together by WPGC 95.5’s own DJ Heat and DMV producer Judah. The tape is called Summer’s Over and it features a variety of different artists from the DC metropolitan area. Haha @ Heat reminding me that I was mad at her for not putting me on a mixtape. Years later, it all comes full circle. I appreciate you!!

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

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

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:

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.
