NEW MUSIC: Redhead Appears on #DedicationMotivationVictory Mixtape

My guys DJ No Requests and DJ Nature Boi put together a great mixtape featuring local Hiphop artists showcasing their lyrical prowess and fire ass beats. My song “Too Much” is the last song on the mix. It’s a great tape to play in the car and rock out to. Check this for yourself at the bottom:

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.

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!!

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.

NEW SHOW: Redhead Performing at Sports Zone Elite w/ Deuce & Oeaux 7/26/14

If you missed the last show, no worries because this show is FREE for all ages when you RSVP. For more information, check out the Events section on the right side of this page. See you there!

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.
