jermaine denny is the name..but people have called him RED his whole life. it was the name his street-hustling father went by. it’s what his mother calls him to this day. The CAFE’ would come later.”i hustle to make a dollar, i’m a one stop shop. Everthing is for sale, therfore everyday is payday”. REDCAFE was & still is where you can come to get your fix. the difference now is, It’s an audio fix.
Being a carribean hotbed flatbush did nothing to nurture a hip-hop jones. Red, who is of Guyanese decent, felll to the siren song of the streets. at about 13 tears old, he was shot in the neck when he refused to be robbed of his gold ring. later he was engulfed deeper into the darkness of the new york streets & ended up being away for a few years.
From the group, The Franchise which counted both Red and Jamal Woolard (Gravy) as members, to Loud Records, to Violator in the early days which is how it got started for Red. Then came Arista records where Red formed his relationship with Trackmasters to produce hits like ‘May I’ and ‘Virus’ as well landed him with tracks on the EA Sports Madden and NBA Live titles he was well on his way. But it was from the adversity faced when Arista folded right before Red’s release date his resourceful means of survival kicked in and carried him to Capitol with music legend Mack 10’s Hoo Bangin label. That spawned the hit ‘Bling Bloaw’ with Fabolous.
Red Café is known throughout the industry as one of its most successful ghostwriters. He has written for a lot of your favorite rappers including the hit ‘Pass the Courvoisier’. “Now I’m writin my own hits” Red comments, which has led us to this point with Red Café’s debut album dropping in 2010 on Shakedown/Konvict-Bad Boy/Interscope.
