Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Redd Moody! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
Redd Moody: When I was in high school, I seen one of my partners Pakman Blaze do a talent show.He performed a song that he wrote and produced/ recorded right in his room at his home all his self! After he walked off stage the whole school went crazy! Back then,way I’m from there was no local rappers at our age with a recorded song out back then! So seeing the response from the way he rock that crowd made me say to myself,damn I can do that! Plus I had be writing songs in class all day and rapping in the lunch room with a few of my homies who listened to rap music. After leaving the talent show I went home and started working on a tape.I got the bass boosted tapes to record on with two tape players,one to play the beat and one to record my voice.It was over after that! Lol ,I never stop doin music since that day forth!
“Let your actions speak louder than your words!”
Being a rapper is so competitive and everyone is trying to discredit everything you say and do at every moment. Bruh, you have to learn how to separate yourself from negative people, who are not in-line with what you are trying to accomplish. You will be tested over and over but one thing your haters can’t take away from a artist is your work. Most of the time a artist gets the most criticism from people who can’t even write a rap or rhyme to save their life! The only way to shut those critics up is threw your actions! Once you prove them wrong, over and over without arguing or getting upset with them,you’ll usually win them over!
What about concerts? Do you play live?
