As Red Cafe prepares for his official album, Shakedown, to be released this spring on Bad Boy Records, the Brooklyn resident is giving fans a free treat in the form of Hell’s Kitchen first.
The mixtape, hosted by DJ Whoo Kidd and DJ Ill Will, is about as close to an album as anything Red has released to date. The always entertaining verses from Red come laced with banging beats and great features from some of the game’s hottest artists.
Last night at Daddy’s House studio in New York City, Red held a listening party for Hell’s Kitchen, where a ton of friends, supporters, bloggers, and fans, came out to support Mr. What Else and his new project.
Before the listening event started Red addressed the crowd: “First of all I want to thank everybody for coming out tonight and supporting the music and what we do here in New York City and supporting the things we love about this Hip-Hop culture that we married to.”
In attendance were mixtape host DJ Whoo Kid, Bad Boy Records President Harve Pierre, rappers Uncle Murda, Fred Da Godson, and Fat Trel, who appears on the mix tape’s fifth track, “Up In Here.”
Hell’s Kitchen features verses and hooks from the likes of Diddy, Wale, 2 Chainz, French Montana, Ray Lavender, Fabolous, J. Cole, A-Game, Cory Gunz, Wacka Flocka, Trey Songz, Yo Gotti, and Meek Mill.
