Crossphazer.com got a chance to hang out with O'MEGA RED at a party bus last night in NYC. I had a great time and made some new friends along the way. The party was very official and the CD was top notch as well. We look forward to doing more things with OMEGA RED in the future. This is a very focused and confident artist I am sure the sky is the limit for this guy. - www.crossphazer.com


"Putting the pieces back together At 28, Rapper Omega Red has learned hard lessons. Now he's working hard to make it in music and life"

In addition, the 28-year-old artist’s latest mixtape, ‘‘The Red Tape Volume II,’’ is selling well online and on the streets. This exposure is bringing him more opportunities to perform. ‘‘The music gets out there,’’ he says, ‘‘and people just start hitting me up [for gigs].’’

But this success has been hard won. That might seem surprising — Grant happens to be the nephew of disco and soul legend Donna Summer. But the rapper has never been one to choose the easy path. - Boston Globe

Bio

As music artist, producer and arranger Omega Red, otherwise known as Robert Grant, has refined his blend of reality rap that has earned him critical acclaim and wide spread appeal. Omega Red has an infectious charisma on and off stage and is known for his dynamic live performances, whether he is backed by DJs or rock bands.

Omega Red started 2008 recording the single “Turn It Around” featuring Ray J. Following up with the success of this record, Omega Red has recorded two singles “She Luvs It” and “Endz” produced by Noel “Detail” Fisher of Konvict Muzik for Omega Red’s forthcoming album Red October. Also for the album, Omega Red is honored to have recorded with living legend KRS – One for the single “What’s The Odds Of This”, produced by Duane “Da Rock” Ramos.

Omega Red is a two time recipient of the New England Urban Music Awards Rap Artist of The Year (2006-2007). Omega Red is also a two time nominee for Lyricist of The Year by the Massachusetts Industry Committee Awards (2006-2007).

Omega Red’s music singles “Soul Clap”, “Magic” and “Forever Young” have been spun by radio and club DJ’s nation wide. He has also maintained his exposure through the release of two mix tapes, one of which was hosted by Boston’s JAMN 94.5’s DJ Roy Barboza. Omega Red has been featured in Source Magazine and was a top ten finalist in the Scion Next Up competition.

Growing up in the streets of Beantown, Omega Red had previously led a troubled life. Realizing that he did not want to be another statistic, Omega Red changed his environment and joined the U S Air Force. His service introduced him to many cultures, which ultimately influenced his perception of music and the world.

With his string of recent successes, Omega Red remains humble and keeps close to his roots. Omega Red mentors youth in Hip Hop culture through Boston’s Citizens Schools, an after school education collaborative.
