Biography

Formerly The Rez Rydaz, R.E.D.D consists of two members, Hunter and Big Worm have been making music together for 6 years. Both born and raised on the Akwesasne Mohawk Rezervation, nuzzled along the border of Canada and the U.S.A, they have nurtured a sound and vibe as original and large as their surroundings.

Hunter the younger of the two is the more quiet and reserved of the two, choosing to let the music speak for itself. He has a knack for catchy hooks and a commanding voice that fills up a room. Growing up around older people you think he was much older than his mid-twenties. He is able to take you places with words, a true story teller for our generation.

Big Worm is the older and more social of the two. Always smiling and joking around. The only thing larger than his 500 pound frame is his heart, as he is always the first to give and the last to take. Worms voice is huge and deep, his style is a throwback to amore classic time of rap, which in this day is refreshing in comparison to a lot of what is “popular” in urban music.

All though they have only released one mix tape in 2010, they have kept consistent by releasing a plethora of singles that has helped them to acquire a loyal following that is building exponentially every day.

So far everything has been a grassroots movement, with two songs currently in rotation on I Tunes “I Swear” and “Redbone” collectively selling more than 3000 downloads and the video for “I Swear” approaching 4000 views on you tube as of March 1, 2013.

R.E.D.D has also been creating a buzz by gaining a reputation for a high energy live performance. It is on stage that these two individuals really come together giving spectators their monies worth and then some. R.E.D.D has already graced the stage with the likes of George Thoroughgood, Joe Buddens, Joell Ortiz, Royce da 5’9, Crooked I, Belly, Choclair, Saukrateez, Camoflauge, Magnum 357, Peter Jackson and more. Having these kind of high profile performances this early in their career has helped them to become seasoned and professional and they have been able to apply what they have learnt from these industry veterans.

April 1, 2013 marks the release date of R.E.D.D’S first full length release “The Rez Rydaz L.P”. The first single and video “I Swear” is already in rotation and for sale and the second single and video “Boss Life” is set for release in March 2013. The third single and video “One Day” features apcma nominees Rellik and Nathan Cunningham and is a positive message of liberation for our families, children and people.

Together R.E.D.D bring a wall of sound, struggle, wisdom and hunger. Relatively new to the industry they are just starting to move away from “local” status and have nowhere to go but up. With a newly inked production and management deal with Reel Audio Media and work in and outside of the native community, R.E.D.D is a heartbeat away from being a household name.
