Bio

Red Rum was born on Mother’s Day of 1984 in Richmond, VA to Daphne Wyche. At the young age of five, Red Rum would rap on a karaoke machine. He and his cousins formed a family group in which they named "Da Andersons”. Red Rum became known for his voice, his delivery and his broad sense of humor. 
Born of a broken home, Red Rum's first love was sports. He played basketball and football for local teams with hopes that he would have a future in it. That was suddenly changed when Red Rum was expelled from school in the 9th grade for hustling drugs in the bathroom. Red Rum eventually left home at 15. He was in the streets living from house to house, hustling to pay for studio time. 
Finally, he joined with another rapper/ producer, Joe Skeet, and they took over the street scene. With Joe’s beats and Red's lyrics. they were able to collaborate with J Dub and they produced Red Rum’s first street anthem. “Let em Conversate.” Red Rum also began crushing other rappers on radio station's in battle rap which lead to the title "King of VA". He was gaining fans all over the state of Virginia at the age of 17. He had a strong street buzz performing at local clubs whenever the opportunity was present. But that was rapidly ended when someone was shot in the studio. J dub was convicted of the crime, and the studio was shut down. Red Rum was forced to go back to the streets with less hope. He was later arrested in a sting operation and sentenced to a year. 
While in lock up, Red Rum developed his own style and word play. He came home with not only a lesson learned, but also a drive to prove to the world that he was not just a rapper, but an artist. Although he had a dream, he had no backing upon his release, which resulted in a return to the streets. On July 15, 2007, his best friend was killed. That was a wake up call for Red Rum. 
Red Rum went to Atlanta to meet CEO, Buck Thomas who was working with artists Gorrilla Zoe at the time. Red Rum came to the table with his own hits already together, but there was one song that they could not pass up and that was “Looka Dere.” He became signed to the label, and a movement began. 
Red Rum is not just the future, he is the right now, striving to put his city on the map. Over the past year, he's been tested by the streets and the industry. He's been betrayed and let down by friends and business partners; and there are many who started in the beginning who won't finish in the ending. Red Rum hits are still keeping the streets flooded, the clubs "wanging", and the fan's multiplying. His experiences have matured him into strong work ethics, family values, and a hunger to not only give back to his community, but to the entire city. "2008 was great, but 2009 is mine", he says.
