Bio

Red aka The Rising Sun was born and spent his early childhood living all over parts of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Red was a die hard hip hop fanatic listening to everyone from Tupac Shakur, Wu Tang Clan, Pete Rock, and Kanye West. Those influences soon played a part in helping him develop the craft of writing rap music, making beats, and becoming an "Unsung Legend" in his own right. He met another local MC named Initial, and this led them to create demos, mixtapes, and albums releases:
"WhenThe Mirror Breaks", titled under Dark Reflektion and" In The Building" under B.T.W. "Blood Thicker Then Water". They won local talent shows and were one of the first rap acts to perform at MUSIKFEST, which is one of the biggest music events in the United States! He is currently an artist, producer, and CEO of the company Redlight Productions.
The company is comprised of brothers: Army Gunz and Tsunami; cousins: J. Sweetz, Loco P., and Bones; new artist
P. Vera, and long time friend, Initial.
In 2007, they released "Hood Ties" and then later, his solo album "Unsung Legend", to great raves and reviews. He earned 5 Lehigh Valley nominations in 2008, emerged victorious in a double elimination beat battle, released another group album "Redlight Chronicles" and released 2 mixtapes "Welcome 2 Redlight City Vol. 1" and "So Far So Close", which earned him 10 Lehigh Valley nominations.
Red has established himself as a force to be reckoned with, and isn't afraid to take risks and show why Allentown, PA is indeed, "Redlight City."
