I was reached out to via email from a rapper coming all the way from Nigeria by way of Indianapolis! It’s not about me though. It’s about hip-hop being GLOBAL and getting some fresh new rhymes from a new face and voice. So I got a video and a few joints from rapper ReDkAd! Read up about him and then check out his joints!
