What is your name?
Stephen Redhead aka Redhead.
Where are you from?
Capitol Heights, MD.
How did you get the name?
It's my real name and my father loves me.
How would you describe your entertainment for the public audience if they have never seen you before?
I'm a rapper that does many shows. It's a mixture of comedic wordplay and in depth storytelling.
Thinking back to early childhood, what was your first experience with music for the first time like? What song do you remember most as a child?
I was always into movies and films, so my first introduction to buying a musical album was for movie soundtracks. I bought the "Space Jam" and "Men In Black" soundtracks, then followed up on the artists that were featured on them. The biggest song I remember was Des'ree "You Gotta Be". My sister put me on to it at the time it was out, and it was everywhere. I cringe now when I hear it, but it's definitely still in my consciousness.
As a child growing up, music surrounds us; what type of music did you hear the most back then? How does is differ from what you listen to now?
As I grew up in the Washington, DC area, I've heard mostly the native go-go music and southern hiphop. I would hear "Scenario" by Rare Essence and records by No Limit, Cash Money, and Three Six Mafia. That sound gradually led me to a lot of the Ruff Ryders catalogue from DMX to Eve to The Lox, then to A Tribe Called Quest and Wu-Tang Clan. The difference between then and now is not so much because you can hear the same type of music in 2013, but it's more underground. You would have to search for it to catch a particular artist doing it. It's YouTube now instead of The Box. Now I don't have to get yelled at for using a 1-900 number.
If you could describe your style of music in one word, what would it be and why?
It would be "Damn" because that's usually the response I get when people first hear me. That response can be either positive or negative. I want to give you a feeling and perspective that you wouldn't regularly hear from an artist, especially a rapper. It's like when you first see somebody and you don't know what to expect from them, then they turn around surprise you. That's my schtick and I love using that to my advantage.
Are you currently signed? Or, are you strictly independent at this point in time?
I am currently under the label SFE (Super Femina Entertainment). We're brand new and on our way.
What projects do you have in the works?
I'm working on an EP titled "Exactly" that I hope to have done by the end of the year. I'm also working on a debut group project with The FarEXP called "The UnExperiment" which will be out very soon.
What made you first realize you wanted to pursue a career in music?
I went through various situations both in college and after graduation. They all stemmed from the idea that I had a talent that I needed to pursue, but I wasn't too sure about it. Then as I seen more people gravitate towards me because of my energy and messages, I've decided to keep it going so I could touch more listeners and let them know about the "Steady Building" mentality.
