Montgomery, AL ~ What do you get when you mix 2 parts New York lyricism and hustler mentality with a healthy shot of southern swag? Eldorado Red; a Harlem-raised, Alabama transplant whose been making quite a noise on the street music scene for the past several years. With a string of mixtapes to his credit and hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube for his numerous videos, Rado is readying his next offering, "Jeffe Music - The G5 Edition" for a summer release. Hosted by esteemed Atlanta radio personality, Greg Street, and with assistance from his popular radio single, "Fresh Cut ft. Rich Boy" expectations are "Jeffe Music" will be Rado's biggest release yet.
Rado's influences are not hard to miss. His delivery speaks to his childhood years in Harlem, growing up on that city's 80's rap legends, while his content is evidence of the effect that both the streets of New York and those of Montgomery, Alabama; where his parents sent him as a teen in an attempt to keep him out of the trouble he was so drawn to, have had on his life. The results are not pretty, either visually or sonically. And that's the point. As Rado will tell you, "My music is the backdrop to the pain, trials and tribulations of life as I know it. It's undiluted. Unadulterated. This is my theme music."
Stay tuned for more content and release date info.
