Before 2013 officially closes its curtain, handing in a final late pass can’t hurt.
Gotty forwarded info on CharlieRED with a simple note saying the music was worth checking out and reminded him of a certain crooner from years past. Anyone who knows G is that he’s a man of few words (except when he’s talking shoes, Syracuse basketball, Tupac and Boosie) and being that our musical interests normally align to the tee (Future being the exception), his co-sign holds weight in my neck of the woods.
To make a long story much, much shorter, RED’s “GreenGREED” (say that fast five times) was a groovy mixture of rock and soul with an unique dosage of introspection. The song and video in particular wax poetics on the almighty dollar and the obsession with it that has come to run every single aspect of this country from Capitol Hill to the housing projects in the inner city of a hood near you.
