Until a few years ago, there was always questions of who would step up to the plate and become New York’s new hip hop leader. When these conversations were often held, Red Cafe came up in conversation. In 2009, Red Cafe signed with Bad Boy Records and it looked like he might really take his spot.
Instead, Red Cafe played a background role, while French Montana’s success shut down the constant conversations about New York’s struggles. Meanwhile, Red Cafe dealt with rumors of being dropped from Bad Boy Records. After ten years, a video game appearance, and a minor hit single, he still has no album out.
This morning, Red Cafe stopped by Hot 97 and talked to Ebro, Peter Rosenberg, and also Laura Stylez. He talked about the business he has going on outside of music and the continued struggles of New York hip hop. Red Cafe is definitely a voice to pay attention to out of the city.
