How did he get his name? People have called him Red his entire life. It was the name his street-hustling father went by. The “Cafe” would come later. “I hustled every kind of paraphernalia there is,” he says. “I never stick to one hustle to make a dollar. I continue to move strategically to make something out of nothing. So RED CAFE has always been where you could come to get anything you want.”

SHAKEDOWN producers include Trackmasters, ReEfa, Megahertz, Bink, Kutus In, etc
Entrepreneur RED CAFE is President and Co-Owner of SHAKEDOWN, a team of producers and DJs 
Why SHAKEDOWN? Red says, “When you locked up, every few weeks a shakedown happens. I named the album SHAKEDOWN, because whatever they don’t want to give me, I’m gonna take.”
