Are you Ready for Reddy?
Hey Soju fam,
In anticipation for this weekend's Soju Sunday I thought I would give you a little information about the guest performer Reddy. This post has all the things you need to know in preparation of this Sunday's show.
Name: Kim Hong-Woo (better known by his stage name "Reddy")
D.O.B: November 11, 1985
Debut date: September 27, 2011
Company: Hi-Lite Records (With rappers G2 and...)
Latest release: Turkey (feat. Year of the OX)
Reddy is best known for his appearance on MNET program Show Me the Money (SMTM) where he made it to the semi finals. Before his appearance on SMTM and becoming a household name in the world of K-hip hop, he debuted in 2011 with the single Capt. Reddy. Later on Reddy joined Hi-Lite Records because "Paloalto Hyung called me one day to work with him" and thus his relationship with the company began. He has also mentioned that his favourite collaboration is his song with Jay Park.
Now that we've given you a little bit of a history lesson on Reddy, it's time to get well acquainted with the rapper. We have to start by getting to know his music a little better. I have compiled four of my favourite Reddy songs and why I love them.
1. Ocean View
This song gives such nice and relaxed vibes and that's why I love it.
2. Peach ft Suran
This one is my personal favourite Reddy song because of the calm vocals and Suran is my queen!
3. "Think" (생각해) ft Jay Park
Reddy + Jay Park = Magic.
4. Break Bread by Reddy and fellow label mates Sway D, Paloalto, YunB, G2, Huckleberry P & Camo Starr - Break Bread
What you need to watch before Sunday night
These are some of my recommendations for some performances of his to watch so that you know what's coming on Sunday night. Here is what to expect:
1. Wanted ft C jamm
2. Like This ft Bobby
3. Do My Thing ft Cheetah and Paloalto
4. This last one is a video from Hi-Lite Record's YouTube channel at the 'universe' concert
I hope this gets you excited about the performance on Sunday and be sure to check out his latest album Telescope.
