This giveaway has ended. Thanks to Code Red and to all who entered. Winners are being notified by email.
To celebrate the beginning of summer and in conjunction with the hip-hop group out of Louisville Kentucky, Code Red’s release of their first single ‘Summer Jam’ off their upcoming album ‘All Aboard’; we are pleased to offer a ‘Hip-Hop Summer Jam Giveaway’.
The hip-hop group out of Louisville Kentucky Code Red has the motto “Not Confined, Not Defined”, so maybe I should not ‘define’ them as a hip-hop group, rappers or as rap artists, but I can surely define them as one of the freshest sounds I have had the pleasure to hear lately.
We receive a lot of music; a lot of it is from those who claim to be ‘the big thing on the hip-hop scene.’
Code Red didn’t come saying they were the ‘next big thing’; they let their music do their ‘talking’ for them, and if they are not the next big thing on the hip-hop scene - they definitely will let their presences be known.
The debut album from Code Red is called ‘All Aboard’ on Label X, Toucan Cove, Universal.
Thanks to Code Red and Toucan Cove, Universal, we are pleased to offer the Code Red album ‘All Aboard’ as our ‘Hip-Hop Summer Jam Giveaway’.
This is truly an album and these guys are truly a group you do not want to over look.
The single ‘Summer Jam’ is just a kicking track. Makes you feel good and makes you bop your head; why not it’s summer.
A unique blend of beats and genres makes Code Red worth a closer look. Blending old school with new school with a touch of Reggae, they are unique individuals who, as a group, interact well and their music is sure to be embraced.
The group is made up of four members. A very creative rap MC El One Wise, a Jamaican Reggae artist Junior Dread, lyricist Manfred and producer Watz.
The state of Kentucky is not known for its large pool of hip-hop and rap artists. When I think of Kentucky I have many beautiful memories, as I use to live there; but the hip-hop scene was not one of the big memories I have of Kentucky: until now.
If not for the ‘air play schedules’ of radio stations who ‘drill’ certain tracks and names into our heads, even if the music falls short of real hip-hop - so we think a certain artist is the ‘cream of the crop’, Code Red could be and is a real contender for major hip-hop play and positioning. The freshness of the sound and the diverse make up of the group is pure hip-hop.
They have ‘warmed’ the stage for major hip-hop and rap artists like 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes, T.I., Wyclef Jean, Nappy Roots, Mystical, Trey Songz, Marques Houston, and many more.
It is time to look beyond the ‘majors’ to get that true hip-hop and rap gratification back into the music, and Code Red can deliver.
This album shows that there is an immense pool of music out there by many talented artists and we do not have to be on the ‘limited diet’ that the majors can afford to saturate us with and make us believe that is what we want.
Code Red’s CD ‘All Aboard’ is the pure fulfillment of what the music industry has been lacking lately - talent.
This is one hip-hop CD that has it all. There are club tracks, serious insightful tracks, laid back tracks and it is all backed up with steady tight production.
The giveaway will end July 20th. We are so pleased to be able to offer this album as a giveaway. This is truly one of the hottest albums that will be released this summer.
Watch and listen as Summer Jams by Code Red hits the air waves and watch for the album.
