Red is a New York native—born, raised, and making his life happen in NYC. From growing up in Harlem to meeting Sylvia (of the world famous Sylvia’s restaurant) as a kid to living in the Marcy Houses with a young Jay-Z and Memphis Bleek, Red’s life has been marked by experiences that only could have transpired in this city. And Red has done just about everything there is to do in this town, from working construction to driving buses and dealing drugs. Like all natives, he knows how to hustle. Now, he’s imparting the survival skills he’s collected throughout his New York life to his sons.
