Gravity Jones presents InfeRed’s 2009 mixtape “No Turn On Red.” MLKjr said, “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets, even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven played music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry.” Tony ‘InfeRed’ Graves feels his path is leading him to record and perform honest music. If it’s true that your soul should speak truest and loudest through your actions, midwest rapper InfeRed’s soul preaches through every line. In the vein of some of Hip-Hop’s most candid and ground breaking artists, Red works with a passion and dedication to his lyrics and each message they encompass. He is often likened to Jay-Z, Common, Royce Da 5’9, Elzhi, and, more recently, Wale. Download the mixtape, analyze the lyrics, scrutinize the songs, love it and hate it. Peace and much love.

no I D …no more albums

Brief interview snippet with No I.D. about the death of albums.

it just started…93, 94…before that there was no albums with 10 producers…it’s a new concept they came up with…they sound like audio compilations.

I actually think that’s a really good point. that music used to be (and SOME still is today) put together by one artist and their producer IN the studio, creating that cohesive feel to an album. i think that’s one of the biggest appeals to the music guys like Ryan Leslie, The Neptunes, and Kanye West make. It has a really consistent, entire feel to it because everything comes from themselves.
i disagree with him in that i don’t think it KILLED music, because i think a number of artists have become quite good at picking different producers to put together a whole album. BUT, there is no way it can match that feel of one producer, one artist (or even the producer being the artist as stated before). keep this in mind as you move forward in making music. become the complete artist you can become. master your craft, and music is your craft. dig?
peace, and bare butt love.


infe-news…no turn on red

The name of Infered’s new mixtape this summer will be “No Turn On Red”
Any ideas of a cover? It needs to have his face so people can associate the name with the face. It also should feature the street sign “No Turn On Red.”
Here is some pictures of the kinds of things to include.
