Biography

Red Cafe (born Jermaine Denny on September 19, 1976), born to Afro-Guyanese parents, is an American rapper signed to Rapper Akon’s Konvict Muzik, Diddy’s Bad Boy Records and DJ Clue’s Desert Storm.

Red Café is a Flatbush, Brooklyn rapper of Afro-Guyanese descent. He has been called “Red” all his life, a nickname inherited from his father. He often refers to himself simply as “R” on songs he appears on by saying “It’s R.” Red Cafe began his career in a group called Da Franchise (or as often referred to Franchise) with Bed-Stuy artist Gravy and Flatbush rapper Q Da Kid appeared on many Whoo Kid and Kay Slay mixtapes under Franchise. Due to disagreements between the three, they split up and went separate ways. In early 2006, Red Cafe was to release his first major-label debut I Got a Story to Tell, on Capitol Records in conjunction with Mack 10’s Hoo Bangin’ imprint, set to include singles “Bling Blao” featuring Fabolous and “Diddy Bop”. Also believed to be on that album were his songs that received radio play “Jeep Shit”, which features Fabolous & Paul Wall and the remix of “Diddy Bop” which features Fabolous, Kardinal Offishall, Coco Chanel and Curren$y. However this never eventuated. Red Cafe has also contributed to the Coach Carter soundtrack. He has also ghostwritten for many popular rappers over the years. As an underground rapper, his work is not internationally recognized, though he has been rapping on the circuit since the late 1990s.Red Cafe also made a cameo appearance in the biopic “NOTORIOUS” playing primo in which he battled biggie at the age of 17.This battle was based on a real battle biggie and a fellow Brooklyn rapper had and includes the same bar for bar lines biggie used in the movie.
