Over the last few years King of the beats Records has forged a brotherhood with Red Apples Records. Co-Founder & Producer Ray West has been a great supporter of our work here at KOTB.
In April last year Ray took part in the KING OF THE BEATS challenge, featuring in the upcoming movie ‘Looking for the beat’. Rays got a very interesting approach to music production. Maintaining the values of what we call here Authentic New York Hip Hop, it has that gut feeling, but it has a sound that is uniquely his own.
Both Ray and his Red Apples Partner A.Gee have worked tirelessly over the last few years putting out 45 after 45, album after album. To be frank they really worked on their unique sound and approach, turning there vision into a reality. Something I know for a fact was not too well received to start with.
Many conversations me and A.Gee used to have. I was guilty of the above. They stuck to their guns, having real faith in their vision and worked it hard. Where now they have together alongside D.I.T.C M.C and in my opinion one the greatest song writers this genre ever produced O.C. put together this album Ray’s Cafe.
I was lucky to be involved in this project, putting together this trailer for Red Apples.
