Video: Red the Homeless G-Funk Beatboxer

January 23, 2009


This is quite possibly going to unseat Animal Collective as our favorite music of 2009 so far. Red, a homeless gentleman in Los Angeles, showed up behind the HVW8 gallery late last year and proceeded to beatbox/sing his original composition "I Should Tell Your Mama On You," which sounds like Ginuwine filtered through Roger Troutman and performed by a 90-year-old barbershop singer. It is amazing. Red is now recording this song for a proper February single with HVW8's help and recently gave a video update with another new song called "Ghost Ride The Hips." Watch it after the jump and follow Red's story on the HVW8 blog. (via Smoking Section)
