Way back in January of this year, we briefly retold the story of Red the G-Funk Beatboxer and said that he had a chance to topple Animal Collective as the mayor of Jam City. We also said his single was going to be out in February. So, while both of those things might seem a little presumptuous in retrospect, we can at least now say with full confirmation that Red's first single is available on iTunes right now via HVW8, that it still jams hard, and that it has two incredibly good remixes by FADER favorites Dam Funk and CHOPS. Stones Throw is putting it out on 45 as well, and we'll throw the link up for that as soon as they do. Sales proceeds will go to getting Red back on his feet after some hard times, so buy several copies and give them away as tokens of your good taste.
