Former DJ and producer of the iconic rap group Geto Boys’, Ready Red has passed away. Ready Red died in his Cherry Hill, New Jersey home from an apparent heart attack. Willie D paid his respects in a video statement:
“Bad news. DJ Ready Red died today of an apparent heart attack. Red was the Geto Boys’ first DJ and producer. He gave us our sound. He was responsible for most of the production on the early stuff and all of the production on my first album Controversy. To say he was a pioneer would be an understatement. Red was before his time. There’s a lot of producers today that are eating off of Red and don’t even know why their bellies are full.”
DJ Ready Red first join the group back in 1986.
