KC Redd (1999)

Kenner, Louisiana native KC Redd left an indelible mark on the vibrant musical culture of the South, particularly in the realm of Bounce Music. The South, known for its unique musical identity, witnessed cities like New Orleans carving their own cultural niche, and Bounce Music emerged as a defining element.

Before the dominance of hardcore gangsta themes, Bounce Music took the spotlight, serving as a foundational and influential genre. The independent label Take Fo Records played a pivotal role, setting the stage for subsequent giants like Cash Money Records and No Limit Records. Bounce Music injected a sense of fun into the music scene, with its distinctive dances, twerking, block parties, and serving as the soundtrack for lively gatherings.


Among the contributors to the Bounce Music movement was KC Redd, acknowledged as a legend today for her significant contributions. Joining the label in the late '90s, she released her album "It's A G Thang" in 1999, featuring appearances by label mate and Bounce Music luminary DJ Jubilee. KC Redd continued to release music into the 2000s until Hurricane Katrina struck, compelling her to relocate to Houston. Tragically, she lost her life in July 2006.

One standout moment from KC Redd's career is her reinterpretation of Juvenile's "HA," where she added her unique twist and titled it "NAH."

REST IN PEACE.
