Hailing from the The Redland’s of Louisiana and Oklahoma, the name, The Redland, represents much more than a geographical local. It is a concept representing a new paradigm in music. A movement born out of the soil, from the root. The Redland is both a noun and an adjective; a state of mind and a word that describes music that is not just heard but felt-- In the soul. Wow! Are they Hip Hop? Yes.
Reminiscent of a time when the art form was real. A natural and honest reflection of the times, with prolific lyrical content, void of all the commercialization that characterizes and dilutes the sounds of today. The Redland is a movement. Ushering in the little heard voices of change. The voices and lyrics in this instance are Earvin and Kose, two former Morehouse College students who left school and responded to the pull, the desire, and a passion to create music that would fill the soul while keeping our heads bobbing.
Music that would have a lasting life. With an acute appreciation of the intellectual messages behind the imperial musical innovators and revolutionaries from years gone by, The Redland transverse through hip-hop boundaries so that on any given song all people from all walks of life can identify with what they are saying. Earvin Legend’s lyrics tend to be calculated and proper as if he was rapping to a room full of politicians, and Kose is a very poetic, deep thinker, so his lyrics tend to touch people from all walks of life
