REDCOATZ, Is Blue, ID (The Chief), Nateye (The General), Mordecai (The Abbot), and Chelly (The Captain). They come from “THE CRUX” a certain part of West Haven, CT. I met these brothers back in my Modern Control days around 2000. They were all childhood friends of the crew I rolled with, I wasn’t around during those days.. I myself grew up in various cities. There were times I would visit home and I’m sure we crossed paths at some points during my youth days in and out of CT. So when I did meet them its like we already knew each other. My crew used to record at Horizon Studio in West haven, CT. My introduction to these brothers took place at this studio, one that I still work out of to this day. Any given time we were at the studio, one of the Coats may pop up. Those were wild days. Two crews and long ass songs…you know how was. But what’s funny is, I never got to hear any of the song they work on as a crew. I knew they had songs but just never heard one. But as respectful crews, we were all into our own creative zones. Just as I mentioned in my other post, eventually I bounced and move to Atlanta. The whole time down there I did not stay in touch with any of the Redcoatz, but I knew they were there. When I returned in 2012, I began working at Horizon once again with just about anybody willing to make music the way I like to dive in it. In the spring of 2015, all the recording I was doing, every now and then a different but a familiar emcee would show up. This is when the first Redcoat brother would step in, it was Mordecai. I didn’t really remember him like I did the other Redcoat brothers from back in 2000. Mordy wasn’t a frequent face as the others were back then. So when we reacquainted ourselves I had to think for a sec. It all came back eventually tho. After Mordy made his reintroduction, Blue and Nateye soon followed, and then ID… Chelly would make his presence felt later down the line. Since I’ve been working with these brothers as a whole group, It’s like meeting them for the first time. After all this time. What I’ve learned about the brothers is that, they stay on the same page when it come to a song, they spit real life bars from the heart not just to make it sound good, but it does anyway, and they’re versatile in many ways on different types of beats..new style or classic. Its like Fresh Air!
