Best known for his extensive production work with Young Jeezy and Snoop Dogg's current single, Sexual Eruption, ATL producer-rapper Shawty Redd is about to show the world both talents on his solo debut Jekyll/Hyde. The first single, Drifter, features Redd (like Snoop in Eruption) trying to sing about a stripper that has him under a trance. While his lyrics may sound a little tired, guest rapper Bigg Gipp serves up the same refreshing Southern-fried style we've enjoyed since his days as a member of Goodie Mob. Although Drifter is a solid experimental introduction to the world of rap, Redd’s production talents clearly indicate he shouldn't quit his day job just yet.
