When I moved to New York Red Cafe was one of the more talked-about artists out at the time. Recently aligning himself with Diddy/Puffy/Puff Daddy/Puffa-Diddy Diddy Puff Fun-Size’s Bad Boy Records, his appropriately-titled single “Hottest In Da Hood” had those whispers of yet another Bad Boy comeback.
