Digital entertainment company You42 continues to grow its music Network lineup through a partnership with hip-hop artist DJ Infa Red. A member of the Heavy Hitters, known as “The world’s most elite DJ crew,” Infa Red is giving fans access to new and exclusive music along with an inside glimpse into the world of professional DJs.
“The Heavy Hitters represent the greatest, most prolific DJs on the planet,” said DJ Infa Red. “Not only are we bringing new music and artists, we’re also bringing years of experience—expertise gained through hundreds of shows and countless hours spent honing and exploring our craft. That’s what puts this Network over the top.”
Hailing from Brockton, Mass., Infa Red first learned to DJ in Brooklyn, N.Y. at the age of 15. After listening to pioneers like DJ Red Alert, Funkmaster Flex, and DJ Enuff, Infa Red set out to become a professional DJ. His breakout year was 2007, when he landed a position at Orlando’s #1 Hip Hop Radio Station Power 95.3. He also had a big year in 2012 when he was selected out of thousands of DJs to appear on VH1’s “Master of the Mix.” Throughout his career he has played at shows with renowned artists like 50 Cent, Biz Markie, T.I., NAS, DJ Khaled, Cardi B, and many more.
“DJ Infa Red is an artist who combines raw talent with a deep knowledge of the music industry,” said You42 President Ashley Johnson. “Coming from the Heavy Hitters, he’s giving fans access to the best in hip-hop music and culture, past, present, and future.”
In addition to music, the Heavy Hitters Network will feature interviews with both legendary and up-and-coming DJs, executives, influencers, Tik-Tok stars, and anyone else who is out there shaping the culture. Highlights include the podcast “The Code,” where Infa Red sits down with artists like Jadakiss and Fabolous to talk about everything from music and fashion to hip-hop history and travel.
“On my podcast, I’m able to just be myself, raw and uncut,” added Infa Red. “That’s what fans can expect on the Heavy Hitters Network—amazing music with real talk and absolutely no B.S.”
