Lyrics:Found 25 lyrics at BusyR.com Lyrics Archive.
Info:Now residing in Los Angeles, California RedCloud is born in Hawthorne, California of Mexican & Indian descent. His mother, too young to care for him, left him to be raised by another family. He grew up surrounded by drugs, gangs and violence.

Chosen
In RedCloud’s freshman year of high school he came to realize that life that his family and friends had chosen for themselves was not the life he wanted. He was “jumped out” of a gang that had long been the center of his life. At this point in life, RedCloud focused his time and energy on school, martial arts and hip hop. He graduated in 1996 from high school.

Battle rap
By the age of 17, RedCloud had honed his freestyle and battle rap skills to a level high enough to beat well respected competitors. In the next few years RedCloud made his mark and became a local favorite at elite hip hop clubs in the Los Angeles underground scene.

Syntax statement
On July 2nd, 2009 Syntax Records released the following statement: "Praise the Lord! Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in his commandments! …He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord. (Ps. 112:1,7)"

It is with deep sorrow that we write this letter concerning our friend and long-standing business partner RedCloud. After nearly a decade of working together, Syntax Records has decided to indefinitely suspend all promotion, support, and endorsement of RedCloud due to what we consider “Substance Abuse” [smoking weed]. This decision was not made hastily, rather, the biblical precedents were followed with much patience, grace, and longsuffering (this did not happen overnight).

It is out of necessity that we make this decision since our business principles and ethics are not superior to the biblical moral standards that all Christians are subject to. We hold the Bible as the final authority of what we believe and how we should live. We believe the Bible condemns substance abuse as a “deed of the flesh.” The “deeds of the flesh” flow from the desires of the flesh, and the flesh sets itself against the Spirit (Galatians 5:16-24).

In the spirit of Matthew 18:15-20, RedCloud, was confronted individually with the aim of restoration. After a reasonable period of time without repentance, RedCloud was confronted with witnesses to establish the charge.

In no way do we assume we are morally superior to RedCloud or anyone. But we don’t proclaim ourselves, rather, we proclaim Christ, and Christ is morally superior to all – “For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. (2 Cor. 4:5)”

It is our prayer and desire to see RedCloud, whom we love, reconciled to us, his family, and to his God, and that God honors our decision in this disciplinary yet restorative effort. In closing, this will be the only response we provide on this situation until a praise report is warranted in the future of RedCloud’s repentance, restoration, and reconciliation.

Track Evandalism
On April 1st, 2010 the rapper released the track "Evandalism" on Youtube.com. In the song RedCloud as the battle rapper who he is vented off his frustration about the christian hip hop community. The song would be taken down April 2nd. In an interview with DJ Will at DaSouth.com released on Friday, April 9th, 2010 the rapper explained his actions: "I was caught in a position to where [...] I had no recordlabel, I felt like everything was crumbling around me and I wrote the song in pure therapy. I recorded it as a therapy, maybe I should have kept it to myself.
[..] I'm a believer, I'm still a believer, I'm not a cold hearted killer to walk away from what I did. But I did something and it was something I had to have off my chest and I'm not going to try to justify what I did I could have done it a hundred million ways, but the way I did it was probably not the best way. And definitely not the way a christian would have done things. And for that I do apologize."

Awards
Native American-owned local record label, Upriza Records based out of Puyallup, Washington, hosted the First Annual West Coast American Indian Music Awards at the Muckleshoot White River Amphitheatre on May 3rd, 2008. At the ceremony RedCloud won the awards for "Hip-Hop Album of the Year", "Top of Class" and the "Album of the Year". All for RedCloud's album "Hawthorne's Most Wanted" released in 2007.

Video
RedCloud released his video:
- Tapatio: featuring Pigeon John on April 16, 2007.
