YouTube du Jour: Katey Red

This is long overdue. Twelve years after bounce rapper Katey Red first began releasing classic songs like “Melpomene Block Party (Punk Under Pressure)” on seminal Take Fo’ Records, she’s finally put out her first official music video. The song, “Where da Melph At,” brings it back to her block party roots, even referencing the same glittery Jackson 5 sample that covered her first hit. The video similarly refuses to forget how far she’s come, accompanying her dancers as they drop it low in and around the Melph before emerging onto a red carpet to adoring, black-tie-only fans.
