Geto Boys founding member, DJ Ready Red has dies of an apparent heart attack on August 24 according to fellow group member, Willie D, who posted the news in a video via Instagram.
“DJ Ready Red died today of an apparent heart attack. Red was the Geto Boys’ first DJ and producer. He gave us our sound. He was responsible for most of the production on the early stuff and all of the production on my first album Controversy. To say he was a pioneer would be an understatement. Red was before his time. There’s a lot of producers today that are eating off of Red and don’t even know why their bellies are full.”
