Where is the Red Baby?


What up ya'll, it's ya gurlll.
Apologies for the lack of posts this week, final exams and assignments have been running shit lately and unfortunately it will be like that for the next two weeks also.

Anyway, had a chance to flick through 2DB yesterday and I don't like to jack posts but this is an exception. Anyone who reads my blog on the regular, knows I am almost damn obsessed over everyone's favourite color..Blu. Just copped the new Johnson & Jonson album last week and even though I was rockin the bootlegged version (let's be real here!) a while back, having the physical copy is jus dope coz I just stare at the red baby on the cover all the time, lol. I think I'm not alone in my fascination with Johnny aka the red baby. Why is it red? Why is it called Johnny? and why is it about to walk off a fuckin building? are jus a few questions that I ask myself quite often. It's been fuckin with me that much, I messaged Blu on MySpace, asking what the hell is the red baby about and why is it face down. He said "ItsTheBabyIDidntHave" (think back to Good Life off Below the Heavens) so i dropped that topic right about then, lmfao! Moving on, the red baby was stolen at a San Francisco gig Blu & Mainframe rocked bout a month ago. I'll let them speak for themselves...

Blu & MainFrame ’s Johnson&Jonson Album has been widely noticed and talked about around the world as the CD w/ the “Red Baby” on it. Since the birth of the “Red Baby” a.k.a. “Johnny”, the Johnson’s have brought the iconic “Red Baby” everywhere w/ them including trips to the studio, multiple meetings w/ labels, a couple of liquor stores, and their parties to celebrate the release of their critically acclaimed Album.

A couple weeks ago Blu & the Johnson’s performed at 111 Minna, a club in San Francisco, and brought “Johnny” along for additional support. There are several photos from that night that prove that the “Red Baby” truly was in attendance. He was spotted hanging out w/ the homies, a bunch of Filipino girls and 1 white chick dancing to early 90s hip hop. Towards the end of the show MainFrame noticed and screamed on the mic “Yo, Where’s the “Red Baby” Yo” … at 1:43 a.m. the “Red Baby” was announced as a missing person.

Was the “Red Baby” a victim of a kidnapping? Did a another MC or crazed J&J fan snag the baby off stage? Or was this a conspiracy plotted by a group of young Filipino girls to black mail Blu & MainFrame for some shit.

In hoping that the “Red Baby” gets home safe Blu & MainFrame have posted this unreleased MP3 entitled “Baby Don’t Leave Me Now” to help lure any information pertaining to the missing “Red Baby”. If you have any info email 1_800_JOHNSON@gmail.com.

And here is the track: Johnson & Jonson- Baby Don'te Leave Me Now

Also one of my favourite (yeah, we write British English down here, lol) tracks off J & J:Johnson & Jonson- Long Time Gone
