Redyfire developed an affinity for R&B and hip hop at an early age.

Redyfire cultivated his knack for the two genres entering talent shows in the fiercely-competitive and musically eclectic atmosphere of Chicago’s Southside neighborhood Englewood, Illinois.

“I’ve been influenced by early hip hop and R&B, and I’ve been a big music fan all of my life,” Redyfire explained. “Growing up in Chicago was pretty rough. I lost a lot of friends coming up but at the same time, I maintained my sanity.”

He was heavily influenced by the rhythmic and melodic sounds of popular R&B groups like Jodeci and solo acts such as Silk.

“When I started signing R&B, I just kind of fell in love with the music and decided to go full force with it and give the music a shot.”

At a very young age, Redyfire began collaborating with a group called 1200, and during his time with 1200, they gained a lot of local recognition by winning talent shows.

After the group’s disbandment, Daniels pursued his solo career as a recording artist becoming the talent and the act many are familiar with today.

The birth of a solo name came from accredited producer Issue-Ima-Beast (CassidyExchange Currency RecordsCash Money).

“I was sitting in the studio with Issue and I started listening to some songs when I heard something pertaining to fire and Issue asked me if I was ready?” Daniels said. “I told myself ‘that is what I am going to call myself, Redyfire. Its crazy how it sounds but that is how I came up with it, it was a spur of the moment thing.”

Though Redyfire has worked on musical production and been involved in several musical credits in the past 10 years, he has still never made his full-fledged retail product debut.

“I have never had an official retail product but now is my time. I am looking to technically make my debut,” Redyfire said. “There will be some pretty big artists on my album and it will contain something modern with a little bit of old school jams mixed up so I can change it up a little bit.”

Mixing a crafty and calculating entrepreneurial psyche with world class musical talent molded by a top-grade producer Issue-Ima-Beast is a combination of circumstances that will soon make Redyfire a household name.

“I am just trying to put my best foot forward and move,“ Redyfire said. “I’ve been ready to do this project for a while and when (Issue) called me, I put (the project) together and will see what happens.”
