is a native of South Miami. You know, that little corner of Dade County between the University of Miami campus and Dadeland Mall. He's been a mainstay in Miami's diverse hip-hop scene for years and is one of the names that you will hopefully hear a lot more of in the coming months.
The proof is in his new song, "Red Bottoms," produced by Atlanta DJ and hip-hop heavyweight Don Cannon. It's the first single off of Ghostwridah's upcoming album,
In Love With My Future. The track starts off with a percussion-heavy beat, topped with the all-too-famous "Like Louboutins with the red bottoms, you gotta have em" vocal sample from Jay-Z's 2006 sleeper hit "I Know." As you know may or may not know, Louboutin heels are easily recognizable by their trademark red bottoms. And this is a song that serves as a tribute to them and the girls that will do anything for them.
You'd think this song would take turn into a three-minute presentation of flashiness and bragging rights about shows. But the song, refreshingly, takes the opposite route: It recounts the tale of a girl who puts material things on a pedestal, at the expense of the more important things in life. Here's a sampling of the lyrics:
Nightlife living, walk like Trina
Credit card suffering, somebody call FEMA
Just a young dreamer, infatuated with "fly"
We all got a vice and hers is red bottoms
