Atlanta-based Rapper Que Bo Gold Set to Release Debut Album - Underground Rapper/Entrepreneur Releases 'Red Clay' on September 25th -.

NEW YORK, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ --

Universal Records is set to release Red Clay, the debut album of 20-year-old, Southwest Atlanta, Georgia-based rapper Que Bo Gold, on Tuesday, September 25th.

In 1998, Que Bo Gold (Niqua Jones) started his own independent record label, NuNeq Records, and released a single by his sister ReRe called It Ain't No Thang which sold over 10,000 units. In addition to running the label, Que Bo Gold also branched out into artist management, and successfully negotiated a major label deal for the group Jim Crow, who Que Bo's brother Polo happened to be a member of. A chance meeting in a recording studio with the legendary George Clinton, inspired Que Bo Gold to embrace his own artistry, which he showcased by guest appearing on Rasheeda's single, "Do It," produced by ReRe.

Upon working with Rasheeda and with the encouragement of George Clinton, Que Bo Gold went straight into the studio and created his brainchild: a 15-track collection of pure down-home, countrified rap called Red Clay. With help from family members Polo and ReRe, Red Clay showcases a southern rap flow and energetic delivery, from the first banjo chord to the last, which is extremely prominent in the single "Lil Buddy." Besides the use of a banjo Que Bo also showed off his production skills by also incorporating riffs from George Thorogood's 1982 hit "Bad To The Bone."

Que Bo also shows his versatility by using a rock guitar solo on "Homeboy" a track that is the reworking of the traditional folk chant "Hambone," the hand clapping and thigh-slapping ditty. Making sure the album has something for everyone, Que Bo also takes it underground with a make you want to get up and dance song loaded with some serious bass called "Her." Other standout tracks include the Marvin Gaye-inspired "Shawty" and the title track "Red Clay" which is a rambunctious, fiery cut featuring funk pioneer George Clinton, and rappers Kool Ace and Mellow Dramatic crooning on the hook about what's really going on below the Mason-Dixon line.
