Atlanta's "Golden Child" Tango Redd to Release Debut Album "THE CAMPAIGN"

Album Slated for Release in February 2006 on Warner Bros. Records

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 15, 2005 -- Known as Atlanta's "Golden Child" for his rap prowess and golden dreads, 19-year-old TANGO REDD busts out of Atlanta with his debut album "THE CAMPAIGN" (Vintage Sound Entertainment/Warner Bros. Records), slated to drop February 2006. His single, "Let's Cheat" (featuring Lloyd from The Inc.), is currently playing in clubs and at mix shows, and is scheduled to impact radio on November 15, 2005. The video is currently in rotation on BET and MTV Jams.

"Let's Cheat" is not Tango's first time taking his southern sound nationwide. Earlier this year, his single "Wobble and Shake It," produced by David Banner and featuring guest appearances by Bone Crusher and Banner, was an immediate favorite at radio stations across the country and was featured on BET's "106 & Park." A year after whetting fans' appetites, the full album, "THE CAMPAIGN," is due out on Warner Bros. Records, featuring the hit club jam.

"My music has southern feel with universal appeal," Tango says of his sound. "We got the clubs ready with the 'Wobble and Shake It' record, but with the album, I'll really be able to take my sound out of Atlanta and to the world."

"THE CAMPAIGN" pays homage to Tango's southern upbringing by lyrically serving up his life experiences growing up on Atlanta's rough streets over hit-worthy and club-ready tracks produced by the hottest producers in Atlanta. Producers lending a hand include Mr. Colli Park (Ying Yang Twins, Young Jeezy), DJ Toomp, Mixzo, Mr. DJ (Outkast), and the teamwork of Juicy J and DJ Paul. In addition to the collaboration with Lloyd, Bone Crusher, and David Banner, Tango also teams up with Blackjack, Sleepy Brown, Cruna, Homeboi, Three 6 Mafia and Jody Breeze on the album.

Tango Redd has just wrapped up performing on Vibe's 5th Annual YardFest tour of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities with Juelz Santana, Young Jeezy, Ghostface, Redman, as well as many others. He'll also be presenting at the first ever Dirty Awards presented by Radio One in Atlanta, which honors hip-hop's southern talent.

Stay tuned for much more to come because with "THE CAMPAIGN," Tango is letting everyone know there is a new artist in town, the kind of candidate that hip-hop fans nationwide will want to nominate.
