HIS NAME Red­foo ex­plains how his rap­per name came about ‘‘They used to call me fool­ish, like ‘You’re a damn fool’, so I thought I’d take that; and then I’ve got the red hair. My par­ents named me Ste­fan Gordy and MC Ste­fan Gordy didn’t sound too hard, and back then rap­per names had to be hard, so I named my­self Red­foo’’.
