Terry “Scooda Red” Davis is from Champaign, IL. He has been writing and rhyming since the mid 80’s. Back then it wasn’t all about battling, it was about skills and being fresh.Around the early 90’s, he was featured on a local jazz artist’s CD from the South by Tina Diamond. Soon after, Scooda decided to move back to the “Big O”, (Omaha, NE) where he’d been living on and off since 1989, and that’s where the journey began. It all started when Scooda ran into C. J., a. k. a., Charles J. Cooke, whom happened to be the son of the late but great Same Cooke. They went into the studio and put a song together and that’s where it stayed; Pastel Studio. After that, Scooda was introduced to the producer DJ Suicide. That’s where he found a home with Crossphade Muzic.By 1997, he was featured on a compilation called “Behind Enemy Lines.” They sold over 3,000 copies and got press in many different areas. So as the year 2000 approached, the rap scene was exploding and everyone was trying to rhyme with the same old sound. So Scooda decided to take some time off to develop something fresh and completely different.In 2005, Scooda ran into a group of talented kids called “West of Reality.” When they
collaborated, it was like magic! They opened up for Lucky Boys Confusion, and Gavin Degraw at Rockhurst University in Kansas City in 2005, as well as, for local and indie groups. They’ve also performed in local venues such as The Rock, the legendary Sokol Underground and the old school Ranch Bowl, just to name a few! Scooda has also done a little acting for a local T.V. show called “Drop Outz” on an Omaha local channel performing comedy skits. Scooda Red has worked extremely hard and strives to give you something different that’s not the norm. He has created a huge following in Nebraska as his fans truly believe in him. So if you’re looking for something different BUT good…….LET’S ROCK!
