Red Cafe Cops To Disorderly Conduct In Pot Possession Case

Brooklyn-bred “Birthday Sex” artist Red Cafe got a break in his knife and pot possession case that stemmed from a traffic stop in Chelsea.

The 40-year-old Afro-Guyanese rapper, whose real name is Jermaine Denny, copped to disorderly conduct and must only stay out of trouble as a condition of his deal.

Denny, who is signed to Bad Boy Records, was on W. 14th St. near Ninth Ave. when he was pulled over in his 2008 Cadillac Escalade around 6:30 p.m. on July 19 for having a suspended license.

The stop was near the Samsung Theater, where he was set to perform with French Montana the next night.

Denny was charged with unlicensed operation of a vehicle, unlicensed driving, marijuana possession and felony possession of a weapon — an upgraded rap because of his prior criminal record.

There were two bags of weed in his SUV’s glove compartment, cops said.

But at a brief appearance Wednesday in Manhattan Criminal Court, prosecutors reduced his case to a violation and he pleaded guilty. The move will leave him without a criminal conviction.

Denny’s attorney, Franklin Rothman, said his client keeps the SUV in New York but lives in Florida.

“He has a driver, other people use it,” Rothman said. “He knew there was some kind of knife in a compartment door — not his knife.”

During the stop, Denny “alerted the police to it” but told them it was “not his.” He also “cleared up his license” which he was unaware had been suspended, Rothman said.

The lawyer called Denny a “good boy” who “has not been arrested in over 20 years.”

Cops said the knife was in his waistband, but Denny and the attorney disputed the claim and insisted it was in a side compartment.

Denny has collaborated with hip hop artists including Fat Joe, Rick Ross and Fabolous.
