The following is from
  • “Behind The Music: Young Riddle (RDL) was born in Phoenix Arizona under the name of Randy Medina and he currently resides in Glendale Arizona. Riddle overcame many obstacles and hardships in his life to include surviving a battle with brain tumors. At 4 years old he was told he would have to undergo an intensive brain surgery, which had a very low chance of survival. They told his family that even if he survived the surgery he would not be able to speak and could be paralyzed on the entire left side of his body. Not only did Riddle survive but he is using that miracle voice and body to sing and dance into the hearts of all who hear him. He has nothing but a scar across his head and a story to tell what he and his family went through. Riddle survived against all odds, by the grace of God, which gave him an appreciation for life and a yearning to give back to the community. Riddle hopes to team up with the tumor centers of Children’s hospitals to encourage parents and kids who’s situations may seem hopeless, that there is hope and he is proof of it. Riddle has the same scar many of these kids have. He stands as a role model and example to them that one can, not only survive, but can use their testimony as a platform to teach the world never to give up.
  • Events: RDL performs all over Arizona at events to include YMCA Healthy Kids Days, Boys and Girls Club Park Events, Chicanos Por La Causa, several school red ribbon week ceremonies/drug awareness events, Phoenix Children’s Hospital Holiday Event, the State and County Fairs, Gospel Explosions, Car Shows, Indian reservations, Hiphop for Haiti, Peace Fest Events, Retirement Homes, charity events and many other venues.
  • Musical Performances: RDL has won many contests such as the Glendale Parks and Recreation Talent show (for 2 years) post Jordin Sparks winning the title. He won first place consecutively for 2 years for male vocal at the COG Teen Talent Competition along with several other local contests. He has performed with and/or opened for artists such as Vanilla Ice, Ying Yang Twins, Carmen, DMX, Coby O’Donis, Paula DeAnda, MC Magic, Baby Bash, Daddy Yankee, Lil Rob, Brent Wood, Cece Peniston and many more.
  • Theater: RDL participated in theater performances to include: “The Brown Paper Hat”, “Martin Luther King Tribute” and “Michael Jackson Tribute” by Rod Ambrose (Project Brave); he also served as understudy with the Black Theater Troupe “Revenge of the King”.

He has performed on Channel 44 cox cable; Channel 3 interview, Channel 33 with Chicanos Por La Causa and several internet television stations. Riddle was on Mega 104.3 promoting a car show event and can be found on 1280 am with the show “Barrio Breakthrough” every Saturday 9pm-12am.
  • Fans: RDL takes the time to interact with his fans and give them autographs.”

“On a personal note, I met Young Riddle for the 1st time at a local car show on the South Side of Phoenix. It was after taking out my camera to capture some of his performance…which I really liked because all the kids were responding to his positive lyrics! After his performance I went up to him and asked him if he had a Music page (I had already been advertising all things Arizona for some time now) that I could help spread the word about. He was a genuinely Good person. He didn’t speak the Site out, like many people would do when you ask them, instead he gave me a Free copy of his CD “Here I Am” that he was selling at the car show…not only did he give me a Free CD, but the CD had all of his sites listed on it. I will always remember that day when I think of RDL a.k.a. Young Riddle…you want to know the reason….like the old saying goes, “Actions speak louder than words!” And now here I am, no pun intended, but here I am telling all of you about him, on one of the State’s Biggest Hip-Hop Sites! I give Young Riddle a lot of Respect and God’s Love for doing what he does for God! Arizona, please…please…Stand Up and Show Love for RDL a.k.a. Young Riddle!!!”~Jo Jo Brown
