Redimi2[1] (born Willy González Cruz; June 3, 1979) is a Dominican Christian music rapper and songwriter.[2]

González began releasing music in 1999 as a part of Redimi2 Squad, alongside his brother JG.[3] After all members besides González left the group, González took the name Redimi2. He is considered to be one of the most popular Christian rappers of the Dominican Republic and is internationally known. He is also known as the first rapper to release an album of Christian rap in his country. Redimi2 has collaborated with Christian singers like Lucía Parker, Annette Moreno, Danny Berrios and Jesús Adrián Romero, and Puerto Rican rappers Vico C, Funky, Alex Zurdo and Manny Montes. Willy has been married to Daliza Contreras since 2005 and has a daughter named Samantha González.

He has been nominated in the Contemporary Religious Music category at the Casandra Awards (now the Soberano Awards), Dove Awards for Spanish Album and Spanish Language Recorded Song, and has twice won the Best Urban Album category at the Arpa Awards.

In 2021, Willy appeared on the Evan Craft song "Be Alright", alongside Danny Gokey.[4] The song reached number 2 on Billboard's Hot Christian Songs chart.[5]
