Red Shaydez is a multi-faceted, boxer robe-wearing, bully of a hip-hop artist and the queen of cool. Her lyrical prowess leaves nothing standing in its wake. She has a track record to prove that she is not only next but is now: the Boston-born lyricist, filmmaker, public speaker, and mentor has been featured on MTV, Fox 25 News, Hot 96.9 FM and performed at a plethora of festivals such as A3C, Hubweek, BAMS Fest, and more! She headlines her own local shows, and is taking the college circuit by storm with her consistently empowering brand. She was also nominated for “Unsigned Artist of the Year” at the 2019 Boston Music Awards.
She was co-signed by the legendary MC Lyte, and was nominated for “Best Female Rapper of the Year” at the 2015 NYC Underground Music Awards. And this was all before the release of her highly exalted debut album, “Magnetic Aura,” which as released in 2016 and went on to snag her features in notable publications like Boston Magazine, Dig Boston (who dubbed her the Coolest Rapper), Shade45, The Boston Globe, Thisis50, and ThisisHipHop Weekly, as well as several indie films.
The best part about this powerhouse is that she is entirely self-made, self-funded, and self-servicing. What you see, you don’t have to ask who’s behind it. Everything from street team to video direction, from album art to beat selection is hand-picked and Shaydez approved.
In 2019, Shaydez released her fan-pleasing EP, “Chillin in the Shade” and will be releasing her second full length album entitled "Feel The Aura" on July 27, 2020.
