Red Shaydez is a multi-faceted, boxer robe-wearing bully of a hip-hop artist and the queen of cool, whose 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, and mentor has performed at A3C, Hubweek 2018, BAMS Fest 2019, headlines her own local shows, and is taking the college circuit by storm with her live show and consistently empowering brand.
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 is working on her second full length album.
