Sexyy Red made her name with her supernatural confidence and a knack for crafting NSFW bars that are as irresistible as they are unrepeatable in polite company. Accelerating her rise to trap royalty, the St. Louis native shares Hood Hottest Princess, her new mixtape.
The 11-track mixtape is home to the Nicki Minaj collaboration “Pound Town 2,” the acclaimed remix to Sexyy’s Tay Keith-produced viral hit. Released just before Memorial Day, “Pound Town 2” made its debut on the Billboard Hot 100 this week, reaching No. 66 and likely to rise in the coming weeks.
A relentless barrage of twerkable anthems, Hood’s Hottest Princess builds upon Sexyy’s brash and unapologetic persona. Reuniting with “Pound Town” producer Tay Keith, tape highlight “SkeeYee” is a searing collection of come ons and putdowns.
“Looking For These Hoes (Ain’t My Fault)” produced by Melz, Truebeatzz, Menace and Don Alfonso is a Silkk The Shocker-referencing clarion call to the dancefloor for women who aren’t afraid to be their most exhibitionist selves: “Yeah, yeah, yeah, I hate a lame btch with class,” asserts Sexyy. New songs “I’m The Sht” and “Sexyy Walk” exude an irrepressible bad b*tch energy, combining Sexyy’s crisp wordplay with an addictive drawling delivery that has become her signature.
Hood Hottest Princess is home to previously released singles “Female Gucci Mane,” named after a nickname that Sexyy Red received from folks from her hometown and her peers in the rap game, plus “Born By The River,” a collaboration with Sexyy’s close friend Sukihana.
Featuring an additional appearance from Juicy J on “Strictly For The Strippers,” Hood’s Hottest Princess is available everywhere via Open Shift/gamma. Listen below.
