“…30 minutes of straight-up standing-on-the-table raps. There are a handful of songs on here that are bound to be summertime anthems.” – Pitchfork
“St. Louis rapper Sexyy Red has been delivering raunchy singles over the past three years, turning herself into a quotable local star with songs like “Throw That Mf” and “Hood Bitch.” Yet the MC is primed to break out of the midwest thanks to the X-rated anthem “Pound Town,” with weekly streams for the track starting to soar in recent weeks following the single’s late January release.” – Billboard
“Sexyy Red Is in Her Own League, and She Knows It…The St. Louis rapper is quickly becoming the hottest thing in hip-hop, all while just being herself.” – Rolling Stone
“The St. Louisian rapper laughs at critics and her own jokes. With the viral success of Pound Town and a raucous appearance at the BET Awards, she’s bringing ‘raw sh*t’ back into the rap game.” – The Face
“In 2023, Sexyy Red’s unapologetic honesty has helped her become a star. Her Tay Keith-produced song ‘Pound Town’ is a runaway viral hit, getting co-signed by everyone from Cardi B to Post Malone.” – Complex
Following the release of her new album, Hood Hottest Princess, Sexyy Red announces her first headlining tour, “Hood Hottest Princess Tour.” The new artist is making waves in the Hip-Hop and Rap spheres, recently added as support for Drake and 21 Savage on the remainder of Drake’s It’s All a Blur Tour.
Produced by Live Nation, the 20-city tour kicks off on October 16th at The Paradise Rock Club in Boston making stops across the U.S. in Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles and more before wrapping up in San Francisco on November 29.

About Sexyy Red
With explicit lyricism reminiscent of Trina, the raw storytelling of Boosie Badazz and Webbie, and Chief Keef’s rugged authenticity, Sexyy Red’s raunchy, in-your-face style taps into a strain of hilarious and animated rap the game has been missing since the heyday of Gucci Mane. But don’t get it twisted – as the main creative force of her own songs, lyrics, and videos, her music is only ever 100% Sexyy.
Sexyy Red has made Summer 2023 a #SexyySummer, with her Billboard Hot 100 hit “Pound Town 2” and her acclaimed album Hood Hottest Princess. The Tay Keith-produced “Pound Town,” has spent multiple weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, reached the Top 10 on Urban Radio, and its Nicki Minaj-featuring remix “Pound Town 2,” earned a GOLD certification from the RIAA. Together, all versions of “Pound Town” have racked up over 50 million global streams. Home to other hits like “SkeeYee,” a viral anthem praised by Drake and currently charting on Apple Music’s All-Genre singles charts, Hood Hottest Princess is climbing the Billboard 200, where it reached a new peak of #117 this week, and Apple Music’s charts, where it has peaked at #6 on the Hip-Hop albums chart and #19 overall.
This is just the start of a thrilling career for Sexyy Red, who called every shot she made since high school — including the success of her latest single. Don’t try to predict where she’s going next; Sexyy Red will tell you herself.
