Since her latest album, Feel the Aura dropped in late July, master-craft emcee, Red Shaydez has been having a banner year musically, picking up mentions and features in major publications like The Globe and WBUR and all the way to UPROXX and the UK’s POP Times. Since then she’s been nominated by the Boston Music Awards for Album of the Year, Hip Hop Artist of the Year, and Breakthrough Artist of the Year. Now the thermogenic local icon, Red Shaydez is sitting down with hip hop writer Jared Steinberg from Boston Hassle to talk about her recent success and her long-term journey of growing within the Boston hip hop scene through meticulous trial and error, and how she’s been able to hit her highest marks during a pandemic.
