Red Shaydez – ‘Lemme Go Talk My Sh**’

When she was given a pair of red sunglasses, it was a defining moment for Boston rapper Red Shaydez. “Red” was symbolic of her ambition and ambiance, while “Shaydez” represented her POV from behind the tinted lenses, and became her nickname. Red Shaydez has established her name in her local scene and beyond, while her creativity makes her stand apart; more than just an award-winning hip-hop artist, she’s also a professional video producer, educator, and youth mentor too.

In 2015 she was nominated for “Best Female Rapper Of The Year” by NYC Underground Music Awards; this is impressive because it her debut album, ‘Magnetic Aura’. Red Shaydez is a self-made woman who directs, funds, and services everything by herself. Anyone listed in the credits of anything she makes, has been selected by Red Shaydez.

With ‘Lemme Go Talk My Sh**’ Red Shaydez reminds us once again how she’s managed to make it so far. The video sees her command her artistic vision with the help of director SnapsbyKat, making them a power duo. Red Shaydez is bold, shameless, and unapologetic; she returns the energy that she receives, but if you get on her bad side, she’s going to speak up. The clip sees her play a range of characters: from a private school student to the bearer of the church’s offering plate – never once does she falter in her words or flow, and she even uses a megaphone to emphasise her bars. Red Shaydez in no uncertain terms lets everyone know, when the shi** is being talked, you better stay quiet.
