Sexyy Red brings the energy in her deluxe version of "Hood Hottest Princess"

On Friday, Dec. 1, one of this year’s hottest new artists released the deluxe to her breakout debut album “Hood Hottest Princess.”

Sexyy Red has been everywhere thanks to her hit songs “SkeeYee,” “Hellcats SRTs,” “Looking For The H*es (Ain’t My Fault),” and “Pound Town.” Looking to capitalize on her success, Sexyy Red added 11 tracks including some recently released singles to her already popular album "Hood Hottest Princess."

Red is known for her unapologetic and raunchy lyrics, which continue in this deluxe. The material, though the same, still makes it exciting from rapping about her baby dad, high-speed racing, and dancing in the club. The beat selection was even better than the original album, thanks to producers Mac Fly, Tay Keith, and Mike WiLL Made-It. However, the best thing about this album is the collaboration with artists like Detroit rapper 42 Dugg, Summer Walker, and Sukihana. However, the match made in heaven was the feature with Chicago legend Chief Keef on “Ghetto Princess.” Using a drill beat was perfect as Keef is considered the father of drill in the rap scene.

This album starts to fall off near the end after her song “Perfect Match,” with G Herbo and 42 Dugg. Most songs start to become repetitive as Sexyy Red is not an album artist. With no real flow between tracks or concepts, it is easy to get numb to the project. Red herself seems to get lackadaisical as the same effort in her flow and lyrics were not present in the last few songs.

Sexyy Red is a fun artist, there is no question about it, and she brings an energy to the rap scene that was desperately needed. Songs such as “Perfect Match,” “Ghetto Princess," and “Sexyy Please" were standout tracks in a project that can get repetitive. With no real expectations and no competition in her subgenre, this project is above average, 5/10.
