Additionally, she was featured alongside SZA on Drake’s single “Rich Baby Daddy” in the same year, reaching number 11 on the chart and accompanied by a viral music video showcasing Wherry giving birth to her second child.

Furthermore, she was nominated for “Best Breakthrough Hip Hop Artist” at the 2023 BET Hip Hop Awards.

Her public persona, lyrics, and media presence have been characterized as boldly sexual, lively, and self-assured.

Early Life

Janae Nierah Wherry hails from St. Louis, Missouri, where she spent her formative years.

Her journey into the world of rap began when she was faced with betrayal by her boyfriend, prompting her to channel her emotions into a diss track.

Embracing the stage name “Sexyy Red,” she drew inspiration from being called “Red” due to her vibrant red hair and her desire to exude sex appeal.

To distinguish herself from an Instagram figure with a similar name, she opted to include an extra “y” in her moniker.

Following her time at Normandy High School in Missouri, she embarked on her path towards musical success.

Career

Red made her musical debut in 2018 with the release of her first song “Ah Thousand Jugs”.

Following this, in 2021, she dropped her debut mixtape Ghetto Superstar.

Moving forward to January 2023, Red collaborated with Tay Keith on the track “Pound Town”, which quickly gained popularity on various social media platforms.

In April of the same year, she was featured on the remix of NLE Choppa’s “Slut Me Out”. May saw the release of “Pound Town 2” featuring Nicki Minaj, marking her first appearance on the Billboard Hot 100.

June brought the release of her mixtape Hood Hottest Princess. Red’s success continued in August 2023 when she joined Drake as an opening act on his It’s All a Blur Tour, following previous guest appearances at his shows.

Finally, in October, she collaborated with SZA on the single “Rich Baby Daddy”, which served as the third single from Drake’s eighth album For All the Dogs.

Artistry

Influences

Growing up, Red listened to artists such as Gucci Mane, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Project Pat, Juicy J, Three 6 Mafia, Chief Keef, Webbie, Boosie BadAzz, and Trina.

Kyle Denis remarked in Billboard that those artists “embody the unapologetically hood energy that now courses through every Sexyy Red song”, with Red herself stating that she sought to emulate their “fearlessness”.

She has frequently been called the “Female Gucci Mane” in particular and released a song with that title on her mixtape Hood Hottest Princess.

Lyrical and musical style

“I don’t agree with that [“pussy rap” classification], because why is that the only thing you heard me talking about? That’s the only thing that you got out of everything I just said? You just heard me say ‘coochie’? I hate when they say that.

I just rap about my daily life. Girls that live like me, I just rap about what we go through. I don’t sit and talk about coochie all day.”

– Sexyy Red discussing her lyrical themes

Red’s lyrics focus on one-sentence phrases rather than metaphors and other devices, with Jayson Buford of Rolling Stone writing that “she abstains from traditional lyricism”.

He also described her as a “classic Southern rapper”. In Complex, Eric Skelton called her songs “full of viral lyrics”.

Red has stated that her daily life serves as the main inspiration for her music.

Due to the often highly sexual nature of her lyrics, she has been characterized as a prominent figure of “pussy rap”, although she rejects this classification and has expressed exasperation over being reduced to her sexual songs.

Red is also noted for her distinctive voice and flow.

She has received praise for her “authenticity” and her “energy”, which are cited as factors for her success with a broad audience.

Personal Life

Red welcomed her first child, a son, in 2020. On October 15, 2023, she revealed her pregnancy with her second child through an Instagram post.

Her second child was born on February 5, 2024, and footage of the birth was featured in Drake’s music video for “Rich Baby Daddy”, which was released nine days later.

During August 2023, Red shared on a podcast that she had been a victim of rape.

Red, known for her support of former U.S. president Donald Trump, incorporates the phrase “Make America Sexyy Again” into her branding.
