Best known as "The Mother of Sissy Bounce," performer and rapper Katey Red's newest album Katey's Hits has finally premiered to an audience of anxious followers and fans. Red originally became a hit on the bounce music scene in locally during the 90's long before becoming a national sensation. Katey Red's popularity has continued to grow as she crosses racial and gender boundaries. As the first transgender MC to gain serious popularity, Katey Red has worked hard to pave the way for fellow performers Big Freedia and Sissy Nobby.
Her latest album offers fun, party mix tracks with no-nonsense lyrics, beginning with Red's popular single, "Punk Under Pressure." The song offers a fast-paced beat that immediately gives the CD the bounce culture that it needs. "Stupid," featuring Big Freedia, brings listeners straight to Sissy Bounce as the two singers have fun calling out all their haters. This attitude continues throughout tracks "So Much Drama (I Ain't Wit It)" and "You Got Beef." The album absolutely gets one thing clear — you don't mess with Katey Red. -Leith Tigges
