Sexyy Red Performs ‘SkeeYee’ and More at 2023 BET Hip Hop Awards
Sexyy Red Opens Up the 2023 BET Hip Hop Awards
On Tuesday (Oct. 10), the St. Louis native opened up the 2023 BET Hip Hop Awards at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in Atlanta by joining DaBaby on stage. Together they performed their joint remix of "Shake Sumn." Sexyy then took the stage on her own later in the night, running through her songs "Pound Town," "Shake Yo Dreads" and "SkeeYee." The latter got the crowd especially rowdy and brought them to their feet.
The night also included performances from Fivio Foreign and GloRilla, and honored the 30th anniversary of hip-hop label So So Def with a group performance. The label founder Jermaine Dupri, Ludacris, Da Brat, Bow Wow, Bone Crusher and Dem Franchize Boyz all performed on stage for the tribute.
