After years producing primarily for Young Jeezy [click to read] as well as Pastor Troy and 8Ball & MJG, Atlanta producer Shawty Redd was honored this year from the Grammy's with his work earlier this year with Snoop Dogg.
Redd was nominated for "Rap Song of The Year" for "Sensual Seduction," a hit from the beginning of this year on Snoop's Ego Trippin' [click to read]. On the album, the song was titled "Sexual Eruption," a title change was made for the radio single.
Monday evening, the producer told HipHopDX, "Man, it’s an honor to be nominated for a Grammy Award. Actually, this
is my first nomination so it means a lot. I been grindin’ and doin’ my
thing for a while now so to get recognized is a blessing. I knew when I
was in the studio with Snoop workin’ on 'Sexual Eruption' that it was a
smash, so it was a huge record this past year for us both!”
Shawty Redd will await to see if he wins at the February awards. In the meantime, the producer has recently worked with Big Kuntry, as well as Jeezy's reported next Recession [click to read] single "Who Dat."
The recently hired A&R for Universal Records also reportedly has records in the works with The Clipse, Shawty Putt and Hurricane Chris.
The Grammy Awards air February 8 at 8 pm on CBS.
