On Saturday (August 19), 18-year-old Harris took to Instagram Live where he aired out his frustrations in preparation for hosting his upcoming birthday bash dubbed “Welcome to Wild Fest 2023.”
According to Harris, not only have people left him hanging when it comes to organizing the shindig, but he’s been quoted astronomical prices for various items he envisioned for the event.
His wish list included an appearance from Sexyy Red, who the teen alleged wanted to charge him $50,000 for a verse. Harris also claimed that DaBaby once quoted him $100,000 for a feature.
“We hit up [Sexyy Red] but not her directly, but her people [tried to] beat me over the fucking head,” he explained. “They are obviously not trying to fuck with a n-gga. People just thinking goddamn too much about the money.”
“Yeah, they tried to tax me on some $50K type bullshit,” he added of Sexyy’s price. “Like, DaBaby tried to charge me for a 100K for a feature one time.”
As for the root of his disappointment, King claimed he’d never upcharge his friends and has periodically done favors for others without asking for anything in return, suggesting he may have some form of friendship with Red.
In spite of it all, King Harris shared in a post on Instagram that he has been successful in securing performances for the big event, including from Boosie Badazz and his son, Tootie Raww, as well as his father T.I.

Meanwhile, Sexyy Red recently made headlines for wreaking havoc in her raunchy new “Hood Rats” video alongside Sukihana.
Combining a mix of sophisticated and ratchet to create their own “sophisti-ratchet” style, the dynamic duo give a nod and a wink to BAPS, the classic film starring Halle Berry and Natalie Desselle.
In the visual, Red and Suki raise hell and holy water in a country club, slurping down champagne and twerking for a Joe Biden analogue while leaving nothing to the imagination, as Webbie and other celebs like Summer Walker and Saucy Santana make special guest appearances.
