Demetrius Lee Stewart (born June 21, 1981), better known by his stage name Shawty Redd, is an American record producer[2] and rapper. He is cited as one of the pioneers of the production style which would become synonymous with the trap subgenre.[3]


Production style[edit]

Shawty Redd is known for his traditional trap style and ominous, horror-influenced melodies and chord progressions. A good example of this is his production on Trap House and Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101. He can also compose melodic instrumentals similar to his work on Snoop Dogg's "Sensual Seduction".
