FACT Freestyles: Miss Red

Israeli MC Miss Red takes no prisoners.

Back in 2011, The Bug was playing a set in a tiny bar in Tel Aviv when Miss Red approached him and asked to get on the mic: it was game over. The next day the pair found a studio and recorded ‘Diss Mi Army’ for a 7” on Kevin Martin’s Acid Ragga label.

Miss Red has since become one of Martin’s go-to vocalists for his live shows, appearing on his Angels & Devils album in 2014 and last year teaming up with him to release her debut mixtape, Murder, which features riddims from Martin and an international cast of producers, from Mumdance and Evian Christ to Andy Stott and Mark Pritchard.

Above, watch Miss Red’s fearless FACT Freestyle over Sly & Lenky’s dancehall instrumental ‘Now Thing’. Don’t miss The Bug and Miss Red’s performance in Leipzig tonight, more info here.
