what is the meaning of the expression すげえまずい alone?

I've never read it before.

Thank you.

すげえまずい <= すごいまずい <= すごくまずい i.e. gross/really awful tasting.

As for the change すごい => すげえ, you might be aware of, for example, いらない => いらねえ, both of which are very informal.

P.S. Since you provide no context, I assumed that まずい refers to food. まずい is used in other contexts, so you may have to adjust the translation accordingly.
