Red Sonya has been around music all her life-her father was a saxophone player in a band. Born August 29th, she shares the same birthday as the biggest entertainer of all time-Michael Jackson. She adored & idolized the late singer and announced to her parents at the tender age of 6 that she wanted to entertain just like her musical hero. She did just that when she released her first record at the age of 12 with "Give A Dog A Bone" from her debut album "Doggy Style Funk" on Boomin'/BMG Records, a subsidiary of Jive/RCA Records. It peaked at #54 on the Billboard Rap Charts and received international attention. She took tome off from music for awhile to pursue & continue her education, even opening several businesses. The music seed took hold and began to grow within her again and she decided to put out a mixtape in 2011 called "Red Sonya's Street Gems" with guest appearances from Haitian Fresh, KLC (former lead producer of No-Limit Records), Cardiak, Grindmode ("I'm So High" fame) and Mattnificent, a fellow local up-and coming rap artist. The mixtap because a street success. She is currently working on her upcoming release CODE RED. Producers include Johnny Juliano (Birdman/Gucci Mane/Big Sean/2 Chainz), Kajmir Royale (Tyrese, The Game), & KLC of The Medicine Men (Master P/Mystikal/B.G./ Juvenile/ Snoop Dogg). KLC is also executive producer of her album CODE RED and contributed 5 tracks and is also her mentor & big brother. "He's taught me so much about the game. I'm just so thankful & blessed to know him and have him as my producer as well as on my team. You don't understand...Mystikal is one of my favorite rap artists and I've been a HUGE fan of him & KLC's music!" she gushes. "I've ALWAYS wanted to work with KLC. I love his sound!"
With hard-hitting, bass-heavy Southern street bangers like "Code Red," What They Need," and "I Declare War," KLC provides the perfect backdrop for Red Sonya's sexy but deadly flow and aggressive, back-breaking wordplay. "YOURS TRULY" (her current EP on iTunes) & "CODE RED" has breathtaking production and is guaranteed to be platinum bound!
It's a CODE RED....you've been forewarned. The female rap game will never be the same after Red Sonya answers the call!
