When you hear that thunder clap in the distance right before a rainstorm, you know Red Sonya is coming! Hailing from Daytona Beach, Florida, Red Sonya is definitely a lyrical tornado when it comes to her rapid-fire delivery, creative wordplay and egnimatic prescence…..even before music, she has always captured and fascinated people of all walks of life with her prescence alone……she has superstar status/sex symbol written all over her. Men lust after her and women emulate and want to be her. She definitely has star quality.
Red Sonya has been around music all her life-her father was a saxaphone player in a band. Born August 29th, she shares the same birthday as the biggest entertainer off all time-Michael Jackson. She adored and idolized the late singer and announced to her parents at the 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 14 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 time off from music for awhile to pursue and continue her education, even opening several businesses and the music seed took hold and began to grow within her again and decided to put out a mixtape in 2011 called Red Sonya’s Street Gems” with guest appearances from Haitian Fresh, KLC (No-Limit Records), Cardiak, Grindmode (I’m So High” fame), and MD The Real. The mixtape became a street success. She is currently preparing TWO projects at once, a EP (“Yours Truly”) and an album (“Code Red”). Producers include Johnny Juliano (Birdman/Gucci Mane/Big Sean/2 Chains/Wiz Khalifa), Kajmir Royale (Tyrese, The Game), and KLC of The Medicine Men (Mystikal/T.I./B.G./Master P/Juvenile/Mia X/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 and blessed to know him and have him as my producer and on my team. You don’t understand…Mystikal is one of my favorite rap artists and I’ve been a HUGE fan of him and KLC’s music!!” she gushes. “I’ve ALWAYS wanted to work with him. 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” & “Code Red” has breathtaking production and it’s 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!
