With raw lyrical talent and a commanding presence, up-and-coming rapper Allie Baby offers a sound that is uniquely her own. A native of New Orleans, Allie started her performance career as a member of Blak Iyce, a female group molded under the guidance of DJ Wild Wayne. Later, she also joined Gs Up, an rap group started by Atlanta rapper Lil Scrappy. As part of these acts, Allie toured the U.S. and opened for household names including G-Unit, Camron, and Nas.
In 2005, Allie embarked on her own solo career, releasing her first mixtape, Preseason. In 2010, she released another mixtape, Study Hall, which eventually led to her nomination for Best Female Artist in that year’s New Orleans Underground Hip-Hop Awards. The next year, she followed up with yet another mixtape, 12:47, which featured DJ Smallz and 8 Ball, and was again nominated for Best Underground Female Hip-Hop Artist – this time clinching the award.
Allie’s efforts and stage presence continued to draw notice, leading to a role in the feature film Must Be the Music (2013), a nomination at the 2012 Southern Entertainment Awards, and features in the Swedish magazine Sonic. In 2014, Complex included her in their list of “Top 10 New Orleans Rappers You Should Know,” while her music received placement in Tyler Perry’s The Haves and The Have Nots. The following year, Allie performed at SXSW and the Congo Stage at New Orleans’ Jazz & Heritage Festival – which earned her accolades in The New Orleans Advocate. That year, she also released a new mixtape, Wifey, which landed on U.K. hip-hop charts. Currently, Allie continues to write, record, and perform, and recently released a new single, “No Feelings,” featuring Denisia.
“Tough, sexy, and playful, her lyrical chops are like a stealth bomb exploding out of a deceptively cute and tiny package, and tracks like “Yay” (produced by Drumma Boy) ooze Southern swagger.” – Complex
“As an independent artist who has been featured in Rolling Stone, Complex, and Hip Hop Nation, Allie Baby has proven she’s the music. But she also means business.” – GirlGangMusic.com
