With raw and street-savvy lyricism and a raspy New Orleans accent, Allie Baby has certainly developed a sound that is uniquely her own. She got her start in two hip-hop groups: Black Iyce, which was modeled under the direction of DJ Wild Wayne. And Gs Up, which was founded by Atlanta rapper Lil Scrappy. She has opened in 20 cities for G-Unit, the 504 Boyz, B2K, Nas, Camron and other mainstream acts.
Eventually, Mannie Fresh recognized her talents and signed her to Chubby Boy Records/Def Jam from 2006-2008. Then, a chance encounter in a Memphis studio, led to Drumma Boy producing her breakout single “Yay.” As a result, Allie was signed to Drumma Boy’s Drum Squad records from 2009-2014.
Her 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,” furthermore, her music received placement in Tyler Perry’s The Haves and The Have Nots.
In 2015, Allie performed at SXSW and the Congo Stage at New Orleans’ Jazz & Heritage Festival – which she earned accolades in The New Orleans Advocate. That same year, she also released a new mixtape, Wifey, which landed on U.K. hip-hop charts.
Allie Baby continues to write, record, and perform, and will be releasing new music later this year.
