DJ Malone Got to talk to Alonna in a sit down interview.
DJ MALONE- How did you get started in this music?
Alonna- It all started when I was in the church choir and developed into a solo artist. It wasn’t till I was about 21 I really wanted to make a career out of it. It turned into a drive and a pure hunger to express myself threw music
DJ Malone- Do you rap or sing?
DJ Malone– What made you wanna start doing music?
Alonna- Aside from the fact that I was born with music in me and have been surrounded by it all my life; I feel there are so many wannabes out here and I’m what the game been missing. I feel I’m one of the chosen few and I have everything it take to change the game.
DJ MALONE- Being a female in this game, what are some of trial and tribulation you had go though?
Alonna- The key factor of being a artist is keeping up with your appearance. As a female in the game the body must be tight and because my weight has always been up and down I have to stay on the gym. But that’s a walk in the park compared to making people listen to you. The game is tougher on woman than men so once you get they attention you better be saying something worth they while or go home to ya mother. Above all things the biggest trial is being a woman in a male dominated game a lot of men become distracted by ass and tits so they thinking with the wrong head. These guys wanna try to get in your pants while I’m trying to conduct business.
DJ MALONE-.What are working right now?
Alonna-Right now I’m working a building my empire. BMG is a kingdom in the making and we are working so hard to build the foundation that once it’s finishing it will never fall. Short term wise I have my calendars and t shirts on sale, be sure to support the movement. I have a few mixtapes I’m working on with a few Dj’s. Be sure to watch out for my personal mix tape Wanted dropping after the new year, i promise it will be epic.
DJ MALONE –Whats your plans for when the summertime comes around?
Alonna –The goals don’t change much between the summer and winter. The grind don’t stop because is cold outside out in the chi. So the plan all year around in to travel, get on tour and drop more tapes. Im trying to get the attention of the right people to get me in a better position. I would definitely like to shoot more videos this summer. Now that’s always much easier when it’s warmer out but either way I’m ready for whatever.
