The Lioness Aja Malone

Rude Boy Magazine

In a male dominated industry, many female MCs never have the opportunity to stand out. However on occasion, there comes a female MC that defies that trend, and Aja Malone is proving to be Hip-Hop’s best kept secret weapon. Having lived in both Maryland and Georgia, Aja began her rapping career at an early age, admiring female MCs like MC Lyte and Queen Latifah not just for their lyrical content, but also for the presence, style and charisma on the microphone. Aja also admires Mary J. Blige for her raw talent & for her being a down to earth, strong, classy, elegant lady whose talents have emerged throughout her career displaying her versatility, creativity, & business innovation. Aja wrote her first rhyme at 10 years old, making it clear she was not your average little girl. Continuing to rhyme in high school and college and battling guys in the cafeteria, Aja quickly gained respect from her male counterparts. Aja joined Micology, a Hip-Hop club formed by students at her school that became the essence of Hip-Hop on campus. Her peers respected Aja as the only female MC in the group holding her own with the fellas, which ignited her passion and hunger for Hip-Hop music and culture.

After graduating she began to record with local producers, however it was not until Beat Box presents SubSkript, a group of lyricist and producers, that she further advanced her love for Hip-Hop. The group’s first mixtape entitled “Free For All” displayed Aja’s versatility as she did songs to fit each geographic location (North, South, East, & West). Beat Box’s first LP album entitled “The Era” Aja co-executive produced. Once again Aja shinned, letting the world know she is not your typical female rapper. Currently, Aja is a DIGGZTOWN MUSIC GROUP artist who dropped her first mixtape entitled “Secret Weapon” in August 2012. That will be followed up by an EP album entitled “I Live For This…” dropping Summer 2014/Fall 2015 which will be executive produced by Domingo “Diggz” Hussain, and her 2nd mixtape “Secret Weapon Volume 2: Cloak and Dagger” in Summer of 2014.

Aja is not just an artist but also a songwriter, entertainer, and a businesswoman, striving to make an impact in the music and entertainment industry with her passion, visions, innovation, and uniqueness. Look for Aja to take Hip-Hop and her brand of music from the U.S. to beyond, as the next generation of Hip-Hop.
