Karma Jonze

Listen to Take Control

Texas has a new leading lady and her name is Karma Jonze. Known for not following the norm and creating her own unique brand of southern hip hop flows and lyrics, Karma is setting a new standard as she takes the south by the storm one fan at a time. By any means, do not compare her to others because you simply can’t. Her unconventional approach and out of the box method of style has made it quite difficult toplace her in any one type category which is simply perfect for Karma who chooses to create her own lane. While every other artist is out there claiming that their style has yet to be rivaled, Karma is busy creating the platform and paving the way for future female hip hop/rap artists to follow in her footsteps.

Austin, Texas—-the “Live Music Capital of the World” is where Karma calls home. Inspired at a very early age by recording artists Queen Latifah and Missy Elliott, Karma spent countless hours in the studio perfecting her craft as well as the underground scene learning how to hustle her mixtapes for her cousin’s rap duo group. Overcoming all obstacles and making no excuses, Karma was determined to rise to prominence and make her mark in the hip hop music industry. Producing what she set out to do early on in her career and fulfilling a life long goal, Karma put her skills to work and on October 25, 2010, she released her first mixtape titled “Instrumental Institution”. Tracks like “Her Swagger” and “First Class Misses” may have provided the ladies a new anthem but make no mistake, Karma Jonze is not your typical female rapper.

Although “Random Blue Daze”, Karma’s first LP which was released on May 30, 2011, has been very successful and to date is still creating quite a buzz, she just released highly anticipated album titled “RetroActive” which was be dropped December 25, 2011 and knowing Karma, she won’t stop there!
