Zonnique stopped by Hoodrich Radio with DJ Scream, DJ Princess Cut, & Amber Jaii to discuss her new EP, ‘Love Jones’, what it’s like growing up in a family of musicians, and some of her favorite things to do in her spare time.
She reveals that it is helpful to have her parents, Tiny and TI, give her advice and guidance, but she also still feels anxious when they sit in on her studio sessions and work because they are perfectionists.
When she’s not making music, she enjoys photography and playing guitar. Her favorite food spots in Atlanta are Houstons and Cheetah, and her top 3 rappers are currently Future, Young Thug, and Drake.
The ‘Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta’ star discusses business endeavors which include expanding her Love Jones merch and making t-shirts featuring her infamous mugshot from her arrest at the airport for carrying a gun in her purse.
Zonnique talks about the process of creating her ‘Love Jones’ EP, and how she diversified her sound to connect with different audiences. She drew inspiration for the project from life experiences and ironically chose the title before actually seeing ‘Love Jones’ the movie. When the movie aired on tv the next day, it was confirmation for the title of her EP.
Catch Zonnique and her family including TI and Tiny on ‘The Family Hustle’, airing Monday nights on VH1. Zonnique also stars in the upcoming season of ‘Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta’ on WEtv. Her EP Love Jones is available now on iTunes, Apple Music, and other digital platforms.
