Asian Doll is the hardest doll in the female rap game… period! Signed to Gucci Mane’s 1017 Eskimo x Alamo Records, the Dallas, Texas native recently unleashed her So Icy Princess last year, home to standout single “Talk.” Now, she stops by Power 106 for our exclusive Now You Know series, touching on everything from her name, working with Gucci, her rainbow hair, remixing 6ix9ine’s “Gummo,” and more.
Real name Misharron Jamesha Allen began rapping at the age of 17, which is when the concept of her name came into fruition. Most recently, she unleashed her new single “Grandson,” which she claims she freestyled in the booth after someone pissing her off. Speaking on how she got into melodic rap, she states, “I had become a studio junkie. I was listening to Uzi, I had tried out his song ‘Buy It.’ I had remixed it & called it ‘Rockstar Baby.’ When I did that, it sounded like a rockstar. It just sounded so hard, my first melodic autotune song. I was so scared to put it out because of my fanbase, I was so used to doing rowdy songs. When I put it out, Uzi liked it & everything.”
In addition, that’s when PnB reached out to her & she found herself among all these other types of artists. Watch above as she discusses making “Talk” while she was sick in the studio and the one thing most people may not know about Gucci Mane!
