Who is Kash Doll?

Published

on

Kash Doll stands at only 5’6 but her commanding presence makes her at least ten feet tall. This Detroit, Michigan spitter commands the mic with her lyrical capabilities but also governs the eyes thanks to her effortless sexuality. While she’s drawn comparisons to female rap icons such as Nicki Minaj and Trina, her abilities are within her own lane. The dexterity she’s shown in her growing catalog of music means that she is in a lane of her own. She started off as an exotic dancer who was uncomfortable in the role. Through hard work and perseverance, she was able to jump headfirst into the Detroit rap scene and hasn’t looked back since.

Bio:

Kash Doll was born on March 14, in Detroit, Michigan. She knew from a young age that she wanted to be either a rapper or singer. She grew up listening to Aaliyah, DMX, Fabolous, Mary J. Blige, and Jennifer Lopez. It was rough for her growing up on Detroit’s west side in a household consisting of her mother, stepfather, and six siblings; Her biological father died when she was only a year old. She attended Detroit City High and worked a series of odd jobs to help take care of her younger siblings. After graduating, she turned to exotic dancing to make money more easily than what a minimum wage job could provide. She was close to Dex Osama, the late Detroit rapper who was tragically gunned down in 2015. His death inspired her to pursue music.

On a whim, she released a remix of Junior Mafia’s track “Get Money” on social media and received an overwhelming wave of support. People immediately flocked to it, causing Chicago rapper Chief Keef to take notice. He contacted her and set things into motion, causing her to open for the rapper in her first performance ever. After her performance, she was contacted for a feature by a rapper who paid her $2,500. This caused her to really pursue her craft. Since then, things have been smooth sailing. She’s released her debut project Keisha vs. Kash Doll to critical success and continues to push the envelope in new and exciting ways.

Standouts:

Her track “For Everybody” is a stunning track, telling two sides of a story; from a wife and the side chick’s perspective. It’s definitely something to listen multiple times to catch everything it entails.

Spotlight: Young Roc’s “Gone Till November” still cranks

Published

on

In a land full of melodic rappers who know how to ride beats, Roc stands out at his sheer ability to excel at it. We previously covered his magnetic single “Upp,” remarking how refreshing the single was and how it shows a new side to Detroit’s rap scene. Another one of his tracks that we’ve been hung up on is “Gone Til November” which exhibits this same sense of melodic delight.

The production is silky smooth like Jodeci meets contemporary trap. Young Roc does his thing, as usual, finding a delicate balance between singing and rapping that’s hard for most rappers to do. Featured artist Nasaan holds his own against Roc’s melodies with his own, creating a track that’s been stuck in our heads for a while.

Check out Young Roc’s “Gone Till November” below.
