Within our society, women have several norms that are placed on them. It’s in the movies, the music, and in our everyday lives at work and sometimes even at home. Women have that societal stereotype put on them that states that they can’t do this, and can’t do that and that if they do this then they must be that.
Detroit-based business women and rap mogul, Kash Doll, is breaking that mold. She is showing women that they can be a BOSS and be pretty at the same time. She is proving that just you can have a pretty face and be about your business. In addition, just because she is from Detroit does not mean she has a “city-based” mind set. Kash Doll has proven to be both a local and national commodity through several endorsement deals with beauty, clothing, and cosmetic lines. With a mere 400k social media followers, this young beauty is on her way to becoming a household name.
In a recent interview with the rising star, she spoke on her aspirations of getting into the industry, other business ventures that she has, and what she is planning for the upcoming days.
Who is Kash Doll?
I am a doll that likes to get cash. I’m a Boss!
What inspired you to get into the rap game?
I’ve always wanted to be an entertainer, so one day I decided to do a freestyle and from that someone paid me $2500 to hop on a feature and then later I did a remix to “2 On” which received radio rotation in the city (Detroit), and since then I kept putting out good music.
How do you see yourself changing the game as a female emcee?
By giving us a voice by still being able to be pretty, while stull showing that we can hold our own, are strong Black women, can make our own money, and that we don’t need a man for finances. I can’t say that you don’t need a man because how are you going to have kids, but we don’t need one to get money. We can make it on our own and be a BOSS!
You recently had the pleasure of working with LA’s finest, AV Compton. How was that experience?
Greattttt! I love AV, he’s dope! So it’s sort of like we are the same. I love him as an artist and a person. He’s a great person and whenever someone is authentic and genuine it makes it easier to work with them.
Who else would love to work with?
I’ve always wanted to with Rihanna! I love DMX. Of course Nicki Minaj; it would be dope to work with Nic.
So you recently shot your video for “Run Me Money”, do you have any other projects that you are currently working on?
Yes! I have a promo CD called “K.R.E.A.M.” which stands for “Kash Rules Everything Around Me”. I am also working on my album.
Do you have a release date for it yet?
I don’t have an exact date, but I am pushing for the summer.
In addition to music, you also act and you wrapped up your first movie called “Buffed Up”. Can you describe your role in the film?
The character is much like myself. She is a girl from the hood that likes to stay fly. I’m being myself in the film with the exception that I am not a gold digger in real life. But other than that it was so much fun filming the film and being able to play myself.
When will the film be released?
In mid-March you celebrated your birthday and held your first concert. How was that?
Epic! It was crazy! It was sold out. There was so much love in the building, it was overwhelming! The event was very successful and I can say that I’m living my dream. I wish I could re-live that night.
Do you have any other concerts coming up?
Yes, I do. I have one coming up with AV in Los Angeles at the end of April.
Besides being an artist and actress, you are also a business woman. What other ventures do you have?
I have a store called “Kasa De Doll” which is House of Doll in Spanish. It’s a beauty bar. I have a nail technician, hairstylist, a make-up artist, and a boutique in the front. We’re that one stop shop for all of your beauty needs. I have a variety of clothes for every occasion, whether it’s for court, a meeting, going out, church, I have it all. The theme of the shop is “All I’ve ever wanted”, which is in this one place.
I also branded my own logo which is me back when I was in that life (stripping) holding a bag of money wearing a pair of red bottom heels. I also hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management.
Nice. You have also proven to be an entity that local and national brands have partnered with. So what are some of the endorsement deals that you booked so far?
Dittrich Furs, Mink Brazilian Hair StyleProby Kendra, and Bebe. I always shop in Bebe and they loved how I wear the clothes, so that is how that endorsement deal came about.
Being a business woman and artist, how are you able to manage and balance it all?
I love it all. I am able to make time for everything, and I’m a BOSS, I do want I want to do, so I make things happen.
What advice do you have for other women who want to get into the music industry as a rapper?
Just do it! Don’t listen anyone else. Live your life.
When you are not working what do you enjoy doing?
Shop, shop, shop! And I love being with my dog. I also love hanging with my sister and best friends.
What is something that the readers do not about you from looking at your Instagram?
I am very silly and goofy! I am also sensitive. I don’t like when people are mean and feel that the word no shouldn’t be used against me. I am also very sweet and I don’t flaunt to impress people or for likes, I just love what I do.
