The Detroit rapper’s first full-length has been hard fought for and a long time coming. The 27-year-old gained strong label attention with her first mixtape, Keisha Vs. Kash Doll, but ended up locked in a contract that prevented her from releasing any music. Through the power of social media, she kept increasing the buzz around herself until she was opening for Drake and collaborating with Big Sean. Now signed to Republic Records, she’s ready for her true arrival.
Big Sean is back for another feature (“Ready Set”), while the LP also sees guests in Lil Wayne (the previously revealed “Kitten”), Trey Songz, Teyana Taylor, Summer Walker, and Lougotkash. Other preview tracks include the TRU-interpolating “Mobb’n” and “Ice Me Out”.
Speaking with Interview Magazine, Kash Doll discussed how she utilized social media to formulate her persona while stuck in her bad deal:
“I was just going with my flow, having fun making videos, doing photo shoots, the stuff that most women like doing anyway. Some people think that I’m full of myself and that the only thing I can upload is pictures of me and how cute I am. They get to see me cracking jokes and being funny. If all else fails, I would just do stand-up. My alter ego is self-explanatory. Kash, because I’m about my money. Doll, because I’m pretty and I dress like a doll. Kash Doll is straightforward. She’s into the music. She’s talking about the money, like, ‘Eff the boys, they ain’t talking about nothing.’ Keisha is more down-to-earth. She’s cool, calm, collected. She will take her time with you. Kash Doll ain’t got no time.”
