Kash Doll, the buxom rapper reigning from Detroit, Michigan, has had a long-running buzz in the music industry. Before there was a Rico Nasty or Meg Thee Stallion, Kash Doll was putting out music that would only continue to get taken down because of a nasty business deal.
For many artists, that would be the death of their career but for Kash Doll, it was motivation to go harder.
“The feeling of finally releasing my first album [Stacked], I have to say…I don’t even know how I feel right now,” the Detroit diva told ESSENCE. “I can’t believe it. I feel like I’m living a dream.”
Last year, Kash Doll went on to sign with Republic Records which is home to artists like Drake, Post Malone, Ariana Grande and more of today’s chart-topping performers.

With a fresh new deal, the Kash Doll released songs like “Ice Me Out,” “Mobb’n,” and was featured on tracks with Big Sean, Iggy Azalea, and Dreezy.
“Moving to my situation with Republic was a relief,” she said. “I feel free and happy. I can finally be me. I can be an artist again. I can put out music without worrying about anything.”
Today, Kash Doll’s album Stacked is out to the public with features from Lil’ Wayne, Trey Songz, Summer Walker, and more heavy-hitting music mavens. Referencing her project as her “baby,” Kash Doll’s success is fitting considering her consistent and ultimately good music. Her easy flowing rap cadence is inspired by “real life” and her luxe fashion aesthetic crowns her the queen of Detroit.
“I learned that when I talk in my music, I don’t talk to one person. I’m talking to an audience.” – Kash Doll
ESSENCE got a chance to talk to Kash Doll and this is what happened when she visited the Black Girl Magic HQ.
