Kash Doll released her music video accompanying her latest banger “Ready Set” featuring fellow Detroit rap representative, Big Sean, today while celebrating in her home town of Detroit with a private viewing brunch at Detroit’s 24 Grille located at the Book Cadillac Westin Hotel in the heart of downtown.
The record is an obvious undeniable summer smash, with its celebratory tone and energized pace driven flow. Directed by Jesse Ray Diamond with Teyana (Spike Tee) Taylor serving as Creative Director, the video matches the songs high energy with a Motor City-inspired race-themed visual that is beyond smoking hot.
Speaking about the song and video, Kash Doll said, “Ready Set is a motivational and aspirational song. I wanted to let people know if I can make it, despite the things I’ve been through, they can do it too. I’m a D girl so I’m determined.”
The Detroit rapper is on a serious roll. She is fresh off a BET Award nomination for “Best Female Hip-Hop Artist,” touring the country with Meek Mill and just had her major music release “Kitten” featuring none other than the legendary hip-hop icon Lil Wayne. This all follows her groundbreaking mini-movie and song “Hustla” released in April.
Detroit born and bred, Kash Doll has impacted the music industry with a commanding force, dropping street-earned truths with her throwback wordplay and powerful bars.
Detroit grit and her unbelievable story brought her to this point. Losing her dad on just her first birthday, she always held down multiple jobs to support her mom and siblings. And at 18, she started investing in herself eventually opening two beauty bars and funding her music career.
A bonafide D-Girl (Detroit Girl) she embodies her definition of being a real Detroit girl, “I feel like it’s how raw you are, it’s a thin line between classy and trashy, it’s the sprinkle you put into it, it’s how you handle things.” Kash Doll said.
Last year, Kash Doll also released a project solely for her fans titled Brat Mail to thank them for all their continued support. The project garnered over 23 million global streams and features the break out single “Check.” Shortly before Brat Mail, Kash released one of her biggest singles to date, “For Everybody,” which racked up over 10 million YouTube/VEVO views independently. She is currently working on her debut album, which is said to release this year.
