Early Career & Struggles
  • Jessica Dime started her career as a dancer/stripper at the ‘King of Diamonds Nightclub’ in Miami. It was the same club which resulted in the stardom of Black Chyna and Shenilla Bettencourt and she started making more than US$10,000 a week. However, it was only a means to an end for her as she wanted to use her dancing skills to embark on a career in hip-hop music. With the saved money, Jessica recorded demos like ‘The Diary of a Dimepiece (Prelude)’, ‘The Diary of a Dimepiece Chapter 1’, and ‘The Diary of a Dimepiece Chapter 2’. Her videos garnered the attention of singer-producer Flo Rida who signed her under his label ‘International Music Group’. Her only popular release around this time was ‘Jessica Dime aka Dimepiece - Nickel & Dime’ which was mostly the result of her own hard work. Although the deal was for three years, they separated ways as Dime felt Flo Rida was more concerned with his own career. In 2014, she returned to stripping but only for a short while.
