Arkeisha Knight, more popular by her stage name Kash Doll, is an American rapper and actress. A native of Detroit, Knight had a rough childhood. She lost her father quite early in her life and was raised by her mother and stepfather. Emboldened with what she calls the hustler’s spirit, she has never shied away from hard work. Knight held several off-the-wall jobs while simultaneously pursuing a high school degree. After she graduated, she felt the need to earn more money and do it as quickly as possible. She became an exotic dancer and a successful one at that. At one point, she was earning thousands of dollars per night. Financially secure, she sought out other entrepreneurial avenues and eventually became a rapper. By 2014, she had already started booking gigs in the Detroit area. She released her first mixtape titled ‘K.R.E.A.M. Kash Rules Everything Around Me’ in early 2015. Recently, Kash Doll put out her latest mixtape, ‘Brat Mail’. In 2018, she made her cinematic debut in the drama film, ‘Birds of a Feather 2’.

Personal Life
  • Knight was born on March 14, 1992, in Detroit, Michigan. When she was only one year old, her father passed away and subsequently, her mother remarried. She and her six younger siblings were raised by their mother and her stepfather in a house located at The West Side in Detroit. While she was well provided for, the loss of her biological father at such an early age left its toll. Furthermore, her mother and stepfather argued constantly. She faced rampant teasing at school which caused some insecurities. Despite this, she was one of the most popular girls in her school.
  • She had always harboured the dream of being a rapper one day but she had not found the courage in her to consider it attainable. She loved to write poetry and held several odd jobs, such as babysitting and being a janitor at Ford Field. She also worked at Better Made Chip factory, Little Caesar’s Pizza, and Best Buy. After she graduated from Detroit City High School, she turned to exotic dancing to earn more money.
  • She was an exotic dancer for one year and it proved to be a profitable venture. On one particular night, she even earned $26,000. She then worked as a model before deciding to pursue her childhood dream.
