Kash Doll is the artistic name of the rapper Arkeisha Antoinette Knight who was born on March 14, 1992, in Detroit, Michigan. She is the oldest of six siblings; her mom was a single mother, so Knight had to start working at a very young age to help support her family. She took one year of marketing at Henry Ford College, but she dropped out to pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. She worked as a strip dancer to earn money to help her family. Sometimes, she rapped instead of dancing since the audience used to love her performances.
Knight started performing at local clubs and charity events in 2014, and she used social media to promote her work. She had her big chance when the rapper Drake invited her to participate in his Summer Sixteen tour in Detroit. Between 2015 and 2016, she released three singles – ‘His & Hers,’ ‘Run Me My Money,’ and ‘Accurate.’ In 2018, she signed a record deal with Republic Records. She collaborated with several high-profile artists; she featured on Iggy Azalea’s single ‘F**k It Up,’ her single ‘Kitten’ features the well-known rapper Lil Wayne, and she was the opening act for Meek Mills’ “The Motivation Tour” in 2019.
In 2020, she made her television debut and played herself in two episodes “Empire” and landed a recurring role in the series “BMF” in 2021. After a brief hiatus, she released “Back On Dexter,” her first Gangsta Grillz mixtape. It featured other artists including Lakeyah, Payroll Giovanni, and Icewear Vezzo.
