New Music: Kat Dahlia – ‘Gangsta’

Kat Dahlia

As the new year approaches and new talent emerges, Sylvia Rhone introduces her newest artist Kat Dahlia (formerly known as Kat Hue). The music industry executive signed the Miami-born rapper-singer-songwriter to her Vested in Culture label with Epic Records after hearing her demos for the first time.

When her parents’ moving company folded following their divorce, Kat and her siblings went to live with their mother. The 22-year-old of Cuban descent reflects on her riches-to-rags childhood on her sultry single “Gangsta.”

“No, I ain’t stuntin’ like my daddy / He’s living with my grammy / Used to be a big baller / He’s surviving off of gambling / But I love him, he’s my daddy / Yeah, I love him, he’s my daddy / Put him in a big house before I ever see a Grammy,” she raps on the raw, yet infectious record.

A storyteller with the mind state of a hustler, Kat is one to watch in 2013. Check her flow below.

    Whoaaaa, I love this! Finally a song about what most people are going through in the world. I’m sorry, but I can’t relate to “phuckyoyacht” or all the other marterial riches artist mainly sing about…. love, family & humble beginings will never sell out. How refreshing

    That was DOPE!

    The cadence and melody would have fit really well on Rihannas Rated R album but the production reminds me of some of the shit 9th Wonder did for Jean Grae.

    Btw NOT comparing her to Rih Rih, just drawing sonic parallels.

So far shes makin all the right moves in the industry.. Shes on the same path as some of the great female singer/song writers that are hot right now!!!
