Behind the Video: Kat Dahlia – ‘Gangsta’

Kat Dahlia returned to her Miami roots to shoot the video for her debut single “Gangsta.” The rapper-singer-songwriter, who is signed to Sylvia Rhone’s Vested in Culture/Epic Records, walked on the railroad tracks and cozied up to her male co-star in a classic blue convertible while rocking a colorful wardrobe.

“It was really important for me to shoot this video in Miami because this is my hometown,” said the 22-year-old Kat, who was raised by Cuban-born parents. “I think that the richness and the culture, the colors, the story, it just felt right—and the weather’s good in February.”

The full video will debut March 5. Go behind the scenes with the rising star.
