Kat Dahlia is a 22 year old cuban rapper-singer-songwriter born in Miami, Florida. The young musician has just signed a deal with Sylvia Rhone of Epic Records. She is set to release her debut album in the new year through Vested in Culture a label run by Sylvia herself and is said to be the next big thing to come out of 2013.
Dahlia, formerly known as Kat Hue, has an interesting story. While most artists boast about their journey from rags-to-riches Kat tells her journey of riches-to-rags. ‘Gangsta‘ is a dark, emotional song that captures this struggle of falling from the top.
I haven’t heard much else from her yet but I can say that Kat definitely has what it takes to be the new talent in the new year. Based on this song the girl’s got soul and realness that the music industry eats up.
