From the booth to one of the most anticipated new television series coming to STARZ, Kash Doll has glided her way onto our tv screens. Based on a true story, Black Mafia Family (BMF) originated in the late 1980’s, where two brothers Demetrius “Big Meech” and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory from Detroit, who made the world of hustling a legacy and understanding the meaning of loyalty to carry onto the next generation. As their partnership’s vision beyond the narcotic trade into the world of Hip Hop would depict the brothers iconic on a global standpoint. The Starz series is produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s G-Unit Film and Television, which airs September 26th.
Kash Doll, whose real name is Arkeisha Knight, plays the role of “Monique”, a paralegal for the biggest defense attorney in Detroit and a strong single mother fixated on giving her daughter a better life. As parent, she’s a realistic provider. However, when she’s away from work and home Monique is ingenious, bold, and one of Demetrius Flenory’s lover. Meech and Monique’s relationship is more than just lovemaking and romantic phrases. Her firm epitomizes some of the biggest drug lords in the city, which allows Meech and Terry an edge in their uprise through the streets.
The new soon-to-be mommy sat now with TCC Founder, Driune Santana, to discuss her role and what she learned from portraying as one of Meech’s lovers in the series.
“First off, she was a bad chick,” the rapper laughed. “Secondly, she’s a woman from Detroit. She’s a boss outside of her love life, which was kind of complicated. She still had respect from both of those men that she was dealing with. In the 80s it’s the cash dollar type thing except for I’m not a mother.”
Doll continue to share how reliable her character is and how she has various of issues that’s happening throughout her life. “She continues to push through like us black women do.”
