Born in Santa
Clara of African-American and Chinese-Filipino descent and raised in Sacramento, the California native went from MVP status as a high school volleyball champ to becoming a shining student at USC.

At Artistry Studios, they produced her 2017 knockout viral smash "ICY GRL." Driven by a bulletproof flow and one clever line after another, it racked up 50 million YouTube views in a few months and over 31 million Spotify streams between the original and Kehlani
remix, achieved a gold certification from the RIAA, and soared to #1 on Musical.ly. She also earned the early endorsement of gatekeepers such as Vibe, XXL, HipHopDX, and MTV. Touting a new partnership with Warner Bros. Records and Artistry Records for her label Icy, she's rewriting the rule book and breaking the stereotype of the female emcee. Armed with tracks like "B.A.N." and "Good Good," High Maintenance features production courtesy of Zaytoven, Hassan, Saweetie, Cash Money AP, and Gousse.
As a businesswoman, she teamed with Sprayground, Reebok, and Fashion Nova for high-profile partnerships. Meanwhile, everyone from David
