Like her home state, New York, K Goddess works around the clock without delay. Not only is she a top-notch rapstress, but she also dabbles in modeling, acting, and philanthropy, having donated over $30,000 to her community in response to the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the current racial injustice in America.
K Goddess is also known as the first lady of drill music and sometimes even uses this genre to drive her sound. Surprisingly, she’s also the artistic director for all her visuals and hit singles. Although the femcee has only been rapping for four years, her creative direction attests to why she’s an artist to watch out for. From a lyrical standpoint, K Goddess speaks about what it’s like growing up in Brooklyn, past experiences, self-love, and charm, to name a few. Some might even concur that her rap delivery is reminiscent of Trina and Lil Kim. Sonically, K Goddess spits scathing bars over dark hip-hop offerings that carry a heavy bass, kick-snares, and other hyped-up elements.
Before gaining recognition in 2017, she was classified as one of the best basketball players in her high school and college. Following this, K Goddess began putting the pen to the pad and instantly fell in love with creating music. To support her newfound passion, she picked up a night job of bartending in night clubs all around New York City. Once her peers back at school discovered her side job, they weren’t very accepting of this, which caused K Goddess to choose between basketball or having a music career. After considering everything, she decided to be a full-time musician. K Goddess then started building her social media reputation as a “Hood Chick” who keeps it “Too Real” on social media.
K Goddess received her big break when she met with Billboard producer, former Love And Hip Hop New York cast member, and Cardi B‘s past producer, SwiftOnDemand. Eventually, the two collaborated, and within two months, released her debut mixtape entitled Diary Of A Goddess. She’s also received a co-sign from UK Artist GIGGS after making a rendition to his single “Whippin Excursion.”
Following her single, “Don’t Ask,” which dropped this summer, K Goddess dropped a 10-track project titled East Coast B*tch last month. In a word, the album serves listeners with slick talk, sensuality, pure confidence, empowering anthems, and straightforward storytelling. East Coast B*tch also confirms that K Goddess is no stranger to standing her ground. Beat-wise, the music compilation showcases aggressive soundscapes that are led by a heavy bass and dark arrangements. She speaks her piece in fast, bouncy, and in-your-face cadences.
Standout tracks include “Ping Pong,” “Rodeo,” and “Beetle Juice.”
“Ping Pong,” which is produced by JBangaBeats, sees K Goddess telling internet thugs that “they better mean what you say when you sending that text.” Additionally, she details her intimate moments with a man who might be bluffing about his lifestyle. Elsewhere, K Goddess unveils that there are people out there who don’t want to see her win, “These b*tches be mad that I’m up one/They be talking all tough ’till the gun come.” As the song continues, K Goddess speaks about her ways with men, assuring doubters that she has no reason to lie. The soundscape carries bright electro synths, a bellowing bass, a dark piano number, and other uptempo elements.
“Rodeo” is a trap offering full of eerie loops, a flute arpeggio, and a heavy bass. Between lyrics, K Goddess speaks about getting it on, saying he refuses to be with anyone else because she’s the real deal. “Don’t be f*cking with these groupies cause these b*tches flip flop.” Despite this, K Goddess refuses to wear her heart on her sleeve because “n*ggas ain’t shit/go in his phone, texting another b*tch.” Regardless, any man she’s with is going to have a hard time getting over her.
Towards the second verse, a male belts out a solemn tune. Then, K Goddess speaks about keeping a small circle and keeping a low tolerance for B.S, before going in about haters who love her music on the low. Once the two-minute mark comes, she delivers her bars in a cadence akin to Pop Smoke‘s. In that instant, K Goddess showcases her self-confidence, assuring that the men she’s dealt with will always come back for more.
Lastly, “Beetle Juice” sees K Goddess using a swift cadence to speak about her undying hustle. At the same time, K Goddess tells potential lovers that she’s focused on getting the bag and less focused on building a relationship right now. Deeper into the song, K Goddess iterates that she doesn’t care about what others think about her. Before “Beetle Juice” closes, she forewarns those trying to put her in harm’s way, “All y’all b*tches think y’all starting something/I think better not/Better stop ‘fore you get hit with these automatic Glocks.”
