Khia, aka Thug Misses, is set to drop her latest album Nasti Muzik. Known for her infamous 2002 smash club hit single, “My Neck, My Back,” and her recent appearance on VH1’s Miss Rap Supreme, Khia has returned to bring her sexually-driven lyrical prowess and southern charisma to her latest album. Nasti Muzik will be released August 19, 2008 on Fat Cat Records and Tommy Boy Distribution.
Featuring Khia’s straightforward attitude and no holds barred lyrical content, her latest effort is chock full of nasty tidbits, gritty raw beats, and Khia’s knack for outrageous storytelling. On “Be Your Lady” Khia’s rhymes about her latest male conquest leave nothing to the imagination: “We f#ck in the car / We f#ck in the house / I’ll fix you breakfast butt naked while you eatin’ me out.” The scandalous lyrics are dropped over a derrty Southern beat with a head-nodding club flow. The second single, “What They Do” featuring Gucci Mane, is steeped in synth keyboards and hand claps that act as a background for Khia and Gucci’s wild stories about nights in Atlanta’s strip clubs. Khia rhymes, “Drop low to your knees / Boy whistle on it / Then put that wood on it / Come in like you paid for it.” The album also features a series of skits, both musical and comedic, that confront Khia’s haters and are sure to spark new rivalries. On each track Khia commands the listener’s attention by being what she knows best; herself. Khia makes no attempt to fit into the mainstream mold or tone down her image to placate music execs or concerned parents. Instead, Khia is intent on an explicit musical revolution that is equal parts shocking and hilarious, all in the name of entertainment.
Born in Philadelphia and raised in Tampa, Florida, Khia now resides in Atlanta. Khia has been writing and singing rap, R&B and gospel her whole life. Her first brush with the hip-hop club scene began when she bartended at the trend setting club XS in Tampa. The bar was home to Wild 98.7 and served as the venue for the hottest local DJ and club shows. When Khia’s mother passed away in 2000 from kidney failure, Khia used her grief as a catalyst to kick her music career into action. In 2002 Khia wrote, produced, and released her debut album Thug Misses. Distributed by Artemis Records, but with no major label contract deal, Khia found success on her own terms despite not having “Top 40” radio play or PR team to gain exposure for her album. The now infamous single, “My Neck, My Back,” has sold 100,000 units to date and has been featured on numerous television shows and feature films. In 2005, she released her sophomore album Gangstress, which featured the single “Snatch the Cat Back.” Khia has also been featured on the Janet Jackson’s “So Excited” and Trick Daddy’s “Jodd.” Most recently Khia was featured on VH1’s Miss Rap Supreme and had an ongoing column with Allhiphop.com. Nasti Muzik was produced by Khia, Marlon “Big Cat” Rowe and Melvin “Birdman” Breeden. The album will be released on August 19, 2008.
