Yesterday (Apr. 15), Detroit rapper Kash Doll released her mini-movie “Hustla.” 

The song and mini-movie chronicles Kelly, a stripper, who ends up experiencing the darker side of being an exotic dancer.

“I’m not glorifying that life. I’m talking about the things that girls had to do, that I’ve seen,” Kash Doll told Billboard regarding why she decided to create “Hustla.” “And I’ve never seen [those girls] again because of the things that they’ve done. The things that they got paid to do. To this day, I never seen this girl named Mocha because she set a guy up to get robbed, took him home to have sex with him.”

Kash Doll continued, “It’s not what people think. It’s not. You playing with a man like that? He will kill you. I think there’s a big disconnect. That’s why I’m doing the Kelly Chronicles so girls can know. If they do go in there, and it is a stepping stone, the girls will know what to do and what not to do.”
