Kash Doll Says She’s Experienced Colorism For 1st Time – This Guy Wouldn’t Clear My Beat Unless I Get Another A Lighter Complexion Woman On The Hook!
Kash Doll is one of the latest artists to experience colorism in the industry. She revealed her moment on Twitter and wrote,
“It’s crazy i remember saying i haven’t witnessed Colorism just yet in the industry… well it happened! This guy don’t even wanna clear this beat Bc of my skin tone or unless i get another woman on the hook that’s a lighter complexion… just wanted to share that with u guys”
Her tweet came just after rapper Tory Lanez shared a video of a dark skin woman being removed from a scene of a video shoot and replaced with a lighter-toned woman.

This is an On -Going problem in our community of entertainment that needs to stop . As a black man , Sometimes I’m going to joke about the black community just like we all do . BUT WHAT IM NOT GOING TO DO IS ALLOW ANY OF THESE DIRECTORS TO DE-VALUE OUR BLACK WOMEN … countless times I’ve seen directors swap out our women of color for women of lighter complexion, or women with straighter hair ETC . … IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY AS ARTIST TO STAND UP AND NOT LET THIS HAPPEN .. it’s BEEN time to embrace our woman of color #BlackIsBeautiful
Interestingly enough, Kash Doll said back in September that she didn’t believe in colorism because she hadn’t experienced it yet.
“Lol Cuban and dream are not bigger artist than me… secondly i believe in God and his timing.. i will not let Society make me believe my fine a** skin tone is the reason I’m not as big of an artist….Oprah is black! Anything is possible be positive! I had legal issues love”
It looks like her experience caused her to have a change of heart.
What do you think about Kash Doll’s run-in with colorism?
