Name: Kiara Danielle Celestine
Born in: Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Raised in both cities Lake Charles and Baton Rouge. Moved to Lake Charles around the age 7 and attended Oak Park Elementary, Oak Park Middle and Washington Marion Magnet High School.
I have two older sisters and two younger brothers. I was raised in a single parent household. Sometimes it felt like a double life in Lake Charles with my mom all we saw was how to get it without a man the legal way. And in Baton Rouge we saw how to hustle and get it the illegally, I mean it just no limits food had to be on the table.
I found my love for music and writing in 6th grade where I started writing poems, my influence to poetry was Lauryn Hill and I admired the way Missy Elliot was super different as an artist and how Trina Kim and Eve just had that it is what it is aura about them. When Nicki Minaj came in the game she made me want to RAP RAP like fuck poetry rap man.
I also played violin for 4 years and competed in competitions, oh I was first chair shorty ! Cheerleading and track were my extra curricular activities.
Fighting felt like a class I had to pass going to Washington Marion but it made me who I am today. I bet nobody try me. Lol
During high school I started pursuing music and recorded my first song in a basement it was a cover to Meek Mill’s “I’m a boss”. My stage name was “Kaycee” and I continued to shoot freestyle videos to put them out on YouTube. I told myself that once I graduated high school, i would move to Houston, Tx and become a superstar rapper. Things didn’t quite turn out that way so I moved back to Baton Rouge two months after graduation where I started getting in trouble and had my daughter who is now 6 years old.
At the age of 17, I moved to Atlanta, Ga with my three month old daughter (at the time) and lost passion for music.
I became a fitness trainer and built a name for myself even started training grammy nominated singer/songwriter Rico Love. After, about 3 years of building in Atlanta life took a turn suddenly on New Year’s Eve going into 2019 to where my life was almost taken. Imagine hearing fireworks going off and you are thinking, I’ll never see 2019. But God had other plans. After I recovered in the hospital I moved to Houston Tx, and the only thing that kept me going was writing music.
How ironic, I’m in Houston where I originally said I would start pursuing music in the first place. Life doubled back.
Once I mentally told myself ok it’s time to get back up and continue with life I found a recording studio where I recorded my first single called “Freestyle”. I originally dropped it just on IG but people liked it so much certain clubs started playing it. DjMr.Rogers played a big role into getting my song played by different djs because of his influence in the Houston nightlife.
Handstand was a single that I released in June 2019 and gained more attention with it being a strip club song. I then gained the support of DjErjc which is another heavily influence in Houston NightLife.
My first ever performance was opening up for BurnaBoy in September 2019. Killed that. Then, November 7,2019 I dropped my first EP called “You ain’t heard Yet”. Which was mostly produced by BNOVA.
My single off that EP was “In my bag” which I released the visual for it in 2020.
We pushed that single and while being locked down on quarantine I started working with known producers such as DJCHOSE, XONOSLEEP, JUNE JAMES and more.
My next single that started gaining traction and still is growing into the success we know it will be is “Bend It”.
Early October of 2020, I was recognized by one of my favorite artist out right now which is Da Baby. He asked was I signed I responded “Not yet what you wanna do”?
And it really been up ever since. The video of “Bend It” is out now on Da Baby’s YouTube. Now it’s just time to get these songs out to the world and take over.
I’m the First Lady of Billion Dollar Baby ent , what’s bigger than that?
