Kash listened, and he learned. He studied, and he continued to master his craft. And even though the path for him was laid out with the backing of his most ardent supporter, the youngster remained humble. From the time he was 17 years old, he worked contractual jobs — a Sleep Number store, moving jobs and an Airbnb clean-up crew, among them — to help make ends meet. Kash did what he had to do to keep his dream alive.

Then suddenly, tragedy struck in 2015 when his best friend and manager was shot and killed.

“That set me back [awhile], and I kind of drifted away from music for a minute because I was lost,” he admits. “I didn’t know what else to do. When you go from being with somebody every day, staying with them and then for them to leave, you go into a dark space. So, I went through a dark space for a good little minute, but I finally came out because everybody wanted me to keep going. … You’re gonna face obstacles. But you just got to keep going.

“Even though it took me 10 years to get to right here today, I feel like those 10 years kind of prepared me for what’s going on right now. I would change, of course, losing my best friend, but anything other than that, I wouldn’t change nothing in this process of where I’m at today.”

Indeed back on track and armed with a viral smash to boot, BRS Kash is exactly where he said he would be 10 years ago. And if you haven’t already copped his debut mixtape, Kash Only, which was released Jan. 22, 2021, its capable orator is confident it will win you over.

“The project is fun-filled,” he says. “You gon’ dance to it. You’re going to feel all type of ways. You’re just about to see who BRS Kash really is as an artist.”
