Arkeisha “Kash Doll” Knight is about to flex her acting chops!
The Detroit rapper has landed a recurring role in 50 Cent‘s forthcoming Starz drama series, “Black Mafia Family.”
According to Deadline, “Black Mafia Family” is inspired by the true story of two brothers who rose from the decaying streets of southwest Detroit in the late 1980’s and gave birth to one of the most influential crime families in this country.
Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory’s charismatic leadership, Terry “Southwest T” Flenory’s business acumen and the fraternal partnership’s vision beyond the drug trade and into the world of Hip Hop would render the brothers iconic on a global level.
Their unwavering belief in family loyalty would be the cornerstone of their partnership and the crux of their eventual estrangement. The series is about love, kinship and capitalism in the pursuit of the American dream.
Kash Doll will play the role of Monique, a paralegal for the biggest defense attorney in Detroit and a strong single mom determined to give her daughter a better life. When it comes to being a parent, she’s a practical provider. But away from work and home Monique is creative, adventurous, and one of Demetrius Flenory’s lovers.
But Meech and Monique’s relationship is much more than just sex and pillow talk: Monique’s firm represents some of the biggest drug dealers in the city, which gives Meech and Terry an advantage in their rise through the streets.
Russell Hornsby and Steve Harris have also joined the cast.
