Khia is set to drop her long awaited sophomore release Gangstress, her
first album in four years.
The Thug Misses Entertainment/Warlock Records disc set will arrive in stores
on July 11 and features self-production from Khia, who hit big with the single
“My Neck, My Back” in 2002.
The first single,
“Snatch The Cat Back,” is currently in rotation throughout the South,
and the video will be released this month.
“I produced the whole album, only working with engineers J.A. and John
Miller in Atlanta,” revealed Khia to AllHipHop.com. “I was in control
getting my own partnership with Warlock Records - they love the CD. I’m
real excited about everyone seeing that I was hands on with the production.”
“I had fun when I wrote this album, it’s real versatile,” says
Khia of Gangstress. “I did a lot of different types of tracks. The
first album was kind of sexual, a lot of different stuff with relationships.
This album I did club tracks, fun party tracks. I took different avenues and
mixed it up this time. The people that thought I was a one hit wonder will see
the different range that I went in with this album, and see that I am a lyricist.”
In addition to her album, Khia is reportedly working on penning a new book to
be released this Christmas entitled Gangsta Love, with the plot centering
on her life story.
A 40-city tour is also being planned to support her new CD.
