Chinese Kitty aka Taylor Hing has every single trait necessary to be a star in this industry. Attitude, passion, and charisma are only a few of the qualities that have gotten her this far. With over 2.8 million followers collectively and counting the Chinese and Guyanese rapper is ready to convert her social media fame to musical success. First, she started in the industry as a model and then transitioned to music videos. Early on it was clear that Chinese Kitty was a showstopper as she became the lead for artists like Young Dolph, Fabolous, and even Ludacris. Next, like LeBron James, she took her talents to South Beach and created a strong fan base during her time on VH1’s Love & Hip-Hop Miami.
Her first project As If spawned major fan favorites like “On Me” and “Fleek of the Week.” Fast forward to today, Chinese Kitty cannot even walk through the New York streets without being asked for pictures and autographs. Her latest single “Hitstick” is on constant rotation and has received co-signs from many of the industry’s brightest stars. Chinese Kitty is simply the full package. She’s ambitious, talented, and attractive. More importantly, she’s hungry and humble and this is what will take her far. I was lucky enough to get the chance to talk to her about her come-up, inspirations, and next steps going into the next phase of her career.
