KANDICE K*A*S*H IS
KALLING ALL SOULJAHZ
the young age of 10, and then moved to
Toronto, Canada at 16 years old. Residing in
Malvern Scarborough, that’s where I developed
my talents and fell in love with Reggae music.
Cash rules everything around me, cream get
the money. My peers called me Cashmoney
because that was always my focus in all things.
Then in 2003 I got baptized and decided to
make a change in my life. I repurposed myself
and my nickname for a new mission ‘Kalling All
Souljahz Home’. I believe home is where the
heart is and as a Soul for Jah, I needed to
change my priorities and put God first. My new
purpose is to create music that will change the
heart of man. Who have eyes will see and those
who have ears will hear the messages being
sent from the Most High God from within.
RX: When did you start singing and why reg-
KK: I grew up in a musical family, so my love for
music was inevitable. I started singing in church
at a very young age and when I migrated to
NYC at the tender age of 10, I got more inter-
ested in R&B, Jazz/Soul and Hip Hop music. In
moving to Canada I started off writing R&B
songs and eventually changed my style to reg-
gae after deciding to change my purpose in life.
Why Reggae? I’m not sure why, because I’m
very versatile and I can sing most genres of
music. Reggae soothes my soul and it feels
more comfortable for me to bring the message I
have stored within.
RX: Do you write your own songs? What or
who inspires you?
KK: I am a singer and songwriter, the majority
of the lyrics from my tracks I wrote myself. I do
have collaborations in writing with others, but I
do most of the writings myself. My new inspira-
tion is my children. I have two sons Kalani and
Kyan and I do this for them. They’re my muses.
RX: Who is Kandice K*A*S*H? How did you
come by your name?
KK: KANDICE K*A*S*H is a singer songwriter
born on July 18 in the city of Port-of-Spain,
Trinidad and Tobago. I grew up on the Hills of
Laventille, Block 22 and lived in Gonzales
Village, Guapo. I migrated to New York City at
RX: Tell us about the making of your single
“Spliff and Mi Lighta”.
KK: Originally the lyrics were written for an
R&B/Hip-Hop music project that an Author from
Toronto was working on for one of their books
called “Videolight”. I later re-recorded the track
on the Reggae Land Riddim and it was released
by Street Digital.
RX: How many singles or albums have you
released to date?
KK: Hmm, I’ve released over five singles to
date but haven’t released an official album as
yet. That’s still to come.
RX: What are your short and long term goals
for your music career?
KK: Short term goals are to release an album
and launch my official website; long term goals
are to create positive works that will enable me
to tour the Earth musically, to see many places
and put smiles on all the many faces.
RX: Challenges you face as a female reggae
KK: Hmm, well ‘they say’ it’s a man’s world but
it ain’t nothing without the women. As a female
reggae artiste it’s not easy in the Canadian
music fraternity. I can only speak for myself but
I feel like I’m sometimes overlooked or under-
rated because I am a female and not because
of my musical abilities.
RX: Tell us something about Kandice that we
KK: Well, you don’t know that my family calls

musical career with God’s Grace.
