-From San Francisco, California.
-An artist who quickly evolved from parody to indie, Chicago-born rapper K. Flay first grabbed the mic while a student at Stanford University in California.
It was the frivolous topics and misogynistic lyrics she saw in mainstream rap that first drove her to record a parody of the genre, but she was surprised by both her talent and how much she enjoyed recording. She spent the rest of the year recording and writing, spent her sophomore year performing, and in her junior year, she dropped her debut album, 2004's Suburban Rap Queen. Five years later, her second effort, Mashed Potatoes, appeared with backing tracks that were more electro- and indie-oriented, a style that remained in place for 2011's I Stopped Caring In '96. In 2013, she made her major-label debut with the What If It Is EP on RCA.
