Casha Monet Darjean was a Compton-born singer who first came to prominence as a member of the R&B/hip-hop trio Candy Hill. According to her MySpace page, her heritage was a mix of African-American, French, Native American and Will Smith (she was a niece of Will Smith and cousin of Trey, Willow and Jaden Smith). Darjean was also a person of numerous, sometimes conflicting interests; also noted on her MySpace page is her status being "In a Relationship," while also maintaining that she was on MySpace for "Dating" (in addition to "Networking," "Serious Relationships," and "Friends"). The group scored a minor hit with "Juicy" in 2007. The group disbanded as Darjean pursued a solo career. She sang on several tracks on rapper Yung Berg's 2008 album Look What You Made Me, including "The Business" and "If You Only Knew." Around the same time she announced on her MySpace page that her debut album would be released "sometime in late 2008 or early 2009;" to date, no album has been released. In 2010 she reemerged as an artist signed to Radio Killa Records (with distribution via Def Jam). Singer and producer The-Dream came out in support of her by writing and producing her December 2010 release, the frenetic single "Gangsta."
To be clear, Casha Monet is not to be confused with Kache Monet, a male rapper from either Fort Worth, TX or somewhere in the Midwest.
