Brooklyn rapper DonMonique starts 2019 with a video for “Black Kate Moss,” a single from her “Black Kate Moss” EP, released in November 2018. Directed by Kyle Rogers, the video reveals a sexier side of the hard-spitting Don, who’s shot taking a bubble bath while sipping bubbly.
Following a two-year hiatus from the music industry that included dropping her management team, Don told Noisey the EP was a testament to her overcoming challenges, including dealing with an ectopic pregnancy. She explained, “I found out I was carrying twins. I was like this close to dying. I was two months, and as the baby grows, the [Fallopian] tube will burst and you’ll bleed to death. The first time I went to the doctor, they said it was just a miscarriage. They sent me home but ran tests, and three days later, they called me at seven in the morning like, “Nah, you gotta come to the hospital right now.”
As for the reference to Moss rather than a black model, Don said, “I always felt like I could relate to Kate Moss so much. She wasn’t like the other models. She was short. She was in the back of the club with her cigarette. I’m on my Kate Moss shit with my cigarette and my blunt. I’m really different from the girls who are out now. Everyone’s so sexy with the fat ass. Naomi was more girly. I’m not that, or at least not yet. I’m on my Kate Moss shit.”
