Doechii is one of the brightest new stars of hip-hop who has a handful of EPs/mixtapes under her belt. The self-proclaimed Swamp Princess and rapper was one of the performers who lit up the stage at the 2022 BET Awards with her enticing single “Persuasive”. Also, a part of XXL’s ‘2022 Freshman Class,’ Doechii was the MTV Push Artist for July 2022.
Here is everything you need to know about the spitfire Tampa emcee.
Early Life of Doechii: Her Real Name, Age & Birthday
Born in the year 1998, Doechii, whose real name is Jaylah Hickmon, celebrates her birthday on the 14th of August. The 23-year-old rapper is originally from Tampa, Florida. As a Leo woman, Doechii is just like a regal Lioness, queenly in every way.
According to Doechii, her experience growing up in Tampa was really colorful. In May 2022, she told NME:
“My experience growing up in Tampa was really colorful, and being from the South, there’s a lot of culture.”
The Tampa-born artist attended Blake High School, where she learned ballet, tap dancing, acting, cheerleading, and gymnastics.
Doechii’s Rise To Stardom
Doechii wrote her first song when she was in the sixth grade. But she started making music professionally in 2015. The following year, she released her debut song “Girls” on SoundCloud under the pseudonym “Iamdoechii.” Three years later, she dropped her project “Coven Music Session Vol. 1.”
Doechii released her debut EP “Oh the Places You’ll Go” in 2020. One of the singles titled “Yucky Blucky” from the EP went viral on TikTok in 2021, earning her attention from many record labels. Her second EP “Bra-Less” came out in 2021.
Finally, Doechii signed with Capitol Records and Top Dawg Entertainment in March 2022. She then released her first song “Persuasive” through the latter and appeared as a featured artist on David Guetta and Afrojack’s song “Trampoline” alongside Missy Elliot and Bia. In April this year, she dropped the song “Crazy” along with a jaw-dropping music video, which marks the perfect introduction to an artist intent on smashing through all creative boundaries.
Doechii’s Family – Parents and Siblings
Though Doechii has been gaining a lot of attention lately, she has kept her parents’ identity away from the media and the public. Nothing much is known about her parents and other family members. All that is known is that her family lives in Florida.
In one of the interviews, Doechii revealed that her mother didn’t allow her to listen to secular music growing up. But now, she and her mother have an understanding, and her mother really supports her music, ideals, beliefs, and practices.
Doechii isn’t the single child of her parents; she was nurtured in her hometown alongside her siblings by her mother.
Doechii’s Love Life: Is She Dating Leo Conoza?
The 23-year-old rapper has remained silent about her relationship status. She hasn’t gone public about dating someone in interviews or on her social media handles. So, she could be single.
However, on 17 October 2020, Doechii did raise the eyebrows of many when she posted a picture with a fellow rapper, Leo Conoza. Although she didn’t mention Conoza as her boyfriend, fans were quick to gossip about their relationship, with some asserting that the two were actually a couple.
Most recently, on 27 June 2022, on the night of the BET Awards, Conoza posted a picture on his Instagram, where he can be seen kissing the forehead of Doechii. He captioned the photo “BET Awards 2022 🐊💗 Great job mama u stole the show.”
As the two seem to be very close to each other, Doechii could be dating Leo Conoza. But again, we would like to say that it’s just a presumption based on a couple of Instagram photos.
Doechii’s Net Worth – Is She Worth Millions?
Doechii has already been drawing comparisons to her idols – Azealia Banks, SZA, and Nicki Minaj. Considering how she has so far been monumental, she is likely to be about everywhere.
