Rasheeda had an early start to her career as an adolescent. She and two of her friends formed the hip-hop girl group Da Kaperz and were signed with recording label D-Lo Entertainment, with whom she continues to work with. Just a year later, Rasheeda began her career as a solo artist.
2001-04: Dirty South & A Ghetto Dream
On March 27, 2001, she released her album Dirty South, through D-Lo & Motown Records. The album featured guest appearances from Pastor Troy, Thugz Nation, Nelly & Re-Re. The album achieved some notoriety, due to the success of her first single "Do It". Dirty South would place Rasheeda firmly in the southern hip-hop genre.
Rasheeda further refined her sound with her second album, 2002's A Ghetto Dream, an independent release under her label D-Lo after leaving Motown Records. A Ghetto Dream features faster rhythms, bolder beats, and assistance from Lil' Jon and the Eastside Boyz. In 2004, Rasheeda was featured on Petey Pablo's single "Vibrate" & Nivea's single "You Like It Like That".
2006: GA Peach
On April 25, 2006 Rasheeda released her third album, GA Peach. The album is known for Rasheeda paying homage to her southern hip-hop roots, and rapping more intimate lyrics combined with a slightly slower rhythm. Rasheeda was featured on Nivea's Complicated.
2007-09: Dat Type of Gurl & Certified Hot Chick
On June 19, 2007 Rasheeda released her fourth album, Dat Type of Gurl. The album gained much success due to the success of her first single from the album "Got That Good (My Bubble Gum)", originally featured on GA Peach. Rasheeda reprised some of her earlier works from GA Peach, and many of her old tracks were updated with remixes & samples. In 2007, Rasheeda was featured on Mims single "Like This". Also in 2007 Rasheeda & singer/writer/reality star Kandi Burruss created a group called Peach Candy, but the group would later disband due to both artist's busy schedules.
In the summer of 2009, D-Lo Entertainment partnered with independent record label Block Starz Music to release Rasheeda's debut mixtape Certified. On August 18, 2009 Rasheeda would release her fifth album Certified Hot Chick. She would later start releasing her Boss Bitch Music series mixtapes.
2012-present: Boss Chick Music
On June 18, 2012, she released her sixth album Boss Chick Music which was released through Google Play and her label D-Lo Entertainment, and promoted on the tenth season of Bad Girls Club (season 10) and Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta. Her first single from the album was entitled "Marry Me" and her second single was "Legs To The Moon", both of which were followed by a music video. In 2013 during the second of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, Rasheeda shot a music video for "Hit It From The Back".
