With the rise of the internet, we saw the rise of something greater, memes.
You may think memes are just some harmless source of entertainment but Ka5sh, a professional meme maker, claims otherwise.
Now living in LA, the North Carolina native is going viral for his unusual occupation.
In a recent interview with NBC Ka5sh claims major music labels have contacted him to create memes around artists with upcoming albums:
“Let’s say like, Interscope wants me to make a pack of memes for a release for a certain rapper. And they want everyone to think that that rapper has a lot of like, buzz around them and that other people are making memes about them, but it’s really just me making a whole bunch of them and then them being dispersed through different accounts.”
Dude isn’t exactly wrong. Think back to “Hotline Bling” and all the attention Drake got from the incessant social media memes and gifs.
Here’s the lit interview he did with NBC.
"I've literally survived off of meme money this whole year"

Ka5sh posted this meme the same day Playboi Carti’s debut mixtape dropped:
When Ka5sh isn’t making memes he is also a rapper and artist who is definitely worth checking out.
His music video “I’m Depressed” is full of symbolism and flat out hilarious:
It’s no surprise labels have begun to market their artists through memes. As the rise in meme culture has exploded, nothing grabs your attention like a good meme.
Here are some of Ka5sh’s best memes.
Everyone’s favorite hot dog of course.
This is just one of many Chanel Westcoast memes that Ka5sh posts
Here’s my weekly reminder that Chanel Westcoast is the greatest of all time. Just last week she was introducing legislation to stop global warming. She drafted a bill that will hopefully just make global warming go somewhere else. No one ever thought about asking global warming like what are you doing here what’s your plan ? What do you hope to get from this? But she did. Next week she’s gonna go to the sky with congresses permission to talk to global warming and maybe just ask it to go to mars? She’s so good. If anyone has any other tips we can give to Chanel Westcoast on how to stop global warming pls comment below
Those khakis tho…
Hello everyone my name is Dave Welsby and my wife has been really weird to me lately. Ever since my birthday when she came home late and brought me subway for my birthday dinner she’s been avoiding me and doesn’t really acknowledge when I talk to her. It’s like I’ll say words and she hears just the last 2 sentences and just makes something up to make me think she was listening. Last night I was telling her about the new trains I was thinking about getting and after is asked her what she thought she said “Ah yeah you too honey! ” then rushed into the living room to talk on the phone. She hasn’t cooked cleaned or done laundry in weeks. Which is fine I don’t mind doing those things but she HATES when I do them. She’s never satisfied when I wash the dishes there’s always something she finds wrong so we agreed that she would just do cleaning stuff. I just don’t know what to do I had to wear these giant slacks to work today from my Halloween costume last year ( I was Micheal Klump one of micheal scotts characters from my favorite tv show the office) and everyone laughed at me. What is my wife up to why is she acting so strange to me what can I do to fix this?
