That also meant exclusivity was essential: “If you wanted to see me strip, you had to come to where we were to see it.”This shrewd attention to the duo’s branding also explains why Chyna was so upset when World Star Hip Hop put a video on its website of her stripping at a DJ Khaled party at KOD back in 2011.
“We [Chyna and her manager] have told them in the past that I don’t want anything to do with being a World Star Hip-Hop honey.
Their timelines run parallel, separated by class, race, and an insider’s knowledge of the business.

The Kardashians have long acquired their spots at these tables by “borrowing” from black culture.Whether it’s Kylie’s magically enhanced lips, Khloe’s (newly) “enviable” backside, or Kim’s “boxer braids,” the sisters latch onto elements of the black aesthetic they find trendy, and then mainstream outlets report as if it were the Kardashians who started the trends.But to really understand Chyna’s rise, let’s look at where she started.In the hierarchy of strip clubs, Miami’s King of Diamonds is at the top.It is a phenomenon people of color, especially black people, have seen occur again and again throughout the years: When white people discover black cultural markers, the same look that had been popular within an ethnic culture for decades (or even hundreds of years) is suddenly “a new trend.” The pattern of “Columbusing” isn’t unique to the Kardashians, but the extent to which the family has profited from it is remarkable.This element of cultural appropriation in the Kardashians’ style has left many feeling like they created an empire using things that don’t belong to them.The fact that Chyna chose to avoid that particular route speaks to her foresight: She could have easily been on a number of We TV and/or VH1 reality shows if she wanted to, but she had her eyes set on a different prize.Born Angela Renée White on May 11, 1988, Chyna was raised in Maryland before moving to Miami to attend Johnson & Wales University.No one does this better than the Kardashian/Jenners, the Lannisters of Calabasas.They keep us glued to their Twitter beefs and hooked on their Instagram selfies.
