Khia, the female rapper best known for her 2002 hit "My Neck, My Back (Lick It)," has signed with Atlanta-based indie label Big Cat Records.

"Nasty Muzik," her first album under the new pact, is due in late spring. Lead single "What They Do," featuring Gucci Mane, will go to radio in February.

Following the earlier release of two albums on her own indie label TME (Thug Misses Entertainment), Khia resurfaced on the mainstream charts in 2006 with a cameo on Janet Jackson's single "So Excited." Previous Big Cat releases include Gucci Mane's first three albums as well as the reggae compilation "Top of Di Top" featuring Buju Banton and Elephant Man.
