Tag: Katie Got Bandz
You can add another Chicago artist’s name to the roster of signed acts from the city, as Katie Got Bandz has just inked a deal with NYC-based label, eOne Music. The deal is part of a joint venture with Chicago’s Lawless Inc. (who also have a venture with Epic Records for King Louie), who plan to release Katie’s debut album on the label in 2014.
Katie’s stock has risen significantly over the last year, and the young artist has garnered a lot of attention thanks to her breakout single, “Pop Out,” which features Lawless labelmate, King Louie. “Pop Out” is without a doubt one of the hottest local songs of the year, so it’s nice to see a national outlet finally getting behind it. We said this six months ago: all this song needed was a bigger push. Well, now she’s getting it.
Says eOne CEO Alan Grunblatt: “Katie Got Bandz is one of the most exciting new artists to come our way in a long time. ‘Pop Out’ is a smash and we expect many more hit records from her.” eOne is currently the home to such artists as DJ Drama, N.O.R.E., Joe Budden, Styles P, Chris Webby and more.
The single is available for purchase on iTunes now (grab it here).
Bet you didn’t see this one coming, did you?
Kells brings it back to the Chi for the official remix of his single, “My Story”, and invites Katie Got Bandz and Rockie Fresh to tell their story too. Check out the remix below and keep an ear out for Kells’ Black Panties LP, due out December 10th.

Rapper/singer/hookmaster and all around wavy dude, ForteBowie, is planning to unleash his new project, #ViceHausDeluxe, on September 10th via DatPiff. You probably know Forte best for his work alongside his fellow T.I.G. labelmate Trinidad James, but on #ViceHausDeluxe he’s setting out to make waves on the solo tip.
Today he makes his FSD debut alongside KATIIIIE for “Gang Affiliated.” But don’t let the title deceive you — this isn’t just some trap/drill shit, this is pure new age R&B. Katie on an R&B-esque record? Yeah, this is a nice change of pace and dope look. Expect the unexpected on this one, and be sure to download his project on 9/10.
