As we wait on the W.W.A.’s Straight Outta Chicago album, the quartet consisting of Sasha Go Hard, Lucci Vee, Katie Got Bandz and Chella H continue to churn out content. They recently got together to film their new video for “No Reason,” at various locations around the Chi including Complex 2010.

We’re not exactly sure when the collaborative album is dropping, but they hint that it will be very soon. Did you miss our interview with the W.W.A.? You should check it out here if so.

FSD Feature: We Talk to W.W.A. About the Origins of the Group, New Project & More

A few weeks back, rap fans we’re surprised by the announcement of a new Chicago supergroup, W.W.A.. After all, it’s exciting when artists at the top of their games decide to come together and focus their efforts on one common goal. Over the years, many Chicago supergroups have been formed (Blaxploitation, United Center), but few (read: none) have seen a project through to completion. It’s a rarity. But W.W.A. vows to change that.

What is W.W.A. you ask? Well, it’s a new collective made up of some of the Chi’s most notable female emcees: Chella H, Sasha Go Hard, Katie Got Bandz and Lucci Vee. Women With Attidues. Yes, this quartet (of sorts) has decided to put their egos to the side to form a powerful group that fashion themselves the modern day N.W.A. And with all of the buzz surrounding the Straight Outta Compton film, their Straight Outta Chicago project has landed at the best moment possible. Perfect timing.

We figured the FSD readers would be intrigued as to how this group came together, so we decided to sit down with Sasha, Chella and Lucci to learn about the origins of the collective. We discuss their formation, what’s in store for the project, absent female emcees and much more. It’s required reading. Trust us.

Video: WWA [Katie Got Bandz, Chella H, Sasha Go Hard & Lucci Vee] – Straight Outta Chicago

Directed by APJ Films

The debut video from the newly formed Chicago supergroup WWA is here. Chella, Katie, Sasha and Lucci, and they’re “Straight Outta Chicago.” The track naturally flips the NWA original, and has Emmaculate playing Dr. Dre’s role behind the boards. It’s a 2015 spin on a 1988 classic — and just in time for the release of the NWA biopic tomorrow. Synergy!

Chella H, Sasha Go Hard, Katie Got Bandz & Lucci Vee Announce New Group & Album

11374565_1476753622638289_951903218_n

Tonight, it was announced that four of Chicago’s top female emcees are joining forces like Voltron to form the supergroup, WWA — which I’m guessing stands for Women With Attitudes. I hope so, at least. It’s only fitting we get a WWA just days before the release of the great NWA biopic, Straight Outta Compton. Great timing.

The good news is that Sasha, Katie, Chella and Lucci have all placed their egos to the side to put together this new album titled, Straight Outta Chicago. It’s also rumored to be dropping via Twista’s GMG label, distributed through Empire. Wild, right? It appears they’ve already been in the lab working, have handled some photo shoots and have a full plan in place to rollout their endeavor. Let’s hope they follow through and execute, as most supergroups never make it off the ground floor.

Sidebar: Remember HWA? They were signed to Ruthless way back in the day. All I can say is that we’re thankful we’re finally getting a WWA — ladies doing it the right way.

Sidebar 2: Who is their DJ Yella?
