FSD: Who are some people you’re listening to now?
Katie: Well, definitely Chicago is number one. I rarely listen to those other people’s music, but I’m rockin’ with Keef (Chief Keef), I listen to Louie (King Louie), Fatzmack, Sasha (Sasha Go Hard), Chella H., Yale (Yale Lucciani). I’m rockin’ with everybody for real though. That’s what’s wrong with Chicago now, people got certain people who they rockin’ with instead of following the whole movement. If everybody would just support each other then everybody can get on.
FSD: Definitely. The Chicago “Drill” scene is starting to get a lot of national recognition. How do you feel about it going from a local movement to something that the rest of the world is just getting familiar with it?
Katie: Man. I love to see people make it, especially if they’re from Chicago and doing something positive. I’m from the Low End — Ida B. Wells to be more specific — and even though you got haters I still get a lot of love. I mean, you’re always going to have haters trying to down you and making foul comments on your videos and stuff like that. What they fail to realize is that’s just motivation. “How you keep saying all my music weak, but yet you listening to everything, tuning into everything and taking your time out to comment.” I love haters. Haters is fans too.
FSD: I know you catch a lot of flack for waving a gun around in Shady’s “Go In” video and you were recently incarcerated for 32 days. Was the video and your recent incarceration related?
Katie: Nah, they weren’t. Those were two separate occasions. I was locked up for a gun charge though and had a court date not too long ago, but I get my actual trial date soon and the case is still pending.
FSD: For the people who aren’t too familiar with the lingo, can you elaborate a bit on the term “hitta”?
Katie: A hitta is basically a rider. The difference between a hitta and a drilla is a hitta is actually someone who hits the target, whatever that may be. A drilla is just someone who just shoots, with no target in mind.
FSD: Ahhhhh ok. Ok. So if you had a choice you would want to be a hitta as compared to a drilla, right?
Katie: Yeaaaaaahhhhh. You see I said I’m a lady hitta, right?
