Female Chicago emcee Katie Got Bandz released a video in which she responds to fans after a nude photo of the artist was circulated online.
“I apologize to all my fans,” Katie Got Bandz says in a video posted today (March 27). “I was messing with a goofy ass nigga. I was out of my element. I ain’t even know that picture was tooken. That shit was so long ago. I cut him off. He mad.”
The NSFW image shows an unclothed Katie sleeping in bed.
The video, which appeared on KollegeKidd.com, also included social media posts from fans in support of the driller.
“LBS that picture of Katie got Bandz in not hat horrible,” Twitter user @ShaQUIraaa_ writes. “All you see is Butt. Her tit covered and the vagina so ya’ll can stop bugging.”
Katie Got Bandz, real name Kiara Johnson, is one of Chicago’s Drill scene’s most prominent female performers. Her 2011 single, “I Need A Hitta,” got her on the radar of fellow driller King L. Katie has since signed alongside King L with Lawless, Inc.
The pair released the track “Pop Out” in 2013, which quickly gained traction in the Midwest.
Katie’s most recent mistaoe Coolin’ In Chiraq was released in December.
