The Come Up: Katie Got Bandz

On how she got started:

Katie Got Bandz: “Katie comes from the name of an American Girl Doll and the Got Bandz part came from my friend Beanz.

“I always wanted to rap. I didn’t start until I was 17, but I grew up around my cousin BlockOnDaTrakk and spent a lot of time in the studio with him. I always wanted to do it but when I started I wasn’t really taking it serious.

“My friends and family are who motivated me to keep at it right after I dropped “I Need a Hitta” though. People really liked that song more than I thought they would and that’s what inspired me to keep going. Of course there were others who doubted me and said I’d never get anywhere with this but that just made me want to go harder.”
