Musical career

 

Katie is the debut female rapper of Chicago’s drill music scene, though she has announced plans to transition her music to a more global sound. In several interviews she spoke of the poor reputation Chicago has with respect to crime and violence and the attack of drill music as a result. Katie has said that her intention with drill music is to portray her authentic experience and emphasizes she does not want to influence crime or contribute to the already high crime rate in Chicago through her music.

 

Her upcoming project Drillary Clinton 3 is slated for a late 2015 release, and she intends to transition her sound with this project while paying homage to drill music at the same time.
