The Definitive Kat Stacks Interview: Sex, Slaps & Soulja [Part One]

Andrea Herrera is pretty boring. Just ask. She'll admit it. But toss a flipcam her way during an underage liquor binge and her ho-hum self will readily collapse to the floor.

Now for the fun part.

Kat Stacks is the Internets one-woman murk machine. World Star Hip-Hop's sadistic daughter. A certified rapper-eater. Superhead's spawn. Since the start of the year, Kat's kept industry relevance by playing the role of a scorned tell-all groupie. From Fabolous to Bow Wow to her latest victim Soulja Boy, the 20-year-old Venezuelan mother is ruthless when it comes to outing those she feels have done her wrong. In a two-part (sober) interview, hip-hop's most hated reveals herself from all angles—motivation, regrets and fantasies. Think before you touch. This Kat bites. —Tracy Garraud

VIBE: Obviously you’ve got quite a name going for yourself. For the most part, there are two routes someone can take to achieve fame—the purposeful and the accidental. What was yours?

Kat Stacks: When I first started blasting these people… I never expected to do this. One night I was drunk and my home-girl told me to make a video on YouTube when my Twitter got hacked and I had no access to the Internet to speak out. I just made the video drunk, but I didn’t have the [intention] to do all this. 

You were drunk for every video?

Yes, each time [laughs]. I’m a very violent, wild drunk. So the first time the public saw that side of me, that’s what they liked and that’s the only time I could let anything out there without caring about anyone’s feelings.

So what are you like sober?

Other people and rappers who meet me say ‘Why aren’t you wild? Why are you boring?’ And I’m like cause I’m sober and they’re like well you need to start drinking [laughs]. 

During your radio interview last week, you mentioned that your pimp, who’s also the father of your child, gave you the name Kat Stacks. What’s the story behind that? 

Pimps usually have to name their girls. He named me Kat because when he was younger he had a cat that would get jealous every time he brought bitches around. He just said I reminded him of his cat. And then the Stacks came from… Monday through Thursday you had to make at least a thousand every night. You can’t come home without a thousand. And Friday, Saturday, Sunday you had to bring two thousand. And I was bringing stacks home every night.

What’s it like when Andrea Herrera is sobered up watching Kat Stacks?

Nas Gives Travis Scott Advice On Addressing Politics In 'Playboy'

Playboy unveiled its "The Speech Issue" on Monday (Mar. 18), which included a thoughtful conversation between Nas and Travis Scott. During their lengthy conversation, the two discussed the debate regarding hip-hop's generational gap, politics, and more hot topics.

Scott kicked off the discussion by commending hip-hop veterans on paving the way for younger artists. "The past generation knocked down so many doors where, you know, they were spitting a lot of pain, man," La Flame said. "They was dealing with a lot of police stuff. We’re still dealing with that now, but it wasn’t so free. Now we got more of a voice at the label."

Nas appeared to agree with Scott. "Nowadays the pain has changed. We’re after different things. We broke past the barriers," he added. "We understand what we need to do and we’re in control of what we’re doing, and no one can stop it now. No one can tell us what to do, what we can’t do. Rap music can’t be stopped now."

The conversation then shifted to politics and an artists's obligation to speak up about the things they believe in. The "Sicko Mode" rapper reached out for advice, suggesting that he was a little confused on how to tackle such a big topic. "I wouldn’t say I don’t feel compelled to speak on political issues; sometimes you just don’t want to speak too much on stuff you don’t know much about," Trav explained. "It’s not like I’m not thinking about what’s going on in the world. I’m an expressive artist, but with media and shit, it gets misconstrued."

Scott previously received backlash for performing at the 2019 Super Bowl Halftime Show instead of standing in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick. Despite public outrage, Nas asserted that the decision to speak up should always come naturally and not depend on outside opinions. "One thing we can’t allow politics to do is take over our mind and make us fall into their game. What’s going on in the news could consume our lives. If that happens, life doesn’t go on," the Queens native said in response.

Nas also noted that hip-hop and the "hood" will always serve as a voice for the underrepresented. "Those 'hoods are always going to yell out and say what’s going on," he continued. "It’s going to get more fly and futuristic. But the message is always: We want food, shelter, health care and all the things we’re deprived of. We want no police brutality. We want all these things. That’s what hip-hop is talking about."
