Valentine's Day Special: Kirko Bangz Talks Women, Hoes and More Hoes
"I was just talking about a certain type of female that we have in 2014. It's been around forever, actually I didn’t say it was a bad thing for a female to be a hoe , you know, and I’m aware of that that's not the only type of woman --but about them hoes. They're everywhere, I'm just reporting them."
The Houston rapper is gearing up to release his debut album and head on tour with fellow Houston native, Bun B. While we don't know too much about him besides his music and looks, he promises there's more than meets the eye. With music that promises enough women will throw their panties and/or any object to gain affection from this tatted heartthrob, we sat down with him to find out his perspective on women and music. An aficionado with the hoes, Kirk has no problem talking about all sorts of women, including celebrity crushes (hint: it's everyone's fav. bad gal).

What is the one girl you would probably turn down whether it is looks or personality?
Man, personality. I hate girls who be talking down on other people like, 'look what she got on' or 'look at that.' I hate girls like that.
I was scrolling through your Instagram; how do you deal with all the comments?
I look at every single one of them.
I look at every single one of them, all the time. Sometimes I want to respond; some of them girls be fun, so I be wanting to respond, but it’s like I can’t go nowhere once I respond anyway. So I just be looking.
You aren’t afraid of those 'You look better on Instagram' girls?
Oh, that sh*t happened to me before. I had gone to this concert and I never take girls with me. I just be always rocking with my homies cause I'm like I'm gonna find somebody wherever I’m going. So one time I told this one girl to come through. I should have known because she had to catch a taxi to get over there and we in Texas; people don't catch taxis. She got to the door I was like, "No, sir!" I walked up to her and was like, "aye hold up we gonna be right back, we going to go swimming real fast."
You got catfished?
She looked bad; she had lipstick on her teeth- it was bad. I was like, "you did not look like this on Instagram." She looked good, but all her pictures be in angles.
So what kind of girl do you prefer?
I like a natural chick. I don't like that makeup. You could wear a little bit of it, but I hate makeup. I hate when I see a girl and she looks good regular, but when it’s time for her to go out, she be having all that damn makeup on. But you can’t tell her, "you got on a lot of makeup."
What inspired "Hoe?"
I was just talking about a certain type of female that we have in 2014. It's been around forever, actually. I didn’t say it was a bad thing for a female to be a hoe, and I’m aware that, that's not the only type of woman--I’m not saying all girls are hoes. You have people who go to school, people with jobs like you, people who go to church every day, take care of their kids. I was raised by a single mother, so I understand the struggle and I glorify a woman that’s getting her job done. But about them hoes: they're everywhere. I'm just reporting them. I'm just saying what y'all ain't saying [or] what y'all say on Instagram, what y'all put in your memes. Im just reporting what's going on in the world.
Thought about wifing a hoe, but you didn't know she was a hoe?
When I had a girlfriend, she was a stripper, so that lets you know.
So you love hoes?
No I don’t love hoes! [laughs] I just loved strippers at that point of time. I told you it was tragic! It wasn’t supposed to go down like that .. I lost myself, but I'm good. I had my 'in love with hoes' little problem. Every ni**a done had that; don’t let them lie to you. I admit to my faults. I kick it with hoes, but I understand what they are.
Would you respect a chick if she was just like, " Man, I'm a hoe!”
I know girls to this day who be like that after you do something with them.. They be like, “Damn, I’m such a hoe". Man, you know how it is now. Everything is social networks. These [chicks] get on there with a fake ass, get about 15 thousand followers, that’s that [chick] everybody want, she got no school or education. She ain't got nothing going on for her, but shit, she’s famous. She gonna make it like that.
Who's the bigger whore? Men or women?
Men, for sure. I can f*ck every [chick] I want to fuck, but I’m not going to be a hoe; I’m gonna be a player. But if a girl do that you a hoe, it’s fucked up that it's like that. A lot of times it's because dudes are sensitive, so they will be quick to call a girl a hoe, if she don’t want to talk to you no more or she got a new ni**a.
Now I remember Draya said that you can erase your "hoeness." Is that true?
I mean it is something that you "did;" it is not what [you're doing]. If you change it up , why can’t we better ourselves? You can come out of jail and get a job or come out of jail and become a rap star. She ain't about that life no more. I respect it.
What's your perfect girl?
Somebody that can inspire me and can make me want to be a better person. Someone who has something going for herself.
You said you were raised by your mom. How does your mom feel about your dating life?
She met the stripper. But my mom, she lets me make my own decisions. She always let me go through my own thing. When I was in high school, me and mom sat down and we made a list of all the girls I was talking to and it came out to like 19 girls. My mom was like, 'boy you got a problem." My mom used to pass out my mixtapes in beauty supply stores while I was in college and I didn’t know. My mom supports everything; the good, the bad; she’s just happy to see her kids turn into something good.
Are you overwhelmed by all that's happened?
Yeah, like right now, just how everybody responding to me now, it's crazy. It's a blessing and a curse. Anytime I’m somewhere with a lot of rappers, I’m like what the f*ck is going on, this is crazy. I always catch myself sitting around 'like man this shit really happened'. I really can’t believe I m a rapper.
Have you ever been star struck?
Rihanna. I had a concert and she was there. She was looking at me, too. I saw her back stage and I choked up.
Would you ever give up the groupies?
Give up the groupies, would I? It’s gonna be a sad day, [but] there's all types of crazy shit that be happening. A groupie stole some money from me ..like 10 racks that was crazy. It’s a great memory though [laughs].
Whats the sexiest thing on a woman?
I'm a titty man [laughs]. I like titties and I like natural hair.
Are you nervous for your debut album?
I just think about sales; you know how the game is. People don’t sell that much. I believe in my music. It’s not so much of the sales of the first album. When everybody buys and listens to the album, it’s gonna be a baby boom. Everything I touch after that its gold. I'm a realist, but at the same time Im going to break barriers. This is great music and I feel like people are gonna connect with it [and] with me, people are gonna feel my emotion, and feel where I’m coming from.
Now when you make music; are you gonna make anything that praises women?
Yeah, on my album there's plenty of that, it’s all planning. I planned everything that's happening right now. I gotta a lot of songs on there that they're gonna feel like, you know how girls feel when Beyonce's on? I got a couple like that. When they hear that they are gonna feel real good about themselves. They gonna be like that’s my ni**a, I like that ni**a.
Is it gonna be up tempo or you gonna have some slow jams?
I got that too, I got the slow jams, I got variety. I got that shit she can ride to, I got that shit she can get ready to. Lately I put myself around different girls so I can have more material, I go on little dates. Letting them take me to stuff they like to do. Just to be with them and pay attention to the little things that they do.
Do you have any lady guest on your album?
No, but I think I can get Beyonce though. If I get my mind right and my buzz going, in about a couple months. I'm from Houston, she's from Houston. That would be my career on steroids for sure, it's going to be crazy because its gonna happen.
Would you be star struck?
Yeah, it would be crazy, that’s one of the moments where I would just fly out here [NY] and give them my cd, no I'd give them my tape and they [going to have to] find a tape deck and I'm gone.
What do you think is the biggest misconception about you?
That I can’t rap, but I can rap, real damn good. I also think a lot of people think that I'm not smart. They just think Im from the south and I just talk, drink, and I don’t know shit which is cool though because I'm way over here with it and you think I'm not. I give you something in the middle and you think I'm getting better but I been this good.
If you could follow one celebrity, their track record with women, with music, what celebrity would that be?
LL Cool J. Because he got all the girls and ni**as thought he was soft but he let ni**as know he could rap circles around their ass.
