In the final instalment of our trio of videos on Chicago's fiercest female emcees, we speak to Kiara Johnson, AKA Katie Got Bandz. The 19-year-old's drill scene cred was cemented this year following the release of her Drillary Clinton mixtape on Lawless, after several other hype releases since last year's first offering, "I Need A Hitta". Here, she talks about setting a trend for the ladies and motivating female emcees to go outside the box: "I don't think that we have to sell ourselves to get on - don't let the negative stuff bring you down, you gotta let that be your motivation."
