Over the weekend, La Chat performed in Brooklyn for the first time at Cubana Social in Williamsburg. The “Baby Mama” rapper and former Hypnotize Minds artist said that she’s had many meetings in New York City but, never had a show in the big apple before. She performed her hits like “You Ain’t Mad Iz Ya” and “A Crumb 2 A Brick”.
Also, prior to her performance in NYC The Fader caught up with her for an exclusive interview where she talked about her new mixtape, Krumbz to Brickz , her friendship with Gangsta Boo, and being a diva.
I saw on your Twitter that you’ve never played in Brooklyn before. It’s never too late. I’ve only been there on business. Never to party with fans and stuff like that. I’m so honored that they’re bringing me. And I’m gonna go out! Whenever I get out of town, I’m ready to go out and see other cities, see how they get down and see how they do. That’s just the type of person I am. I like to mingle.
Do you play a lot of shows in Memphis? Yeah, I play a lot of shows in Memphis. I have a club I play in. I do things special. On Tuesdays, that’s my talent night. Wednesdays is my ladies night.
You put out a mixtape recently? Yeah, it’s called Krumbz 2 Brickz. I’ve got Waka Flocka on there, I’ve got 8Ball on there, I’ve got Gangsta Boo on there, I’ve got Gucci Mane on there.
You’ve done so many songs with Gangsta Boo. You really seem to love each other. Yeah, that’s my homegirl. Regardless of the rumors that everybody’s trying to put out, we’re so much alike and so much different that put together, we’re the same. When she comes to see me, she stays at my house, when I come to Atlanta, I stay at her house.
We recently ran a story on the current state of Memphis rap. What’s your perspective on the scene right now? Memphis, we still grinding. We got a lot of talent down here, got a lot of people lookin’ at us down here, but we still hustlin’ and trying to come above the water with it.
