Admire Andrea, Life After Kat Stacks: An Exclusive Video Interview

Who is Andrea Herrera?

The hip-hop community knows her better by her street name, Kat Stacks. Y'know, the loud-mouthed Venezuela-born former prostitute who helped boost World Star Hip Hop's Internet ratings by bragging on video about having slept with basically every famous rapper on the scene.

Stacks was kind of an American anti-icon. But after spending two years fighting to stay in the country from the inside of a cell at an immigration detention facility in Louisiana, she's ready to bury the old identity and rediscover her true self, Andrea, for the first time in about ten years.
