Her first single “Click Clack” has been featured in the independent film “On Impulse”, which dropped in 2009. She was also honored to be featured in the August 27th issue in the Austin Chronicle. The piece titled “The Wrecking Crew- This Time Just the Girls” focused on females in the Austin hip hop scene. Additionally, she was listed fourth on the Austin Chronicle's "Locals to Grow on" for 2010 and "Scars Are Sexy" was listed third on their list of "Top 10 of 2010 in Texas".
The Boo was very excited to be approached by a UT film student, Chelsea Hernandez, who focused her documentary, “FeMC” on KB’s music and life. The film screened nationally at the Deadcenter Film Festival in Oklahoma, the Urban Mediamkers Festival in Atlanta and at South By Southwest in 2011.
At the moment she is just wrapping production on her music video for the song “2 Playa”. She is teaming up with Chelsea Hernandez once again. “We have a really great concept, and I hope to make one of those rare positive and, just straight up fun, rap videos. The concept is very much based on how important it is to be happy being yourself,” says KB.
KB is currently working on new material. She does it for a love of hip hop culture, music, writing and creating. She measures her success by how people connect with what she has to say. She also strongly feels that women in hip hop deserve more than they are being given and something needs to be done about it. Her music is a representation of where she is from, who she is, her sense of humor, and what she believes in.
