Around 2010, In a series of jaw-dropping, now-internet-infamous YouTube videos, everyone from Nelly to Bow Wow to lesser-known Cash Money crew members came under fire (yes, NSFW again) in a series of call outs and beefs that stretched across social media. Soon, Kat became the most wanted woman in hip-hop – well, at least in certain circles of the industry.
But it turns out this was part of a larger story in which Kat was really the true victim, forced into sex trafficking as a teenager and later caught up in an immigration-law morass that led to her imprisonment for three years. Her story speaks to an intersection of hot-button issues: women’s exploitation in and around the music industry, the prevalence of sex trafficking within U.S. borders, and unjust deportation procedures.

Speaking toXXL Magazine in July, Stacks insisted that she does not regret her groupie past. “I stood up for women,” she said. “I just did what most men out there and most rappers rap about, ‘Hoes this and spending money.’ When I did that, people thought it was wrong. I felt like I just stood up for what I believe in. I didn’t know any better. You can’t change the past, you can only make the future better.”
Kat Stacks Deportation
kat Stacks faced deportation back to Venezuela in 2010 when she was arrested in Nashville for an offense but the deportation never happened.
Stacks’ mother, Johnyelsi Cardenas, is reportedly requesting help from the Obama administration to postpone her daughter’s deportation for two more years. Further hoping to secure a green card, she’s citing the recent case of Daniela Pelaez, a Miami high school valedictorian who was allowed to stay in the U.S. under a presidential executive order.
“All that she went through on the street, she created that person, Kat, to survive,” Cardenas told South Florida’s WTVJ of her daughter. But Immigration Judge Jerry Beatmann takes issue with Stacks’ cultural impact, noting that “her conduct was in no way indicative of someone who wants to help others, make positive changes, or be a role model.” He rejected Herrera’s request for an adjustment, which her attorney is appealing.
