King Magazine just featured Catya “Cat” Washington, one of the baddest of the bad girls on Oxygen’s new season of “Bad Girls Club,” but she’s already known for being a part of the “Breast I Ever Had” cast of Drake’s “Best I Ever Had” video.


KING: It’s interesting, after the “Best I Ever Had” video aired, how you didn’t get the same amount of exposure as Rosa Acosta and Shakur Sozahdah. You were a standout.

CAT WASHINGTON: Yeah, it’s crazy, right?

Do you feel you were overlooked?

I don’t know, I guess it’s the industry standard. Now the more exotic, mixed girls are what’s in. I wasn’t originally cast, but I think politics decided that they needed a brown face.

How did you end up being the only “brown face” in the video?

Originally there were no brown faces in that video…at all. All of a sudden, I get a phone call the morning of the shoot telling me I needed to be on-set. It was shot in Brooklyn, and I had to leave Philly in a hurry.

Did you know the concept of the video was an unofficial tribute to Russ Meyer?

[Laughs] I had no clue. I didn’t even know who the artist was. When I got there, I could look around and tell, though. All the girls there were drop-dead gorgeous, but the common denominator was definitely double-Ds. Even the makeup artists and stylists had boobs. There was a lot going on on that set.

Sounds like what heaven is like.

I watched the video one day with my mom, and seeing me running with my boobs jiggling was the funniest thing ever.

That’s awkward.

[Laughs] It just came on. She busted out laughing because she has big boobs too.

Heredity wins. Are your mammaries the first thing that stands out when you power-walk the streets?

Well, my proportions are pretty…

…Ridiculous? Insane? Make you want to get on your knees and thank God you’re a man? Any of these would be appropriate.

Yeah, so I can’t just say my boobs. My proportions are like…“Hello, how are you doing? We’re here, we have arrived.”

Yes, they have. Nevertheless, after the release of the video, pictures surfaced on the blogosphere of you and the guy whom you didn’t even know when you rushed from Philly to New York to be in his video. His name is Drake, by the way.

Oh, no, not the tabloids [laughs].

What’s the extent of your relationship?

You mean me and Aubrey?

On a real-name basis, are we? Guess that answers the question.

[Laughs] Oh, my goodness. Well, we had a relationship. We still have a great friendship. Our schedules are crazy, and to even attempt it is impossible.

You had to have made it possible if you actually had a relationship.

It’s because we had a lot of time on our hands at that point. He was dealing with his torn ACL, and I was tending to that. I was being a little nurse.

A buxom nurse tending to a patient? Yeah, that scenario hasn’t been scripted in a porno before.

No, not that kind of nurse.

It was worth a shot. Did sparks fly on that set?

Yeah, but it was more of a cool vibe.

Cool. If your schedules lighten up, can you see you two back together?

Right now, probably not. We’re good how we are; I don’t think I would change it. I’m focused right now, and he’s focused right now, and it’s one of those things. We’re in a good space. We’re like besties. We still talk and see each other, just not as much.

“Talk,” huh? Is that what the kids are calling it nowadays?

[Laughs] How did we get on this topic again?

Don’t blame the interviewer; blame the blogs.

Those damn tabloids, man. I swear. I’m not really a fan.

Why? Is it because they’ll paint you as a scheming video girl à la Superhead?

Of course they’re going to say that. You can’t get mad at the media for thinking all video girls are like that, so I wouldn’t dare get mad. [But] we’re not all like that. If you choose to think so, then more power to you. You have to understand: I’m a 34DD and have a big ol’ butt, so when they see me, automatically they’re thinking one thing.

Police are investigating a possible link between hip-hop star Fabolous and the murder of an upstart rapper near a Queens nightclub, the Daily News has learned.

NYPD detectives aren’t sure what role, if any, the Brooklyn rapper might have played in the March killing, but a surveillance video shows Fabolous leaving Club Amazura seconds before a mystery gunman blasted Greg (G-Baby) Brown in the back.

“[Fabolous] is about to get in the car as the shooting goes down,” said a police source who watched the video.

Police and G-Baby’s relatives say the rappers – both from Bedford-Stuyvesant – had a longstanding beef, though a source said they’d put it behind them.

“My son was going to talk to Fab in a car, and he got shot three times,” grieving mother Roxanne Brown said. “I don’t know what’s going on. I just want to know who killed my son.”

More Details:

G-Baby, 22, was a protégé of rapper Memphis Bleek, a Brooklyn artist who rose to stardom in the 1990s. Memphis Bleek signed G-Baby to his record label, Get Low Records. G-Baby used his ties to Memphis Bleek to schmooze with the likes of Spike Lee and Jay-Z.

News of the young rapper’s murder spread on the Internet after Fabolous wrote about it on Twitter seven hours after the shooting.

“Lost a soldier in the field this morning,” he tweeted. “R.I.P. G Baby.”

The night of the murder, G-Baby went to Club Amazura in Jamaica, Queens, without his posse, which normally would have included Memphis Bleek. G-Baby was asked to perform onstage while the crowd of 1,900 revelers anxiously awaited Fabolous’ arrival.

Fabolous got there around 3a.m., said former NYPD hip-hop crimes investigator Derrick Parker, who was at the concert helping with security. Fabolous left the stage an hour later, Parker said. Soon after he left the club, there was gunfire at Archer Ave. and 143rd St.

G-Baby was shot in the back, and a person cops said was an innocent bystander was wounded in the groin. The second victim, a 20-year-old man, survived. Parker has worked with detectives from the 103rd Precinct and the NYPD’s intelligence unit acting as a bridge between the hip-hop community and police.

“G-Baby and Fabolous had beef before, but they supposedly squashed all of that,” Parker said.
