Who the heck is this Kreayshawn chick? We just started playing her song, "Gucci Gucci," last week. (This is Heather blogging BTW). I admit, I'm already obsessed with Kreayshawn just off this one song! Maybe it's because I'm also from the Bay Area, maybe it's because I so seldom fall in love so quickly with artists and NEVER off just one song! Maybe she's just good. I don't know, what do YOU think of Kreayshawn? Do you like hearing "Gucci Gucci" on Power 93.9? Lemme know in the comments below!
Here's the video for "Gucci Gucci."
This chick started off making music videos for local rappers in Oakland, CA. Here's one of the videos she directed:
I'm always wary of the new thing to come along, whatever it is. Music feels so contrived all the time lately, and I admit it -- I dismissed Kreayshawn at first when I heard about her. Come on! A white girl rapper? Really? Cheeeeeeeesy! But I like what little so far I've heard from her. I downloaded her mixtape and "Gucci Gucci" is already for sale on iTunes. I've watched all her YouTube videos...and yes, I'm obsessed!
I found a couple cool articles about her and thought this one that addresses the controversy about her is the best one. She doesn't use the n-word in her rhymes (so she says). But what's the scoop on an album? She just got signed to a record deal with Sony/Columbia. So it's hard to judge off just what she's posted online so far. But I guess that's just what we're all doing...
Tell me in the comments if you love/hate her and why. It takes me a while to approve the comments, BTW. And I don't approve the kind you wouldn't read in front of your grandma so...#Stayclassy #Wichita! And follow your girl on Twitter @heatherlarson to hit me up too.
