Kreayshawn is an interesting individual and whether you love her or hate her, she's doing her thing.
The whole internet is talking about the "White Girl Mob," whose come up in the game has ruffled a few feathers. Kreayshawn has a bright future and we'll be tracking her rise to the top here at GlobalGrind.
Kreayshawn has grown up poor, made a video that landed her a million dollar deal, and faced drama when people accused her of saying the N-word, when it was really her group member V-Nasty.
We caught up with Kreayshawn to talk about her wild ride and find out why it's so hard for a white female rapper to get respect in the hip-hop game.
GlobalGrind: You've been on an interesting adventure to say the least. People either love Kreayshawn or they hate you. Why do you think there’s such an extreme?
Kreayshawn: I don’t know. I think there’s not a lot of things everyone loves and everyone is all about. There’s definitely an extreme to everything and I think it’s better to have everyone be in love with you or not like you, than people to be like, eh she’s alright, or she’s OK.
Your song "Gucci Gucci" is not super complex, but you are saying some fun stuff and having fun. Do do you find it hard to gain respect as a white rapper?
Yeah I think it’s hard, just as a female and just being white it’s hard, but this is who I am. This is how I grew up and I haven’t been anything else, so for me it’s just normal. People get upset about it and people write about it and ask me, 'Do you think this is going to set you back?' and it’s just like, I don’t know, I’ve never been anything else other than this.
Confidence is what takes you there and I’m pretty confident. We were in the BET conference room and everyone’s there and this girl is like, 'Wow you really stick out over here like, I’ve been waiting to talk to you this whole time,' and I’m like, oh shit, I do, huh?
