Last month, Bay Area rapper Kreayshawn set the blogosphere ablaze with the release of her music video “Gucci Gucci”. A few weeks later, she had the internet talking again. That time, about the one million dollar record deal she’d just signed.
After a bidding war of sorts, Columbia Records, part of Sony Music Entertainment got Kreayshawn to sign on the dotted lines. Along with directing/editing videos for herself, fellow West Coast rapper Lil’ B, and The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, the female emcee has drawn comparisons to Lady GaGa, Nicki Minaj, Ke$ha, and Lil’ B’s “swag movement”. Her polarizing presence has been the subject of intense debate, especially between hip-hop enthusiasts. This recent signing, is sure to be the proverbial fan to this fiery discussion. Yet, in the modern pop landscape, who are you if you don’t have people talking, right?
Kreayshawn scored a local hit with her song ‘Bumpin Bumpin’ last year, now the rapper is in the studio prepping her major label debut.
