Exclusive: Dawn Richard Talks Danity Kane, Dirty Money, New Album & More

The talented songstress parted ways with the popular quintuple back in 2008, yet didn’t allow the very public disbanding to deter her quest for stardom. Indeed, the immediate aftermath saw her regroup (quite literally), becoming a shining force in experimental trio Diddy-Dirty Money.

Now back on her singular hustle, the singer-songwriter chatted it up with That Grape Juice about her stint in both groups, her current label predicament, debut solo LP, and much more. Check it out above!

That Grape Juice Interviews Kreayshawn

18 million.

That is the impressive number of views newcomer Kreayshawn has amassed with the video for her debut single ‘Gucci Gucci’. A figure rendered all the more jaw-dropping when discovering that much of it accumulated prior to the 21 year old signing with Columbia Records.

Yet, as her recent deal with the Sony Music imprint attests, this Oakland native’s buzz is undeniable. Which begs the question: just who is Kreayshawn?

That Grape Juice sat down with the femcee, chatting it up with her about her journey thus far, the White Girl Mob, issues of colour and whether she feels her own has hindered her from being taken seriously, Nicki Minaj, Lil Kim, and more.

As ever, we ask the questions you really want answers to.
