That Grape Juice Interviews Kreayshawn

Published: Monday 19th Sep 2011 by Sam

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.

    I mean really

    Gucci Guci Louis Louis Fendi Fendi Prada

  3. Tina September 19, 2011

    The media is going to force her down our thoughts until we like her like they did Nicki Minaj.

  4. no September 19, 2011

  5. Robert September 19, 2011

    I do wish her well even though I think by next year she will fade away.

  6. Those That Cannot Do, Stan September 19, 2011

    YouTube views don’t really mean much.

    Half the time folks are curious the other half of the they’re sending links to their friends like “Yo, watch this s***. Can you believe this mess???” So yeah. I know I’ve contributed to MANY people’s vid count and NOT liked what I saw at all.

    GTBOH (get this b**** outta here) you guys had to pay her all of $2 for this interview. #DEAD DEAD DEAD! Kreayshawn, I’m gonna just be honest girl. It’s not that you’re white. You’re just wack as f***. Your writers are garbage, you’re ugly as hell. Your ass is flat and your stylist should be shot. Get b*** implants, ref>>> Onika Miraj. Get breast implants, ref>>> O.M
    Get your face broken and restructured, ref>>> Lyndsey Lohans little sister. Leak some nudes via “hacked Facebook”. Show song crotch shots while exiting your limo, and finally dance on top of club tables in a drunken haze. Oh, I forgot… Make a s** tape with Rick Ross and viola…. Superstar!

  8. Mickie September 19, 2011

    I liker her….. Just saying, her rapping may be kinda wack but she alright

  9. Queen Beyonce Stann September 19, 2011

    I Feel SO BAD For This Girl 🙁
    I Mean She Can’t Rap & Too Make It All Worse She Looks Like CACA *Kreayshawn Voice* Which Means *Regular Voice* She Looks Like A Horse 🙁

    The music industry in full of people with less talent than her (ex: Soulja Boy). Why can’t she have a career in Hip Hop? Yeah the hook in Gucci Cucci is wack but the rest was lyrically tight and pretty funny. All rapping is nowadays is rhyming over beats, she did this sucessfully and is why she’s generating buzz. If she was really that horrible MTV and Lil Wayne wouldnt of known about her.

  11. QueenSize September 19, 2011

    Well…..This interview was interesting and enlightening. It made me wanna know more about her. The Left Eye track ain’t too bad on the ears. I still have my reservations but if I can accept Nicki and her nonsense I don’t see why I can’t accept her.

  12. KIMBERLY September 19, 2011

    I actually love that there is another young rap female in the game. There is room for more. Good luck girl. do your thing

  13. NATALIE September 19, 2011

    Yuck. This freak can’t rap to save her life. Gucci Gucci is one of the worst songs I have heard all year.

  15. jake September 19, 2011

    Well I feel that a lot of ppl tend to not dig her cus she ain’t out there showin her ass or p**** n ain’t act all too purped out. She a bad b**** you jus gotta give my girl some time.

  16. Trina September 19, 2011

    Who the hell gave Casey Anthony a record deal?!!

  17. Gilberto September 19, 2011

    I don’t know who’s this basic b****, BUT she looks like Amy Winehouse. And this scares me.

  18. *Dismissed* September 19, 2011

    Record labels just want to jump on any bandwagon that they believe could potentially be a cash cow. That being said, just because she weaseled a record deal out of some old white suit that sees green doesn’t mean she will be successful or relevant, or that her disaster of an album will ever see the light of day…

    She cannot rap and I don’t think she will last long in the music industry. That’s just my opinion.

  23. antertain September 20, 2011

    Can’t hate on her for getting signed.
    She found a buzz and it worked for her so far.

    I don’t listen to the Kre-ay-shawn’s music but she has a fun element and she just doing her.

    Nothing wrong with trying to make them coins.

  24. Kim Slaying These B****** Alive ! & AALIYAH Is THE Queen Of R&B ! My Faves Are Slaying ! How Bout Yours ???? September 20, 2011

Oh & If That B**** Say Some Sideway S*** About Kim………………….I CANT Cus Kim Will SLAY Her Ass Alive ! IM DONE (CB VOICE) !

  25. B0SS September 20, 2011

    Love ya Sam… but I absolutely REFUSE to listen to s*** she has to say on RAP!!! GTFOH!!! EEEWWWW B**** YOU SUCK DONKEY BALLS!!!! The ONLY reason I’m commenting is because I KNOW she will read this. Girl you will NEVA get respect… you will NEVA blow up… you will NEVA be in the same category as any other rapper GOOD OR BAD. Trashy ass heaux… you can’t even get in where Vanilla Ice left off.

    the end!

  26. I’ma have to send her to her maker September 20, 2011

    @Tina nicki already established herself before all those whities took a liking to nicki. Nicki didn’t force herself down NOBODY’S throat you either loved her or hated her. Only thing that got her to where she is is a good team and PR
