Guess who's birthday it is?
A few million people, but today I'm specifically referencing everyone's favorite female rapper: Kreayshawn. She might not be everyone's favorite. Most would say Nicki Minaj or if they wanted to go old school, Missy Elliot or Lil Kim. Some obnoxious middle schoolers from the suburbs of Sydney might say Iggy Azalea.
Years ago in the world of pop domination, Kreayshawn released the immortal “Gucci, Gucci”. It's the hip hop song of 2011. This song may not have made the top 40, but everyone knows some Kreayshawn.
Maybe America just wasn't ready for a white female rapper at this time. Kreayshawn's flows might not be the best, but their infectious. She's basically the female Juicy J and I mean that in the highest regards.
Her debut album Something 'Bout Kreay was quality. That is if your invested in the brand that is Kreayshawn. If you're not feeling “Gucci Gucci” you can't take a full length of this.
My personal favorite is the album only “Left Ey3”. Some throwback background reference on this song. The title of this song is in reference to the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. She was the rapper in the female lead R&B girl group TLC
Now way back when in 1994 she burned her boyfriend's house down. The chorus to this Kreayshawn song is “I'm going to burn this house down like I'm fucking Left Eye”. I don't know what more quality lyric you want in your life. But, that's just my kind of pop culture rap right there.
Now that's it 2015 and Kreayshawn is a footnote, what has she been up to. No new singles have been released for a follow up album to Something 'Bout Kreay.
She has released new music with Australian electronic duo Nervo. The single is called “Hey Ricky” and it was featured on their album Collateral that came out in July. And, just to remind us what a classy sophisticated broad she is, her radio show on The Cut is called “Lost in Thot”.
