Kreayshawn Is Good and Weird, Odd Future Guys Agree

The first time we noticed Kreayshawn, she was smoking a blunt with Lil B while he danced topless to a Soulja Boy boy song. This was during the late-2009 heyday of based uploads, and hers was the presence of a #rare second human in a Lil B video. Then we started seeing director credits—she did B’s “Like A Martian” and that insane slow-mo Stalker video with all the dread-shaking. Last year, she put out a mixtape that was more weird than good, and it kind of felt like that was that.

Then a month ago we saw her second show ever, where she rapped about burning a house down like she was Left Eye and super-lazily danced in platform boots with a nose ring connected to her ear, and good and weird felt like the same thing. “Gucci Gucci” is one of the finest of her new tracks, a not-reprehensible beat-blend of Drumma Boy and dub wobble, with an ingenious inversion of a traditional rap hook. The video is theoretically pretty normal, but watching Kreayshawn rap and care more about inventing gang signs than dancing, supported silently by her possible sister/possible Parent Trap digi-clone, is like trying to make sense of Hello Kitty on Dextromethorphan. Multiple Odd Future cameos lend a little credibility, but just one look at Kreayshawn’s pink-balloon mouse headband makes it clear she’s inventing this space for herself.

    “possible sister/possible Parent Trap digi-clone” — Are you kidding?? That’s some queer-ass swag right there. The first thing in the video Kreayshawn checks her out hardcore. Open your eyes. Your erasure of queer visibility is violence.

    saying she would blow someones top off…you must be from the burbs if u believe that. take a hard look at the girl. does she look like she’d kill another human? walk away stone cold or shook if she saw someone die? fuck outta here man. Lady Sovereign already did this shit, she’s bringing it back more power to her. but she should cut the gangsta chatter and keep a muzzle on her sisters ‘nigga talk’ that shit will get them flipped 180 as fast as they came. im already hearing NY female rappers plotting, and you know them chicks dont play. they swing on sight and these chicks arent built for that kinda stompage. they would get tested, and you as a fan should not pump them up on that tip and possibly get these girls harmed man. relax and take it as pop, is all im sayin.

    i kept thinking “what does this remind me of?” and it’s Millionaires.

  16. whateveryouwantittobe says:

    I’m not feeling this at all. I get lilb… but this is just bratty and annoying. Something is defiantly missing from this… but at the same time something needs to be taken out… maybe the two girls faces along with their voices… The beat issss sick though. I’m not gonna lie… but that’s about it.
    On a scale of turn that shit off and ew, get the fuck away from me I give this negative five blackberry iphone tna protector cases down.

  17. Steve Harlem says:

  19. anonymous says:

    This shit is weak.

  20. Shannon says:

    NO.

    I can’t.

    And I won’t.

    ….and if she were black doing this same schtick (cuz that’s all this is), she’d be called a “hoodrat ghetto b##ch with no talent or ambition” or something to that effect. It amazes me how our Caucasian counterparts are revered, cheered and paid when they sell these caricatures of hip-hop culture. I knew all hope was lost when Snoop co-signed this mess.

    Wake up, folks

  21. 1e23 says:

    Mostly I’m just confused as to whether this is genuine or an act. Personally, I can’t take it seriously as good music, but kudos to her for getting herself out there. Also, I would hardly say she is a ‘feminist icon’….there’s plenty of derogatory language aimed at females in there.

  22. Death grips says:

    They look like an unexpected mix including amy whine house,soulja boy and some other fashion faggish hypster shit from the burbs….and that’s what they want.I would like to,but i really cant even try to find something cool about thiis shallow plain attitude called “white girl” mob.Cuz if i could, it would mean i could also like this kind of bitchy bassy rap from blacks and hell fuck no i can’t.
    And the beat suuuuuuuuuuuuuucks so much,this grimmy vibe has been exploited so much,it has nothing left to give but “qwuh qwuuh qwuuuuh”.
    They could have done their own thing something commercial or arty whatever it would work,but it could not reach a wide audience,this is exactely the kind of rap music that folks who listen to rap music, like twice a year(people who discovered rap with goblin),would like:Dumb White girls acting like stupid black guys to reach a white audience(MTV) we seen it before,we’ll see it agin…

  23. Alec Sye says:

    Ok OFWGKTA are fine in my book, hipsters may like them but they can rap. This bitch just plain fucking sucks.

    this bitch lame. odd future just went down another peg in my book

    This is pure Gasssss, I cant believe peple are giving this column inches. The music is plainly Garbage but you’re writing about her cause she appeared in someones elses music video. This project is so blatantly a PR stunt. Shes buzzed around putting out scratchy little demos and videos, created a name for herself as an internet oddity. The next step will be getting some big pop writers in to craft cheezy pop hits for her.

    Lady Sov 2011…

    This idiot right here… ugh. C’mon, she would get mashed in her face, FOR REALS, if she tried slinging this crap anywhere outside of her comfort zone. This is hip-pop for white suburban kids that think they’re hard because they go to school with 10 or so black kids and two Asian kids.

    To paraphrase John Coltrane, this is a fail supreme.

    give it time, young padawan learners.

    i thought it was ultra-shitty at first too. a few weeks later, and i’m all about it. #earwiggy, inexplicably.

    kreayshawn, i don’t know what your deal is, or why this is what you do, or whether you’re on all drugs at once, but the bottom line is THX.

    if you still hate this in a week, well im sorry, you’re missing out on some random fun. cause it’s pretty great to cruise around and yell “i got this swag and it’s pumpin out my ovaries!”
