Why Did “Gucci Gucci” Get Pulled from YouTube?

June 27, 2011

Yesterday, spindly, hard-partying Oakland upstart Kreayshawn’s mesmerizing "Gucci Gucci" video was unceremoniously removed from YouTube, after accumulating about 3.9 million views:

But why? Fans expressed their outrage under the banner of the #FreeGucciGucci hashtag and collectively brainstormed the cause being that "it goes too hard." Others suggested its removal might punctuate the simultaneous purging of the recently-leaked track "Rich Whores" ("a song for your weekend BBQ playlist, if your BBQ is taking place in hell").

Kreayshawn's publicist is as bamboozled as you are, saying, "It's still unclear at the moment what was deemed inappropriate, although the matter is being looked in to. I was told that it should be back up momentarily, although I don't yet see it myself." Will you miss Kreayshawn's nose-to-ear jewelry and love/hating her while it's gone? You don't have to, really—the video's still up on Worldstar. And Kreayshawn's got a new mixtape with her just-out-of-jail sister V-Nasty. Its six tracks are plastered, lopped up versions of tracks from Kittys x Choppas, overlayed with Bay classic verses from E-40, Luniz and Mac Dre.
