‘Gucci Gucci’ Rapper Kreayshawn Inks Deal with Columbia Records

Kreayshawn

The Internet has been buzzing about Oakland-bred visual artist Kreayshawn (Kray-shawn), whose viral video for “Gucci Gucci” has racked up 2.5 million views on YouTube. Now Columbia Records plans to make her a household name. The label, home to Beyoncé, John Legend, and Maxwell, has signed the rapper to a lucrative deal.

The 21-year-old, born Natassia Zolot, will release her single to digital retailers on June 14 with her full-length debut album to follow later this year. In the guerilla-style clip for “Gucci Gucci,” the tatted Kreayshawn calls out the “basic bitches” who obsess over brand names. She is joined by her fellow White Girl Mob member, stylist, and DJ L1L D3BB13 as she raps in front of designer stores on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.

“I’m excited to work with my new Columbia family,” stated Kreayshawn, who has directed videos for Lil B and Soulja Boy. “They understand my vision and are going to let me continue everything I’ve been doing. My hope is to inspire others to be young, wild, and free.”

She described herself in less than picturesque words on her website. “I’m a piece of shit but, I am raw talent. Nothing but, unfiltered pain and torture I received as a child in the cold world,” she wrote. “Nothing’s nice about my style. I just got shit to do. Art is my means to my hustle. I just wanna share everything with everyone.”

    @theresa_keys, not surprising that Columbia would sign this WHITE female rapper when their urban department has been struggling for quite some years and they have little to no blacks working in their A&R department (roc nation is seperate). all i have to say is remember lady sovereign? m.w.i.

    it’s young and fresh, very contemporary. Wont last the test of time though, sad cuz many artists fail like that. And when you look at her you cant help but think, well whats your 5 yr, 10 yr, 20 yr plan, save the money you make, becuz it will be sad to see all those wrinkley tats in the future. No hate, atleast she has creative vision to fall back on. Fendi Fendi Fendi, Gucci Gucci Prada, all da basic bitches always tryin to follow….very catchy

    @Jay, Her rap skills is average at best. Record labels goal is to make money. Her image makes her marketable. Hardcore Hip-hop fans only care for lyrics but Image is just as important as lyrics.

    She’s mad dope. I don’t care what anyone says. She’s not trying to be this super intellectual mc, she has her own message and style. Some say she’s fronting with her swag but you can’t fake something like that. She’s from east Oakland and those cats are real. I’ve watched this Gucci Gucci video about 100 times already. I want to fuck her friend Lil
    Debbie lol.

    @whge, actually most female rappers did get deals just like that ..lil kim, foxy brown etc most of them rappers from the 90′s didnt have to grind for a deal because everybody was trying to sign a female back then on there label it was the IT thing to do for label they was MADE into rappers ………but females like nicki and remy did have to do alot to get a deal because nobody wanted to sign females cause they didnt think they could sell anymore

    but i think nicki helped the record labels realized femcees can still sell.. plus this girl is a WHITE ” hood” female rapper thats a nice gimmick to sell

  27. The Beast

    While girls shouldn’t be allowed to do this. But she does have Odd Future members in the video, so that makes me wonder what she could actually do if she tried a little harder and made a more meaningful song.

    If Lady Gaga were a rapper…

    BUT I am tired of the brand obsession. That crap’s been over a minute ago. I’m not really trying to hear about brands that don’t even feature diversified models. They’re not made for “us”, so…

    And rap dies a little more. One more nail in the coffin.
