Drake Co-Signs Kreayshawn, Open to Collaboration

Kreayshawn and Drake

Kreayshawn is quickly attracting her share of supporters, including one famous fan. The “Gucci Gucci” rapper received a surprise phone call from Drake, who didn’t hesitate to offer his endorsement.

“I honestly get excited when new things happen in hip-hop and when I heard ‘Gucci Gucci,’ I heard the flows, I was excited before I even knew who she was,” the Young Money star told Invasion Radio. “And you know I got to hear a little bit more of the music beyond that and then to meet her and the energy that she has is great. She’s just a great person. She’s good people. That’s my dog.”

Drizzy, who will release his sophomore album Take Care on October 24, is leaving the door open to a collaboration. “Anytime she’s ready. I got bars on deck for that,” he said of the Oakland-bred artist, calling her a “little cutie pie.”

“You’re not so bad yourself there, Mr. Regularly Handsome,” gushed a blushing Kreayshawn.

The 21-year-old rapper, born Natassia Zolot, attracted the attention of multiple labels after her self-directed video for “Gucci Gucci” went viral. She inked a lucrative deal with Columbia Records and will release her debut later this year.

    you guys are fucking dumb on so many levels if you think DRAKE discovered NICKI MINAJ.

    Shut the fuck up, Lil Wayne did that she was on Drought 3 way before any bandwaggoners hopped on.

    @V, how come when fucking bay area artists come out tricks like you wanna diss em ? You haven’t heared what she can bring to the table yet. Rookies always have that mixtape flow that growning flow . She’s doing something useful with her life she ain’t making sextapes getting famous she’s doing her. She could when the best new artist video award this year you never know. People said the same thing aout wiz khalifa look at him now . Before you wanna try to say she suck think about it? She’s being reconized by great artist? So what you doin ? Nothin that bigg are you gone be a hater all you life ? Walking out your door in oakland everyday is a battle between life and death few make it out and that’s what’s she doing so get the fuck off her and stop riding her dick so hard. Fuck low lifes. #nuffsaid.


  13. Outspoken

    At least he’s not being biased after Kreayshawn sai she’s not feeling Nicki’s Barbie movement. He coulda easily wrote her off from that.


    ..Minne Reply:

    @Outspoken, Thats not what she said, She clarified that Lyric in a Interview she said “Girls that DONT look like Barbies should’nt Claim they are if they Really aren’t. and that was not a Shot at Nicki Minaj” then she went on to say She loves Nicki and would love to collab with her.


    Outspoken Reply:

    @..Minne, “No disrespect to Nicki Minaj because she’s got talent. She’s got an image. But when it comes to inspiring young women, her message is to be a Barbie-to be plastic, to be fake, to all have blonde hair.”
    …that’s what I was referring too. Nobody said anything about her firing a shot at Nicki. I said she isn’t feeling the barbie movement. #Heresyourchair


  14. oso_jo_ro

    I like her!
    more female rappers, I’m not complaining, and I can totally see her having fans and selling albums.

    however, she better work on her lyrics and flows.

  17. Sellouts

    Rap-Up! Your staff are all disgusting! Your all uncle toms for supporting a white girl who admittedly uses the N-word! How much is her label paying you to sell your black souls and support her?

    MelyB Reply:

    @Sellouts, ^ to your post. Support intelligent female rappers like Jean Grae, Tiye Phoenix & Kid Sister!! I hope no Black person buys this – I forsee a female Eminem situation, let yt support this garbage.


  18. uhno

    This chick is one snort away from an overdose…


  19. RDK

    as far as i see it,nicki and drake is just label mates,nothing more nothing less,everyone over there is doing there thing,so if this girl is shading nicki,it,s obvious
    that have nothing to do with drake,because if it did,he wouldn’t want to work with this chick right her,it,s all business,drake do him,and nicki do her,simple as that.

    @!!!, I agree. I wouldn’t mind people hyping this girl if she was the real deal. But she’s not. She is not a female Eminem equivalent. Nope.
