Drake Co-Signs Kreayshawn, Open to Collaboration
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.
