Kreayshawn Appearing at SET and Performing Live at Mansion in November
Rick Ross called Kreayshawn a "dirty bitch" and threatened to "slap the shit out of whoever carries her bags." But the 22-year-old rapper-slash-Ricky Rozay enemy does not give a fuck.
Seriously, she does not care. In a recent Huffington Post interview, Robin Wilkey asked Kreayshawn why she thinks she's so popular. The "Gucci Gucci" girl responded, "It's because I don't give a fuck. I've got 'I don't give a fuck' syndrome."
As a kid in Oakland, Natassia "Kreayshawn" Zolot's childhood was incredibly unconventional. She tells Nardwuar the Human Serviette about her mother Elka Zolot, a Bay Area punk goddess best-known as the guitarist from Trashwomen who also worked at a sex shop. Get this, little Natassia would do her homework surrounded by dildos. Swag.
As a teenager, Kreayshawn would sneak into raves and tag walls around the city. She befriended Odd Future's Left Brain at an art class and eventually moved to L.A. to pursue a swag lifestyle. However, it wasn't until May of this year that Kreayshawn blew up.
In just five months, her "Gucci Gucci" video's been watched over 20 million times. It earned Kreayshawn a multi-million dollar record contract, and hosting gig at the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet show.
But the best thing to come out of Kreayshawn's arsenal of cool shit ... An online game that'll keep you busy until her Miami appearances.
