Kreayshawn at Mansion November 11
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." And staying true to her mantra, Kreayshawn will roll through the Bawse's hometown this week, kicking it South Beach-style with an appearance at Set and a live performance at Mansion.
In Oakland, California, Natassia "Kreayshawn" Zolot had a childhood that was incredibly unconventional. She told Nardwuar the Human Serviette about her mother, Elka Zolot, a San Francisco Bay Area punk goddess who also worked at a sex shop. Get this — little Natassia would do her homework surrounded by dildos. Swag.
As a teenager, she 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., although not until May of this year did Kreayshawn blow up.
In just five months, her "Gucci Gucci" video has been watched more than 20 million times. It earned Kreayshawn a multimillion-dollar record contract and a hosting gig at the MTV Video Music Awards red-carpet show. Shit, homegirl's even got her own videogame.
