Kreayshawn Bringing the Noise on College Tour
Controversial rapper Kreayshawn is going to college this fall — but not to enroll in any courses. The Oakland, Calif., spitfire is performing at a handful of college campus as part of the first-ever Noisey College Tour.
The two-week jaunt kicks off on Oct. 24 in Iowa City, and will hit colleges in the midwest such as Missouri (University of Missouri), Illinois (University of Illinois) and Wisconsin (University of Wisconsin). Afterward, the trek rolls out to the Northeast with stops in New York (Syracuse and Hofstra University), Providence, R.I. (Providence College) and Maine (Bowdoin College). Indie rock band Neon Indian are also headliners on this 10-date tour.
Kreayshawn will no doubt perform her YouTube hits ‘Gucci Gucci’ and ‘Rich Whore’ for the kids looking to skip class. Kray-Kray might even let loose her Snoop Dogg collaboration ‘Keep It Craccin’.’
According to the organizers, the Noisey tour was launched with the mission to feature up-and-coming independent artists for the fans. The tour is being sponsored by Dell and Intel. In addition, on-demand social music service Rdio will present artist-curated playlists, provide on-site interactivity and a pocket-sized print guide to the tour.
