Kreayshawn Covers Upcoming Issue of Complex, Addresses Critics
Kreayshawn is too much pop star for just one issue of Complex. The ‘Gucci Gucci’ singer, 22, covers the October/November issue and takes time to address the beef that rapper Game had with her, the rumors about her authenticity (or lack thereof), and how she views herself.
The white rap phenom, who is covered in tattoos, doesn’t give up or give in, nor does she back down. Girl has moxie, that’s for sure.
So, in case you didn’t know, Game dissed Kreay –Natassia Zolot on her birth certificate and to her mama — in ‘Uncle Otis,’ where he threatens to shove an assault rifle in her face if she uses the n-word again: “I’ve never said it one time in my motherf–ing life,” attributing the usage of the word to her co-collaborator V-Nasty. She continued, Everyone thinks I’m Vanessa [V-Nasty] and I have to answer [for her actions] every day in every f—ing interview.” Despite this issue, Kreayshawn would like to address Game’s beef with her up front. “I wanna slap a grown-a– man in the face,” she declared.
She is also well aware of the fiction that follows her. “People are so crazy that they’ll make their own fantasy life story of me,” Kreayshawn said regarding report of her authenticity and her troubled past. “People have such passion loving me and such passion hating me, but it’s good to have passion either way.” She finished, saying, “I never looked at myself as a marketable person. I just try to let my personality shine through. Do you think a 16-year-old girl gives a f– about where I’m from or what I’ve done? No, she loves the songs.”
Kreayshawn is also aware that some say that she doesn’t write her own rhymes. In fact, rumors spread that L.A.’s Speak!, who appears in the ‘Gucci Gucci’ vid, ghostwrites for her. She dismissed those notions, too, saying that she doesn’t desire to be the most flawless of MCs.
One thing is for sure. Kreayshawn is just being Kreayshawn. “People say, ‘You’re changing the game. I’m just being me. This is what I’ve been doing.”
