Kreayshawn on Creativity, Co-Signs, Critics & Cat Poop
Thursday, December 08, 2011

“Gucci Gucci Louis Louis Fendi Fendi Prada / them basic bitches wear that shit so I don’t even bother.” The insanely catchy chorus rang out like a call to arms for those who preferred flaunting their individualism rather than their ability to follow the latest trends. It also launched a diminutive, tattooed, 21 year old girl from Oakland, CA, into the limelight quicker than she could have ever imagined.

Kreayshawn went from being a relatively unknown to being Columbia Records’ million dollar baby (the deal she signed shortly after “Gucci Gucci” blew up on YouTube is rumored to be in the seven figure territory). Having filmed music videos for Lil’ B, and worked with Left Brain of Odd Future when they were both with the clothing line Freeminds, she has the unique ability to hang with both the hip-hop heads and the hipsters. Kreayshawn says all of her associations have one major thing in common, “it’s all creative things that all connect us.”

Creativity is something Kreayshawn has always been close to. Her mother, Elka Zolot, was the guitarist of the 90’s surf punk group The Trashwomen and the band was together and touring for much of Kreayshawn’s youth. She took it all in and now the young artist who just turned 22 this September is going to be the one touring the country, and the world. Before she caught her next plane, however, I caught up with Kreayshawn to find out more about her music, the point she was trying to get across with “Gucci Gucci,” and the common thread she’s found in the critics who are so vocal about her on the web. Kreayshawn also revealed a bit about one of her previous gigs, the way in which her cats are now ballin’, and the incredible co-sign given to her by Snoop Dogg.

B-Lister Nation
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
