Fans Remind Twitter Kreayshawn Paved The Way For White Female Rappers Like Iggy Azalea & Bhad Bhabie

Bay Area rapper Kreayshawn rose to notoriety in 2011 when she released her hood girl anthem “Gucci Gucci” and had a sea people rapping, “And we stunting like/Gucci Gucci, Louis Louis, Fendi Fendi, Prada/Basic bitches wear that shit so I don’t even bother.”

Nine years later, Twitter is buzzing about the now 30-year-old artist after someone asked “What is this?” along with a clip “Gucci Gucci,” renewing interest in the White Girl Mob member.

Once Kreayshawn noticed she was trending, she revealed some interesting tidbits about her career, most notably that she didn’t make a dime f the viral hit.

“Err, I’m trending I have nothing to promote,” he wrote on Monday night (July 20). “I dropped a weird EP this year. I been working on a collective. We raised $500 this week for black trans women. I have 2 songs on this raising money for the NAACP. PS. Don’t buy Gucci Gucci or stream it. I get $0 and I’m in debut to sony for 800k. Stream or buy my new project.”

Likely to Kreayshawn’s surprise, Twitter exploded with reactions to this bit information and voraciously defended her.

At the same time, Kreayshawn’s fans reminded Twitter she helped pave the way for other white female rappers such as Iggy Azalea and Bhad Bhabie. Whether that’s a good or bad thing, the former Warner Music Group artist arrived long before Azalea was rapping about being “Fancy” or Bhad Bhabie was spitting about “Gucci Flip Flops.”

MC Serch Uses V-Nasty Story To Discuss White People’s Use Of N-Word With W. Kamau Bell

Despite Twitter’s invigorated love for Kreayshawn, there was a time when she was swallowed up by controversy and consistently accused cultural appropriation. The use the n-word in her music drew the ire The Game in his 2012 “Uncle Otis” diss track and her White Girl Mob cohort V-Nasty caught similar flak for saying the racial slur with wild abandon.

In a 2011 interview with Little Village Magazine, Kreayshawn touched on the topic, saying, “I think people are realizing that it wasn’t me saying it. I think it’s pretty much clear that it wasn’t me and it was V-Nasty so, like, she still gets a little shit for it, but, like, she’s not using it in her music anymore. I think she realized where she’s from, it might not have that type effect but when you’re music is everywhere, it’s more a touchy subject.”

Love her or hate her, Kreayshawn is currently getting plenty attention almost a decade after her biggest hit. Check out some the reactions below.
