Kreayshawn Talks "Gucci Gucci," Red Hot Chili Peppers Video

Kreayshawn explains her smash-single "Gucci Gucci" and her video work with the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Billboard recently caught up with California sensation Kreayshawn to discuss her sudden rise to fame over her song "Gucci Gucci." She said that while listeners may have stumbled upon "Gucci Gucci" out of the blue, she has a lot more music of the sort up her sleeves for fans to bump. She also discussed Lil Wayne's rendition of her single, recalling that her grandfather worriedly called her when he called her when he first heard it, thinking it was a diss track.

"'Gucci Gucci' wasn't one song that just came out of nowhere. There's a whole bunch of songs," she said. "We have a lot of stuff and a lot of songs, and we're just waiting for the right time to get everything collected together and put it all out."

She added, "One of the first people who called me and told me about it was my grandpa. He's like, 'Yeah, [Lil] Wayne's rapping over your beat. I think he's dissing you! Is Wayne dissing [you]?' And I'm like, 'Oh, what? I gotta hear this.' So I listened to it and I'm like, 'No pop-pop, it's a mixtape!' It's an honor to me'… I'm excited that [Wayne] noticed and I'm able to get some of his fans to listen to the original version and they like me too."

She also discussed her upcoming video work with the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Kreayshawn, who's directed videos for both herself as well as artists like Lil B, said she was nervous to work with the storied rock group, but that ultimately, their experience with videos helped her better take control of the project. 

"I wanted to keep it 90s-era based, like an underground feel to it," she explained. "[The song] really has that sound that just takes you back. It's cool because they got to take a break, and I feel like it's important for any artist to take a break and regroup. And for them to come out and still have the same type of vibe and same type of sound, I really like that."

She added, "They were really chill and cool to work with, because they've done this a million times before. They're an iconic band… Anthony [Kiedis] is still as hot as ever, Flea is still crazy as ever. It was definitely exciting."

      If she was a dude, no one would give a shit based on her talent. Gimmicky girl rappers like her take away attention from genuinely skilled ones.

    Black females are hating on this white something awful. If a white girl has more hood swag than you, maybe you should step your pu$$y up.

    Actually Hip Hop is built on the culture it is supposed to represent, and is an expression of, you assclown. Let me break it down for you: in addition to lyrics, there must be MUSIC, aka a beat or whatever form of musical composition to rap over, right? No matter how clever your rhyme schemes are, how good your punchlines, cadence, and flow are, or how relevant your message is, if it's boring, has a wack beat, NOBODY WANTS TO HEAR IT. There are hundreds of rappers who can rhyme circles around top selling artists, but will never be heard. Music is a business, artists and their work are products, and thus have to be palateable. You don't have to be Lauryn Hill lyrical to be a good artist. There are way more people who are/were better lyrically than 2pac, but his power was in his persona and his ability to tell stories through his music. Hard bars aren't everything. FYI I dig Spitta Pusha T Common and my all time favorite rapper is Big Pun so I know all about lyricism bruh. Open your mind and eyes up a little more......you assclown.

    • WHAT!

      You could not have said it better. Think about who people argue are the best rappers. They have some of the hottest beats, while lyricist like MOS DEF, Canibus, and others will rap over the sounds of nature. People Love Jay-z but when you think about it does the man ever choose a lazy beat. His hooks are always catchy. Now Nas who is a better lyricist than Jay-z has rapped over a whole heap of boring ass beats since It Was Written. So finding long term success in rap in its current state is a fine balance of the two, beat selection and word play. Judge Kreashawn as sort of a crunk rapper you have to say her music is dope. Im black and I said it. I would never buy it but its something entertaining about the thug life from the white perspective. Maybe thats why suburban white kids love black people rapping about things they dont see in their communities. ONE BIG ROOM FULL OF BAD BITCHES! goes on the same level of.... YEAH! OH LETS DO IT.

      Your statement about 2 Pac is not true at all, so please check your hating ways. Just because he dissed all your favorite New York rappers, doesn't mean you can's diminish his memory and lyrical ability. He was just so good touching people's hearts, that folks sometimes forget he was a top rapper as well. Kinda of like people forget that Michael Jackson was a really great singer. Anyways, please stop with your lies and hate, because you can never change history as bad as you want to.

      You don't need an instrumental to rap over. You can rap acapella. With out The True MC element Hip hop is nothing! There is a difference between rap and hip hop the same way there is a difference between rock and a song with an electric guitar in it. Hip Hop was built up on lyrical skill and lyrical content not beats. Kreayshawn fails is each of the elements and probably doesn't even write songs her self. She is an engineered artist like a lot of other (especially pop) artists are. What makes you blow up isn't really the beats and what not. You could have the crapest beat but it could still blow up (superman that hoe). What matters the MOST today no matter what the genre is, is POPularity and a really catchy hook that will stay in your head whether you like it or not. You need to get your mind correct mate.

      hiphop is built off lyrics scumbag

    • Tarell Jordan

      That's a real hatin ass comment. I don't know why people expect hip hop artists to be super lyrical, so much falls under the umbrella of Hip Hop musically, so with that diverse sound comes a variety of styles and skill levels as far as lyricism. Personally I think she's hot. She doesn't claim to be anything she's not, she has created a lane and is doing her thing, the song is hot, and it looks like she'll have a future in this game regardless if she sells, which I think she will. Big ups to Kreayshawn shawty do your thing.
