In May, Kreayshawn announced via Instagram that she was pregnant.
Now, about eight months into her pregnancy, the Oakland, California native has spoken with fank151.com about how her life has changed since becoming pregnant.
“I was gonna DJ this place in Japan,” recalled Kreayshawn. “I was like five months [pregnant] and I was still hella down, but I was like ‘Wait, is the venue smoking or non-smoking?’ They were like, ‘No. It’s Japan. They will be smoking inside the club.’ I was like, ‘Awww, I cant do it then.’”
The anecdote led the discussion to the topic of smoking—or, more specifically, not smoking.
“It wasn’t really hard to quit. I found out really early then I was like ‘Oh my god, this is it, this is the last time I’m ever smoking,’ and I haven’t smoked since… but I quit smoking cigarettes last year. That’s hard cause you’re actually really addicted to it., but weed is different ‘cause you’re not physically addicted to it. So it was really easy to quit smoking weed. But you can’t smoke weed while breastfeeding either, so that’s a whole six months of not smoking weed either.”
Kreayshawn revealed that she was quickly getting out of touch with the pot-smoking community. “I just tweeted a second ago, ‘What is a blunt? I don’t even know what a blunt is anymore,'” joked Kreayshawn. “I haven’t even seen one in so long… now they got all these hookah pens, vape pens… those weren’t even out when I was smoking. All this shit that’s come out while I’ve been pregnant… what is this technological stuff? Everything’s advancing.”
Kreayshawn’s debut album, Somethin’ Bout Kreay was released in September of last year. It can be streamed online.
