After releasing a single that became a hot topic for discussion in the summer with “Gucci Gucci,” Kreayshawn has been hailed and criticized. During a recent interview with SoulCulture.TV, Kreayshawn shared her take on some of the criticism she’s faced and her back-and-forth with Rick Ross.

“If it was a gimmick it wouldn’t have gone this far,” she says in the interview. “If anything it gives me more motivation to finish my album; to prove to everyone that this isn’t a gimmick.”

She maintains that her authenticity will shine on her album, allowing her to make a positive difference in the lives of many.

“For every one hater there’s like a thousand people who are like, in love with me…That’s really what I like to do; use my voice and my star power to make people feel better about themselves – or make people feel like they can do something they never thought was possible before.”

As for the Rick Ross beef, Kreayshawn says she’s learned to watch what she says because she didn’t really mean what she said about him.

“I never had a problem with him, it was just basically me goofing off with my friends and taking it too far. If I was nobody it wouldn’t even matter… It’s definitely taught me to watch what I’m saying at certain times, especially saying stuff that you don’t really mean.”
